With a series of short somber, character trailers, Overkill Software has slowly been teasing a game that takes us back to the emotional roots and brutality of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic series. Now we finally have a look at actual game play from the upcoming The Walking Dead video game.
Now we see a full game play teaser as well as some all-out game play trailer from Hoxtilicious.
The game play focuses on team based abilities to survive. Each bringing in their own specialty to accomplish goals in a Left 4 Dead meets The Walking Dead landscape.
Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer shooter in which players must band together on a variety of missions and raids to find survivors, secure supplies and stay alive. Use stealth to evade enemies tactically, or dismember walkers limb from limb with brute force and firepower. Each of the game’s four playable characters has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories.
So far Overkill’s The Walking Dead sounds pretty swell and like a cool time out with digital friends via zombie slaying co-op. We will be able to tell you more when it launches on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on Nov. 6.
