Starbreeze Studios and developer Overkill have revealed they are working on a game based on The Walking Dead. Coming in 2016, Overkill’s The Walking Dead will combine the co-op first person shooter elements the developer has made (in)famous in Payday 2 with the hordes of zombies Walking Dead fans love to hate. In the announcement video, series creator Robert Kirkman gives the project his thumbs up and extends a free gift to current players of Payday 2. From some of the details, players can expect further associations between the two games.
Payday 2 and Overkill’s The Walking Dead are two separate games – but, in true Overkill spirit, we’ll make some unprecedented crossovers. When Washington falls, what will Dallas do? If you own Payday 2, you can answer this question in Overkill’s The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead’s popularity knows no bounds!
