Overkill’s The Walking Dead
Could this feed the hunger for flesh left by the nearly decade-long absence of a new Left 4 Dead title?
With an emphasis on four player co-op, this promising addition to the Walking Dead franchise tasks players with establishing roles in a team environment. Each character features their own play style, special abilities, skill trees and story arcs, and effectively managing the members of your party will go a long way towards ensuring your survival. Doubtless, a quick and stealthy approach will be preferable in dispatching the legions of ghouls, so as not to rouse the attention of their rotten cohorts. However, true savants will opt for tactics more akin to Merle Dixon, messily mowing down foes while shouting obscenities in a southern drawl. Sure, you’ll probably end up dead, but dammit, you’ll look pretty cool doing it.
Presently advertised for a Fall 2018 release, you will be able to explore the ruins of Washington, D.C. with your pals on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
