New TWD Game Coming from Overkill!

Man, we have been sitting on this one for a while! We’ve been wanting to make a really great AAA action/adventure Walking Dead game since Telltale knocked it out of the park. We talked to everyone. We heard tons of pitches, and spent a long time looking for the right crew. Starbreeze and their OVERKILL studio just got it. They understand the story aspect of it. They understand how important the fans are. And they’re willing to take the time to make the game great. It doesn’t hurt that Payday is pretty f’ing awesome as well.

So after a bunch of flights between LA and Sweden, here we are! OVERKILL’S THE WALKING DEAD is a first-person co-op shooter with survival horror, stealth, and RPG elements. We don’t really believe in pulling punches when it comes to story-telling and neither does OVERKILL, which means this game will be for mature audiences. We’re providing some over-arching notes and acting as consultants for the guys at OVERKILL, but like we do with Telltale, we’re letting them run with it. We believe in finding great partners and then trusting them to do what they do best.

OVERKILL’S THE WALKING DEAD will hit in 2016. Platforms have yet to be announced.

Keep your eyeballs here for more announcements, and Starbreeze/OVERKILL is heavily involved with their Steam community. They have a sub-thread set up for TWD in their Payday 2 forum: http://steamcommunity.com/app/218620/discussions/16/

You can also find them on Twitter: @StarbreezeAB and @OVERKILL_TM

OH! And about that reveal trailer…

OH part 2! One more thing! They’re so excited about TWD that they’re putting Negan’s beloved Lucille into Payday 2! How awesome is that?

    I’m hoping this gets it right and is based more on the comic than the show. It seems that way from the trailer at least, so that’s good. As long as it keeps the story within the tone of the lore, and isn’t just all run and gun, I’m pumped.

    ‘Survival Instinct’ left a lot to be desired, but I’m willing to look forward to another TWD game. Where do I pre-order? Take my money!

    That trailer man….wow, amazing. I’d go a year without bacon for this. That’s something, I’m shocked, especially after Survival Instinct. 3 words: Holy. Fucking. Shit.

    I wonder what ever happened, to TWD mobile game? Have been waiting on new episodes of that for years.

    One of my favourite games, combined with my favourite series? YES!

    A lot of Negan focus here- possible origin story? Or new characters?

    I want a story as compelling and heart wrenching as the telltale dead video game, and the game play similar to resident evil 3 and under combined with left for dead. If they can pull that off, then no brainer this game will go down as a top 5 of all time

  10. Cyd Crismon August 13, 2014 at 2:09 pm - Reply

    hmmm I wonder if we can create our own characters on the new game

    I’m going to need some convincing on this one. I found Payday 2 fun in bursts but it became rather repetitive, and had practically no story.

    Can’t really tell what the game’s going to be like from a CG trailer. I’ll be cautiously optimistic until I see gameplay.

    And Robert Kirkman said “All those who have suffered from the evil survival instinct game grieve no more! We have an answer to what you have all pleaded for. Let there be a walking dead game that shall be as good as the telltale game’s game. Let there be Overkill!”

    Lucille is super over-powered in payday 2.

    MAN, i liked his shirt more than anything else 😀

    let’s hope it’s good like the tell tale series and not bad like the survival instinct game. i choose to stay optimistic. the world is due for a truly great zombie experience

    Let’s just pretend that survival instinct never happened

    I never played Payday 2, but i know people who like it. i just wonder… will we be playing characters from the comic or a different group like in the telltale games? either way im exited.

    I know it sounds kind of dumb, but I want them to make the comic page by page into a video game. Make it in color of course, but use the tv show actors voices. Graphics like The Last Of Us.

    Anyone know if this will be open worldish?
    If is, then this is perfect!
