Overkill's The Walking Dead game comes out autumn 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

A glimpse at the four playable characters.

Overkill, developer of the Payday series, released a new teaser video that reveals Aiden, one of the game's four playable characters. Aiden carries a club in the video, so I expect he'll use a club in the game, too.

Overkill's The Walking Dead game is a four-player co-op multiplayer first-person shooter set in Washington, DC, as the outbreak brings the dead back to life.

Overkill said to expect a variety of missions and raids, which involve securing supplies and survivors to strengthen a base camp against both the dead and the living.

Each playable character has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles and background stories. Here's the official blurb:

"The action is close-up and intense: take out enemies carefully with silent melee attacks or go in guns blazing. You need to be able to improvise, as nothing is certain, and a horde of walkers is always around the corner."
