Payday creator Overkill Software is the next developer to try its hand at adapting The Walking Dead for videogames. The studio is currently working on a cooperative first-person shooter planned for release in 2016 called Overkill's The Walking Dead. (Thanks for keeping it simple!)

"I'm happy to say that it's the co-op game that all of the Walking Dead fans have been waiting for," comic series creator Robert Kirkman said. In a Q&A, the project has been described as an FPS "with elements of action, role-playing, survival horror, and stealth."

Overkill also promised "some unprecedented crossovers" between the new game and its heist title Payday 2. For now, players of the latter game will be able to wield Lucille, the barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat used by The Walking Dead's Negan, in Payday.

Even without visuals to go on, I'm down for this. Overkill should be a good fit for The Walking Dead and bring us something we haven't seen properly done with the license yet.

[Thanks, Tucker]

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition debut trailer, releases April 28

State of Decay was one of those pleasant surprises back in 2013. Sure, the sandbox/RPG-lite horror game was a little rough, but it was an intense experience full of free flow situations, base building, and likable survivors....more

Resident Evil Revelations 2's extra episodes are fun, but non-essential

As you might be aware, Capcom is taking a really weird approach to Resident Evil: Revelations 2. In addition to bringing in an episodic format, they've also hitched two secretive "extra episodes" to the package, exclusive to ...more
