​by Charlie Fripp

If you have been waiting to give the next The Walking Dead game a try, you don’t have to wait too long. 505 Games announced that OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead will be getting a closed beta on 9 October.

Closed beta access is guaranteed with PC pre-orders of OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, available now via Steam and https://www.overkillsthewalkingdead.com. Players who purchase the game’s standard edition will receive a single closed beta invite, while deluxe edition pre-orders will receive four closed beta keys to share with friends. Additional closed beta details will be shared with the community soon.

According to a press release, “Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer shooter where players must band together on a variety of missions and raids to find survivors, secure supplies and stay alive. Use stealth to evade enemies tactically, or dismember walkers limb from limb with brute force and firepower. Each of the game’s four playable characters has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories.”

OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead will launch globally on Windows PC on Nov. 6, 2018.
