Overkill’s The Walking Dead Reveals the Next Playable Hero: Grant
Starbreeze, Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games have released the latest cinematic character trailer for OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, this time revealing Grant, the third playable hero from developer OVERKILL – A Starbreeze Studio’s upcoming co-op FPS. Of all the survivors we’ve met so far, Grant may be the best prepared for the apocalypse – a steely outdoorsman who left city life behind to live out his golden years in the wilderness with his trusty scoped rifle. But as we find him back in Washington, D.C., searching for his lost family, it’s clear that while the world may have changed, the hunt is the same.
Inspired by the gruesome action of Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player cooperative multiplayer shooter in which players band together on a variety of missions and raids to find survivors, secure supplies and stay alive in a world where both the living and dead are a threat. Use stealth tactics to evade enemies quietly, or dismember walkers limb from limb with brute force and firepower. Each playable character has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories, including the heavy-hitting Aidan and Maya, the surgeon turned survivor.
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is expected to launch this fall on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
