The First Bit Of Gameplay For Overkillâs The Walking Dead Is Out There

The Walking Dead

We finally have our first bit of gameplay for Overkill’s The Walking Dead and it looks like it is a new way to experience The Walking Dead

The wait is over and we finally have some gameplay for Overkill’s The Walking Dead to look at instead of all of the amazing little teases and pre-rendered segments we have been given so far. Not that I have not enjoyed what Starbreeze has put together for those little bits, but I know I just want to see what I will be playing for Overkill here and not just the fancy stuff we will not be playing. All without having to wait until November 6th to get to actually see and play this version of The Walking Dead on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Yes, we now have a release date here and it looks like that whole Fall of 2018 this we heard at E3 in the past will be a solid release window and such. I will take it for sure.

Just as I thought, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player online multiplayer game in the same likes of Left 4 Dead. It is a first-person shooter style game where each of the four characters will have different roles to play as we unfold the story in the world, scavenging for goods, and take down human enemies in the world. The only difference we have here from that title and others like it is that we are promised a story on par with the many we have had for other titles in The Walking Dead franchise. Given that the actual gameplay seems as basic for the genre, that will need to be the true selling point to make it stand out in the sea of other games like it. At least that is how I see it as the gameplay will show you just how it looks and feels like the plethora of other titles in the zombie, four-player, survival genre we have here. Take a look and see what I mean.
