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. In 2016 Washington will fall - what will you do?
Bo Andersson Klint, CEO, Starbreeze AB: "The collaboration between Starbreeze Studios and our partner Skybound Interactive will deliver something uniquely exciting for our millions of fans. We’re two independents joining forces to create the ultimate survival horror game. With Robert on the team, we will bring The Walking Dead into the world of first-person shooter co-op games. It will be gameplay focused, ferocious and bring chaos to the traditional industry model – from us developers straight to you. This time it’s big – don’t walk alone.”
Available on: Xbox One, PS4, Windows, PC Download
Overkill's The Walking Dead will be powered by Starbreeze’s Valhalla engine. The title is set to release in 2017. Additionally, in conjunction with E3 2015, a complimentary VR-experience was announced for Overkill's The Walking Dead.
The VR experience that was introduced at E3 2015 is a demo to showcase the capabilities of StarVR. It is connected to the PC game, sharing the characters, universe and storyline.
Overkill's The Walking Dead and the VR experience that could be played at E3 and later at different events, form two different AAA games; one is a traditional PC, PlayStation 4 and XboxOne game. The other is a Virtual Reality experience. Stories, characters and locations in both games relate to each other as they are part of the same universe, based on the comic books by Robert Kirkman.
Release Date: 01/06/2017
