    Overkill's The Walking Dead was a horror first-person shooter developed by Overkill and published digitally by Starbreeze for the PC (via Steam) on November 6, 2018. Due to licensing issues and poor reception, it was later de-listed on February 26, 2019. There is currently no way to purchase it.

    Set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman's comic book series The Walking Dead, Overkill's The Walking Dead featured objective-based co-operative multiplayer gameplay in similar vein to the studio's earlier Payday series. Up to four players navigate Washington, D.C. as survivors (each with their own unique skills and abilities) during the zombie apocalypse.

    Although the game was in development for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, both ports were later cancelled due to the PC version's poor reception.

    • Aidan (Tank)
    • Grant (Tactician)
