Most gamers who are fans of AMC’s acclaimed hit series, ‘The Walking Dead’, are used to the popular Telltale Episodic game series by the same name but fans can rejoice getting the game they feel they deserve with a first-person co-op shooting game that’s being developed by Overkill, known for their hit first person shooting heist co-op series ‘Payday’. ‘Overkill’s The Walking Dead’ will offer players a chance to play as new characters and a new storyline which from what I can only assume takes place in Washington D.C. as the game’s tagline is “In 2018, Washington will fall. What will you do?”
The game promises to stay true to the ‘Walking Dead’ comics and even has the creator Robert Kirkman on bored teaming up with Overkill and offering ‘Payday 2’. Fans have a chance to unlock their very own ‘Lucille’, the barbwire-wrapped baseball bat used by the notorious antagonist in both the comics and television series, Negan.
The game is set to be released in 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
