Starbreeze, Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games have finally released the PC version of Overkill’s The Walking Dead alongside the launch trailer. The action zombie shooter is finally here after plenty of problems and delays.
As a game, Overkill’s The Walking Dead places four players in a zombie apocalypse shooter environment and task them with one objective, survive. Over the course of the game, players will undertake various missions like finding survivors, securing supplies and more. As you progress through the increasingly desperate story, each character has their own special abilities, skill trees and such that develop through gameplay. You’ll also uncover more of their backstories over time. Players have a decent variety of choice across the four main characters, each with their own play styles and weapon specialties.
If you’re interested in checking out how the game plays before you buy in, there’s an option for you. Starbreeze is also hosting STREAMING DEAD LIVE!, which is a special launch celebration beginning today at 5:00 pm ET/2:00 pm PT over on Twitch. The stream will feature plenty of online creative personalities, like Anne Munition, ANGRYPUG, and JGhosty. The event will be hosted by Greg Miller from Kinda Funny. Expect to see some co-op gameplay, so it could work as a preview for what the final game is actually like.
Bad news for console owners though, as this current release is PC-only, and the console versions of Overkill’s The Walking Dead aren’t due until February 2019. So if you’re a PC gamer, you can grab this game on Steam now, otherwise you’re out of luck for a few months. If you want, you can check out the launch trailer for the game down below.
