Starbreeze, Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games have released the final cinematic character trailer for Overkill’s The Walking Dead from developer Overkill – A Starbreeze Studio. This newest video introduces Heather, the fourth playable hero.
Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer FPS 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 playable character has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories.
Meet the cast of characters From Overkill’s The Walking Dead below.
Heather’s trailer is perhaps the most brutal so far. She’s a hardened scout who was a kindergarten teacher in her old life. Heather has had to learn the hard way that the difference between right and wrong isn’t so clear in a world where humanity struggles to survive against the undead.
Grizzled frontiersman Grant has been searching for his granddaughter since the outbreak. He’s shown sat in a car, swigging scotch while telling his story to a zombie.
Survivour Maya worked as a surgeon before the outbreak. Her trailer shows her cleaning up and remembering a time when she dealt with a patient who had been bitten before the hospital was overrun by zombies.
Described as a heavy-hitter, Aidan led a busy life in Washington D.C. before the outbreak. He’s shown in his trailer below wielding a baseball bat full of nails, a bit like Negan’s iconic Lucille.
Starbreeze has also announced that Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be playable for attendees at E3, June 12-14, at Booth 5200 in the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead is expected to launch this autumn on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Check out the official website for more information on the game.
