First Developer Diary for OVERKILL’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Shows Off Georgetown

OVERKILL Software, Skybound and Starbreeze Studios have a sick looking Walking Dead game coming out sometime this year. Now, I am not a fan of the Walking Dead by any stretch, but I know a good game when I see one. We haven’t really had a good Walking Dead game since the TellTale series games so let’s collectively cross our fingers. In this first dev diary, we get a glimpse of one of the neighborhoods, Georgetown. Check it out as the developers explain how they came up with the idea for Georgetown and what went into making it come to life.

About OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead:

” This latest behind-the-scenes video takes an inside look at the creation of Georgetown, a key neighborhood in the game’s setting, Washington, D.C. You’ll learn more about how environmental storytelling is being used to capture the danger, suspense and tragedy of the rich universe established in Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels. OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer FPS action game about surviving the threat of both the dead and the living by any means necessary. Each playable character, including the recently revealed Aidan, has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories. It’s up to players to band together on a variety of raids and missions using stealth tactics or brute force to secure supplies and survivors to strengthen their camp. OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is expected to launch this year on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
