Starbreeze, Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games have released the first official gameplay trailer for OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, the upcoming cooperative multiplayer FPS from developer OVERKILL – A Starbreeze Studio. The video also reveals the game is expected to launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC on Nov. 6 in North and South America and Nov. 8 for the rest of the world, including Europe.
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is available to pre-order now as a digital title on all platforms and as a physical boxed product for consoles only at most major retailers for $59.99. A steel book deluxe edition of OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, featuring the base game, the “Night Raid Character Pack” DLC, a variety of cosmetic skins, a digital art book and more, is also available to pre-order for $79.99. Players who pre-order either version will receive an assortment of in-game cosmetic skins as a bonus. As an homage to its comic book heritage, the physical steel book deluxe edition will also feature four collector cards illustrated by comic book artist Dan Panosian.
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead’s PC-exclusive closed beta will begin later this year. Closed beta access will be available for PC pre-orders only. Players who pre-order the standard edition of OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead will receive a single invitation to the closed beta, while those who pre-order the game’s deluxe edition will receive four closed beta invites to share with friends.
Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer shooter in which players must band together on a variety of missions and raids to find survivors, secure supplies and stay alive. Use stealth to evade enemies tactically, or dismember walkers limb from limb with brute force and firepower. Each of the game’s four playable characters has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories.
Starbreeze released cinematic character trailers for each of the game’s main heroes, giving players a closer look at them before and after the world changed. The complete series is available now:
