Overkill's The Walking Dead
Players take the role of Aidan, Heather, Maya or Grant. Each character has their own skill tree, squad role, play style and background story. Together they all share a common objective, where survival and teamwork is paramount.
The action is close-up and intense: take out enemies carefully with silent melee attacks or go in with guns blazing. The group needs to be able to improvise as nothing is certain. They also need to watch their steps and stay quiet as a horde of walkers might be right around every corner.
OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead offers the player a universe where every single move will run the risk of turning a quiet scavenge for loot into an intense adrenaline-fueled, action-packed fight for survival.
Strategy and skill are just as important to endure the harsh environment. Washington D.C is a desolate yet hostile city where the living and the dead struggle to co-exist. The importance of a wide range of play styles, weapons and the synergy of the team will be key to survival.

Tension and Fear
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is all about tension and fear. Actions have consequences and every sound you make risk pulling the horde closer. So sometimes it’s better to use a knife instead of a gun.
