Overkill's The Walking Dead

Overkill’s The Walking Dead will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 6 in North and South America, and November 8 in Europe and the rest of the world, publisher Starbreeze announced.

The game will be available both physically at most major retailers and digitally for $59.99. A steel book deluxe edition including the base game, the “Night Raid Character Pack” downloadable content, a variety of cosmetic skins, a digital art book, and more will also be available for $79.99.

Pre-orders for either version of the game will include an assortment of in-game cosmetic skins as a bonus. Pre-orders for the physical steel book deluxe edition will also include four collector cards illustrated by comic book artist Dan Panosian.

A PC-exclusive closed beta for Overkill’s The Walking Dead will begin later this year and is available to PC pre-orders only. Players who pre-order the standard edition on PC will receive a single invitation to the closed beta, while those who pre-order the deluxe edition will receive four closed beta invites to share with friends.

Here is a brief 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.
