Finally, some news on Overkill's The Walking Dead

More On: The Walking Dead

If you, like me, were pumped for Overkill's The Walking Dead game when it was first announced last year, but kind of forgot about it, well I have some good news. And I mean literally, I only have some news. 

It's a VFX breakdown of the Aidan trailer from December. Now, while this isn't exactly a more detailed drop on the game's plot, design, and characters, it does at least give an insight into how it's made. 

The CG and VFX is done by Goodbye Kansas Studios, and while the details of how they do all the rendering aren't explained in the most excruciating of details, it's clear that a ton of work is going into this. From adapting the actor's face to the digital world, to then manipulating the muscles to get different expressions, this is promising to at least be a good-looking game. 

You can visit Goodbye Kansas Studios' website here, and Overkill's here. Funny enough, we actually do get a small detail drop on Overkill's site. Paraphrasing, it's a four-player co-op requiring teamwork, with each player getting their own Special Abilities, Skill Trees, and even Story Arcs. Overkill's The Walking Dead will be out later this year.
