Overkill's The Walking Dead has now been a very long time coming, but it's close at last, and we actually have the chance to join the game's official closed beta from today.
Marketed as a four-player CO-OP FPS where you fight the dead as well as the living in a post-apocalyptic Washington DC, Overkill's The Walking Dead is on ground well-tread, and the pressure is high for Overkill to offer something new and interesting with their game.
Overkill's The Walking Dead: How to Enter Closed Beta
The only way for you to join the game's closed beta testing phase is to pony up €49,99, as it turns out. Pre-purchasing Overkill's The Walking Dead on Steam will grant you intermittent access to the game's closed beta, depending on the times it goes live.
While pre-purchasing the base edition of Overkill's The Walking Dead will net you a single closed beta access key, going for the Deluxe Edition will grant you three additional keys to share with friends.
Overkill's The Walking Dead: When will Closed Beta take place
Players eager to try the game out will have three separate chances to do so! Overkill intend to stretch The Walking Dead's closed beta over three separate time slots, the first one having kicked off on 9th of October.
October 9 13:00 EST - October 11 03:00 EST
October 12 13:00 EST - October 15 12:00 EST
October 19 13:00 EST - October 22 12:00 EST
Overkill's The Walking Dead Deluxe Edition
Players who decide to purchase the Deluxe Edition of Overkill's upcoming zombie shooter for €67,99 will get a whole bunch of additional goodies with their game, including the total of four closed beta access keys! Those who pre-order will get the full game, the Night Raid skin pack, a digital art book, and a copy of the game's soundtrack.
Overkill's The Walking Dead Preorder Bonus
All those who pre-order Overkill's The Walking Dead on PC - be it the base edition or Deluxe - will also receive the bonus OVERKILL cosmetic skin pack. Though we don't know what exactly this skin pack contains, it's there as a nice additional morsel for those who would've pre-ordered anyway.
