There must be something in the air that’s conducive to zombie video games. A few days ago we got word of a video game based on World War Z, and now a game based on The Walking Dead is on the way from Overkill Software, with a trailer now online to prove it.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead was first announced last year, but it’s only with the release of this new trailer that we get a real look at the game, described as a four-player cooperative shooter. The trailer is cinematic in style and focuses on a new character to the franchise: Aidan, who is seen fighting his way to the zombie-ridden US Capitol Building armed with a nail-studded baseball bat (in honor of the recently departed George Romero, I will allow the reader to make the obvious political connection there for themselves). Take a look for yourself:
Overkill Software‘s The Walking Dead is set to come out in the fall of 2018.
