Here’s an overview of the game (via Starbreeze):
Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer shooter in which 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 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 6 in North and South America and November 8 globally, including Europe.
