OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead Closed Beta Next Month

Starbreeze, Skybound Entertainment, and 505 Games announce that a closed beta test for the PC edition of OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead will begin one month from today on October 9th. Word is those who pre-purchase the game will get an invitation to the beta, while pre-purchasing the deluxe edition comes with four beta keys for you and your crew. Here's the announcement, complete with one of those hanging asterisks that footnotes and press releases often don't mix:
Starbreeze, Skybound Entertainment and 505 Games have announced the PC-exclusive closed beta of OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead will begin on Oct. 9, 2018. The news was revealed in a developer livestream hosted by Global Brand Director Almir Listo and Executive Producer Saul Gascon, showcasing new footage* of the Underpass level recently previewed at gamescom.

Closed beta access is guaranteed with PC pre-orders of OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, available now via Steam and https://www.overkillsthewalkingdead.com. Players who purchase the game’s standard edition will receive a single closed beta invite, while deluxe edition pre-orders will receive four closed beta keys to share with friends. Additional closed beta details will be shared with the community soon.

Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer shooter where players must band together on a variety of missions and raids to find survivors, secure supplies and stay alive. Use stealth to evade enemies tactically, or dismember walkers limb from limb with brute force and firepower. Each of the game’s four playable characters has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories.

OVERKILL’S The Walking Dead will launch globally on Windows PC on Nov. 6, 2018. It will arrive on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One on Feb. 6, 2019, in the Americas and Feb. 8, 2019, in Europe and other territories. Console pre-orders are available now digitally and at most major retailers.

Been keeping a close eye on this along with GTFO (stupid name, yes) for some good co-op fun but I suspect that in this case it's going to be overlooked by my friends simply because it's a TWD game and are so jaded from the TV series that it'll be hard pass.

Inspired by Robert Kirkmans the Walking Dead... so let me guess, every character is going to have the same personality, will wine constantly, and do the dumbest things imaginable?

They will then die off randomly, their family/friends will cry about them for an episode only for them to be long forgotten in the next. But fear not viewer, another even more annoying character will soon replace them - probably some black guy with a stick, who is the most annoying douche of them all (well, except for Carole and Carl).

I'd be more jaded about this being an Overkill game than a TWD one, I bet dollars to donuts it's just gonna be Payday style mechanics but with zombies instead of cops. Y'know, go into room, press F on objective, room doors lock and objective starts doing its thing but it'll take 5 minutes for it to finish while enemies attack you, etc etc.

And I swear to god if they manage to figure out how to cram carrying heavy bags into this game...

How do you think you'll be taking your scavenged cans of creamed corn and unicorn joke bandaids back to camp?
