New Walking Dead Game Announced

I hope you’re not sick of zombies, because a new game based on The Walking Dead is on the way.

This one is being made by Payday developer Overkill Software, and is appropriately titled Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Like the Payday games, it will be a first-person shooter based around co-op, with you and your fellow survivors working together to slay the undead. Best of all, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is partnering with Overkill on the game, saying that he’s a big fan of their previous work.

Expect to see Overkill’s The Walking Dead take a bite out of the PC and consoles in 2016. The bar is set very high given the success of Telltale’s Walking Dead adventure games, but it will almost certainly be a big improvement over last year’s critically-panned shooter The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.
