Overkill’s The Walking Dead Aiden Trailer

Posted on 11 Dec 2017

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is predictably based on the graphic novels by Robert Kirkman and will be a four-player cooperative first person shooter. You’ll take on the role of one of the four characters as they secure supplies and survivors to strengthen their Washington, DC camp via missions and raids. The undead won’t be your only worry, living raiders will also attempt to take your stuff. Each character will have their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, and play styles but there’s no information on what those will be just yet.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is set to launch in Fall 2018 so stay tuned for more information between now and then.

Official Press Release


STOCKHOLM – Dec. 11, 2017 – A new cinematic trailer was released today for OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, the upcoming cooperative first-person shooter in development by OVERKILL – A Starbreeze Studio, together with its partners Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games. This video features Aidan, the first of the game’s four unique playable characters fighting to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic world.

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 expected to launch in fall 2018 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC. For the latest updates, visit https://www.overkillsthewalkingdead.com, and follow the game on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
