Starbreeze, Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games have announced the PC Closed Beta dates for Overkill’s The Walking Dead.
During a developer live stream this weekend, Global Brand Director Almir Listo and Executive Producer Saul Gascon announced that the exclusive beta for Overkill’s The Walking Dead will begin on October 9.
Access to the beta will be granted to anyone who has pre-ordered the game on Steam or via the game’s website, with Standard Edition pre-orders offering a single beta code and Deluxe Edition pre-orders being offered four closed beta codes.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op shooter inspired by the graphic novels from Robert Kirkman which themselves have been adapted into several video games and two TV shows. Players will work together to find survivors, secure supplies, and most importantly, stay alive.
Details regarding the length of the beta or the exact time it begins on October 9 have yet to be revealed, though the developer has promised more details on the beta soon.
Overkill’s The Walking Dead launches on PC on November 6 followed by a PS4 and Xbox One release on February 6, 2019. We managed to get hands-on with the game at E3 2018 and honestly, we weren’t impressed.
