Overkill Announces New Walking Dead Game

Starbreeze Studios has unveiled Overkill’s new game based on the hit comic book The Walking Dead. The trailer seems to imply that Overkill is taking a darker twist on the universe. Little is known about the game so far besides that it will be coming in 2016, and will feature co-op similar to what we’ve experienced with Overkill in the past. Starbreeze has confirmed that this is a standalone title and will have no affiliation with other Walking Dead games.

Overkill did a fantastic job on Payday, and I have high hopes for their ability to bring an interesting co-op gameplay to The Walking Dead game universe. The trailer is emotional and dark, however it wouldn’t be the first time we’ve had a zombie game with a dark trailer that turned out completely different (See: Dead Island.)
