Overkill’s THE WALKING DEAD Teaser Brings Zombies to Washington D.C.

Overkill’s THE WALKING DEAD Teaser Brings Zombies to Washington D.C.

Since the debut of Robert Kirkman‘s The Walking Dead, there have been a few attempts to bring his vision of the zombie apocalypse to life as a video game. And while Telltale’s Walking Dead series managed to recapture the tone and moral ambiguity, the new Walking Dead title from Overkill may finally deliver the walker-killing action that we’ve been waiting for. Overkill Software has released the first teaser trailer from its upcoming co-op game, which introduces Aidan, the first of several playable characters. It also shifts the story to Washington D.C., a city that hasn’t really been explored in the Walking Dead universe until now.

The trailer shows us a glimpse of Aidan’s life in D.C. prior to the zombie infestation, and we can infer that he was somewhat overwhelmed by the responsibilities of his career and his obligations to his family. We also learn that Aidan had a younger brother who was visiting him, but he is alone when we see him later in the trailer. Aidan also appears to be more at ease in this Hellish landscape than he was before the world that he knew came to an end. Judging from the smile on Aidan’s face, he seems to enjoy using his bat to put down a horde of walkers.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be released in 2018, but an exact date has not yet been announced.
