We awoke from the dead to bring you the news that Verite Entertainment is casting and recording the voices for Overkill’s The Walking Dead video game.  You could say we're turning the Walking Dead into the Talking Dead!

The game is a four-player co-op action first person shooter (FPS) based in The Walking Dead universe where you fight off hordes of zombies and humans who are out to get you.  Overkill’s The Walking Dead just released a trailer featuring Aidan, the game’s first playable character.  

In post-apocalyptic Washington D.C., only the strong will survive.

Robert Kirkman’s graphic novels serve as inspiration for the game and in the behind the scenes video, the development team at Starbreeze shows the amount of care and detail they put into creating the game universe and they share some insight. Almir Listo, global brand ambassador, and producer, Saul Gascon, tease that coming up next will be a video on Overkill’s The Walking Dead narrative. 

Stay tuned for that and a few more surprises that might include “special casting” which has been in the works and could be announced here at Verité Entertainment’s blog once it becomes official. ;) We'll keep you updated.
