Starbreeze has seen “lower than expected sales” for Overkill’s The Walking Dead, a co-op first person shooter set in The Walking Dead universe. As a result, it’s released a Starter Edition retailing for $30, half the price of the Standard Edition on Steam. It will allow new players to hop into the first season and experience all of its content.

Future story episodes, especially in the ongoing Season 2, will have to be purchased separately. Season 2’s first episode “No Sanctuary” will cost $8 standalone. Prices for upcoming story episodes will vary, though by how much isn’t known at this time. In the official announcement on Steam, Starbreeze stated, “By introducing the Starter Edition, we can now offer a more accessible price point with the flexibility to choose what content to go for as we continue to expand Overkill’s The Walking Dead.

“This is great for players who want to test the waters, or for any of your friends who want to give it a shot.” Though Starter Edition players can play Season 2 content with those who own the Standard Edition, they won’t have access to episode-specific characters or weapons. Furthermore, you need a friend with the Standard Edition to invite you to play – matchmaking isn’t available.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is still in development for Xbox One and PS4. The console versions will release on February 6th, 2019. You can check GamingBolt’s review of the PC version here.
