If you thought that Telltale Games was the only way to get your Walking Dead fix outside of AMC’s TV show, you were wrong. Well, sort of… you were right before but now you aren’t? I just confused myself. But I digress. Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four player co-op action game that promises to deliver a variety of different missions to groups of friends on PC, PS4 and XboX One. Read on to see more information in the full press release from Starbreeze Studios.

Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op action game 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 arrive on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One on Feb. 6, 2019, in the Americas and Feb. 8, 2019, in Europe and other territories. Console pre-orders are available now digitally and at most major retailers.
