It went from comic book to TV series, then it got T-shirts, action figures, board games, and even an acclaimed serialized video game from Telltale. We'll have to wait for some gameplay footage to see just how much fun this will turn out to be, but so far Overkill's The Walking Dead looks very promising.

After a couple of slipped release dates, Overkill has finally started detailing what to expect on its take on Robert Kirkman's zombie world starting with a new character trailer for Overkill's The Walking Dead over the weekend. Check it out, below. Oh, and intentionally waking up the walkers is ballsy move.

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. Not sure what Overkill's The Walking Dead is all about?
