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 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 attack or go in guns blazing. You need to be able to improvise as nothing is certain and a horde of walkers is always right around the corner.
Walking Dead Universe - Inspired by Robert Kirkman's original graphic novels, OVERKILL's the Walking Dead draws from everything that the rich universe holds, creating a unique mix of OVERKILL and The Walking Dead.
4 player co-op Multiplayer - OVERKILL's The Walking Dead is a multiplayer game where you and your friends take on both walkers as well as other survivors. Teamwork is highly important, so make sure your party is on the same page when it comes to what character to play and what weapons to wield.
Apocalyptic Weapons - Weapons are important, and they wear and tear just as the world around you. Throughout the city you can find addons and attachments, such as scopes and silencers, increasing your weapons efficiency. You will also be able to craft other tools and devices to increase your chances.
Build and Maintain your camp - The camp is where you plan your next steps. You need to keep it and the people inside safe. You do this by finding supplies and upgrades and fending of hordes to increase your chances.
Progression and Decay - For each successful mission, you will gain experience and earn weapons at the same time as more and more pieces of each character's background unfolds. For each mission you'll also learn more about the fallen city and how the apocalypse changed it.
Tension and Fear - OVERKILL's The Walking Dead is all about tension and fear. Actions have consequences and every sound you make risk pulling the horde closer. So sometimes a knife is better than a gun.
