Publisher 505 Games has released a new trailer for Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Like the two previous trailers, this new video introduces its viewers to one of the characters that will be playable in the upcoming cooperative shooter exclusive game – the elderly Grant.
“Of all the survivors we’ve met so far, Grant may be best prepared for the apocalypse,” said Starbreeze, the game developer team. The elderly Grant is described as “an outdoor man who has left the city to spend his golden years in the desert,” but returns to a zombie-infested Washington DC to find his missing family. You can see the trailer for Grant’s character on YouTube.
Grant is the third playable hero to be announced for Overkill Walking Dead Game. The previous trailers for the title were Maya, a doctor who fulfills the role of a healer, and Aiden, a racket character. A last playable hero has yet to be announced, though Starbreeze has not indicated who it might be.
The Walking Dead is a co-op 4-player shooter from the Starbreeze Overkill branch, the studio behind Payday 2. It was developed with the abundant richness of the original Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, who was confident from day one that the New Walking Dead Game was the “cooperative” Action game that fans have been waiting for.” Likened to how bet players must read bookmarkers review sites like bet365 reviews so as to know on which to play their winning bets and which has the best odds, players must work together in the game to complete missions, rescue other survivors, and stay alive in the hostile and zombie worlds.
The game takes place shortly after the beginning of the apocalypse in the DC area. Players conduct missions and raids “to secure supplies and survivors to strengthen their base camp against the dead and the living,” the press release said.
Each character is a different class with different abilities, weapons, and arcs. “The action is close and intense,” says the press release. “Destroy enemies with soft melee attacks or shoot with pistols, you have to be able to improvise, because there is nothing safe, and a horde of wanderers always stands around the corner.”
Stealth as an option is excellent, and with luck, Overkill will get a good balance between the shot and the shot.
It seems that the military will also play an important role in the game. Of course, if it’s something like the TV show – no, I’ll stop there. Let’s hope and pray that this does not look like the TV show, or at least what the TV show has become.
The announcement of the game only refers to Robert Kirkman comics, so I would not expect any kind of cross with the show.
The game “Walking Dead” by Overkill was slow. The title was announced in 2014, with an expected release in 2016. It was then postponed to 2017 before being delayed until 2018. The game is anticipated to arrive in the fall on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
