As a huge The Walking Dead fan and someone who’ve spent hundreds of hours in the Left for Dead franchise, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is something I am extremely excited about. For those of you who haven’t heard about the game before, it is a four-player co-op action FPS experience set in post-apocalyptic Washington D.C. and it looks amazing so far.

Now, we finally have a release date of 8 November (6 November if you live in the US) on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, so mark those calendars and organize some play dates with friends, because this might be the game Left for Dead fans have been waiting for, since GabeN just can’t count to 3.

Four players will have to band together to survive in the deadly environments, doing missions, collecting supplies and killing zombies, or should I say, walkers? As the game’s name suggests, it is set in Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead universe. Players can try to use stealth to avoid enemies or getting a tactical advantage. Alternatively, the can fight the walkers head-on.

The game will have four playable characters with their own unique backstories (check them out in the trailers at lower in this article), special abilities, skill trees and play styles. At the time of writing, pre-orders aren’t open yet for PS4 and Xbox One, but they are for PC on Steam and the game will only set PC gamers back R329. There will also be a closed PC exclusive Beta later this year and physical copies of the game will be available as well.

The gameplay teaser trailer does look great, but what about the unique characters and their story? Catch up on all four characters in their reveal trailers below.
