Next week there'll be a new co-op zombie shooter on the block with Overkill Software's bash at The Walking Dead franchise. It's said to be inspired by their own hugely popular Payday series, trading in heists for undead survival.

It'll blend action, RPG, survival and stealth apparently, and it's the experience "fans have been waiting for" from The Walking Dead. It's expected to shuffle out sometime in 2016 for PC and console.
