Way back in 2014, Payday developer Overkill announced that they were making a co-op first person shooter set in The Walking Dead universe. Since then details have been few and far between, with the release date regularly being pushed back.

After teasing a reveal, which occurred on Sunday, the studio finally released some details on the game alongside a new character trailer.

The trailer, which you can view below, shows Aiden, a business man in Washington, living a stressful life in the rat race before it quickly cuts to a shot of the man suited up in survival gear walking the post-apocalyptic streets. He then uses a car horn to lure a group of walkers and quickly gets to work on them with his nail-studded baseball bat.

The game will feature four player cooperative gameplay with each character having a unique set of skills, special abilities and story arc.

In the livestream reveal (watch here), Overkill revealed that the game will be broken up into separate raid-style missions in which players will collect supplies to support extra survivors and fortify their base.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is set for release in Fall 2018 and will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
