The Walking Dead is a popular property, and it should come as no surprise to anyone that multiple developers want to take a crack at it. The next upcoming major game based on it is by Overkill, and unlike Telltale’s award winning video game adaptations of the hit graphic novel and TV series, this one is actually an action game.
If you’re curious to see how Overkill is trying to make the most obvious action game adaptation of all time stand out with their own spin, the trailer below might be something that is up your alley. Ostensibly introducing Grant, a new character, it also shows us some of his unique abilities, as well as what looks to be some surprisingly well developed and nuanced narrative heft.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead is due out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC some… time. We actually don’t know when. It’s been delayed a fair bit (it was originally due out in Fall 2016), and as of right now, it simply has no date.
