What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Other Ocean has released games into Early Access before and our experience of getting the community engaged in development was great.

We received a lot of invaluable feedback and suggestions from players that helped shape Project Winter into the social deception cult experience it became.

Now we want to repeat that by giving our community a chance to tell us which mechanics they love, which ones they don’t, and what they would like to see changed or improved. We’re always eager to hear about new ideas from the players that we can implement as we continue to develop the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release The Walking Dead: Betrayal in Q1 2024, however, this may change depending on community feedback as we implement changes, features, and generally progress through Early Access.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game is planned to have new features including new map tiles, game modes, objectives, escapes, world events, cosmetics, and roles. We will also be considering any feedback we receive from the community during Early Access.

All that content will be added to the game in the form of regular Content Updates. Apart from those updates, we’re planning to release any necessary patches and fixes as we progress through EA.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the time of launching into Early Access, you will be able to play up to 8-player online multiplayer matches in a setting inspired by The Walking Dead universe with rotating map tiles, 2 world events, one escape and objective, 8 roles, and a variety of cosmetics, character customization options, weapons, resources, and craftable items.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No, the price will stay the same.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our primary source of feedback is our Discord server where we communicate with our players directly. Our Community Managers take great care of looking through the suggestions, questions, and any feedback we get, and provide the Dev team with actionable points.

Additionally, we will pay attention to any discussions happening on Steam and across our social channels to get the full picture of our player’s needs.”

About This Game

The Walking Dead: Betrayal is a third person action game of cooperation and deception for up to 8 players. Out of resources, with a herd of walkers fast approaching, players must work together to complete objectives and make their escape. They’ll need to work fast, as walkers aren’t the only threat.

Incognito ‘traitors’ lurk among them, plotting to do everything in their power to delay repairs and prevent anyone from leaving. With so many creative ways to sabotage the team, the walkers are the most predictable threat. As evidence of their sabotage becomes apparent, paranoia and accusations threaten to tear the survivors apart as they desperately work towards escaping. Can you make it out alive?

Fight the Dead. Fear the Living.

Main Features:
  • Teamwork: Survivors have no chance of escaping unless they work together. Players who wander off on their own can fall victim to hordes of walkers or become easy targets for the traitors.

  • Communication: Communication is key if the survivors have any hope of escaping. Players can always communicate with other nearby players through proximity-based voice chat. Once two players find the same color radio, they can then communicate across the map, and can also use text chat and emotes.
  • Crafting and Cooking: Venture out from the Safe Zone to scavenge resources to complete objectives, craft weapons and cook food to manage your hunger. You only have a limited amount of inventory space, so make your choices wisely.

  • Betrayal and Deception: The traitors are outnumbered and weak when the game begins, so they need to blend in and earn the trust of other survivors while they build up their strength. But as the game progresses, traitors have so many creative possibilities to sabotage the team, the walkers are the most predictable threat. Poison food or interactable items, wear a walker skin-suit and blend in, lure a walker horde with a noisy skateboard, set traps, remove parts from team objectives, and when all else fails, you can always fall back on good old-fashioned murder.

  • Seek Revenge as a Walker: Unfortunately, you didn’t survive, but death doesn’t need to be the end! Teleport quickly between walkers to take control, lure groups of walkers near survivors, and try to bite the hand that killed you.
  • Customization: Add some flair to your character with cosmetics that can be bought with our in-game currency earned after each match!
