'Overkill's The Walking Dead' (ALL) Gets Date, Pre-Order Incentive, Deluxe Edition, Closed Beta - Screens & Trailer

Overkill's The Walking Dead, based on the series created by Robert Kirkman, will deliver a completely new co-op experience to The Walking Dead universe, exploring new characters and storylines.

Overkill's The Walking Dead is a co-op first person shooter with elements of action, role-playing, survival horror and stealth, that invites players to explore the hugely popular The Walking Dead universe, where they will play the role of survivors fending for themselves in a post-apocalyptic world dominated by flesh-eating walkers.

Inspired by the rich story universe of Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, Overkill's The Walking Dead is 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.


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.


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 expected to launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC, starting Nov. 6 in the Americas and Nov. 8 globally.
