The First Character in Overkill’s The Walking Dead Has Been Revealed

Today, a brand new cinematic trailer was released for Overkill’s The Walking Dead, the upcoming cooperative first-person shooter that’s based upon Robert Kirkman’s graphic novels. The video reveals one of the four characters that will be playable in the game, Aidan.

For those who don’t know, the game will be in a similar vein as the other Overkill games such as Payday and allow four players to jump into a world and try to survive. The game’s four characters all have different skill trees and abilities to use, and while we did get no information on what exactly Aidan does, we did get a good look at the world of Washington D.C. and how the zombies in the game might look.

Inspired by the rich story universe of Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer FPS action game set in Washington, D.C., as an outbreak brings the dead back to life. In this test of strategy and endurance, players will band together with up to three friends on a variety of missions and raids, securing supplies and survivors to strengthen their base camp against the threat of both the dead and the living – by any means necessary.

Each playable character has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories. Now they all share a common objective where survival and teamwork is paramount. The action is close-up and intense: take out enemies carefully with silent melee attacks or go in guns blazing. You need to be able to improvise, as nothing is certain, and a horde of walkers is always around the corner.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is slated to launch sometime in Fall 2018.
