505 Games' E3 2015 lineup features Overkill's The Walking Dead

Not much has been revealed about Payday 2 developer Overkill Software's take on The Walking Dead, but that's about to change next week when 505 Games brings it to E3 2015.


Publisher 505 Games has detailed its E3 2015 lineup this morning. Its list of games features some exciting games, but also includes a couple of surprises. The big news is that Payday 2 developer Overkill Software's take on The Walking Dead will be on-hand, while the 2013 story-based adventure Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons will get the next-gen console treatment.

Not much is known about Overkill's The Walking Dead (titled simply… er… Overkill's The Walking Dead) other than the game will be a co-op first-person shooter. The game will be set in the continuing world of the comic books with new characters, plots, and story arcs.

As for Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, this was the game from Swiss director Josef Fares. It was a favorite among many, as well as a dark horse pick on many 2013 Game of the Year lists. Those that have yet to pick it up will have their opportunity to grab it on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and mobile devices this holiday season.

There are several other games of note that 505 will have on display, including the virtual reality space adventure Adr1ft, the atmospheric underwater adventure Abzu, from developer (and former Journey creators) Giant Squid, a mobile version of Terraria, and Payday 2: Crimewave Edition.

Come back next week for more on these and many other games at E3 2015.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
