Survivors! We Made it! BETA Extended to Thursday!


Congratulations and well done! We made it to 10,000,000 killed walkers before end of the day. Having counted all the bodies, we're looking to be somewhere around 12,146,909 as of now.

As a reward, we are keeping the BETA open until Thursday the 25th!

Here's our next challenge to you: until Thursday, if you kill another 8,000,000 so we rack it up to a cool 20 million total kills, we will extend the final period through the weekend, until Sunday the 28th.

It's great seeing everyone play, watching streams and interacting with you in our community. Developers from the team are jumping in and having a lot of fun playing.

We look forward to seeing if you can complete our next goal!

See you at the Anderson Camp!

BETA - Part 3 - New Missions and Patch Notes

Hello survivors!

Hope you had a great week, now it’s time to jump back onto the streets of Washington DC with the third and final part of the closed PC BETA. If you didn’t check out our latest developer update, make sure you do, because we have a Community challenge for you over the weekend!


New Content

Progression Updates
Happy Beta 3 to all! We have a tons of progression updates for you, including character and level centric content. We are increasing the maximum character level cap to 10 and setting the stage for the new levels.
  • Increasing maximum character level 5 > 10 during the beta
  • West End Area route is available from the start of the game.
  • West End Area route scrap and equipment cost reduced to 0 for players with an existing save file.
New Levels
We’re cramming in two more missions for this weekend as well. “Worse Than Walkers” will pit you against The Family who are looking to steal your camp supplies. Meanwhile, “Listening In” will have you sneaking through moonlit streets of the West End Underpass, infiltrating an outpost belonging to the same faction. We also have three new Expeditions, centering around Samson Bros. shipping. All the quests associated with these new missions will be unlocked as well.
  • “Worse Than Walkers” mission added and unlocked from the start during the beta.
  • “Listening In” mission added and unlocked from the start during the beta.
  • “Samson Bros” expeditions can be unlocked during the beta.
  • Adding two new bounties for “Listening In” on normal difficulty and hard difficulty.
  • “Hard” difficulty unlocked from the start for “The First Shot”, “Hell or High Water”, “Worse Than Walkers”, and “Listening In” during the beta

Hard Difficulty Unlocked
And finally, for those thinking normal is becoming too easy, we’re unlocking “Hard” difficulty for all story missions, as well as keeping normal difficulty opened.


Bandage cost was reduced to give non-Maya teams a fighting chance out in the wild. While you won’t have an amazing revive speed, this reduction in cost will enable medic-less teams to fight on longer.
  • Bandage crafting cost reduced 3/3/3/3 > 2/2/2/2

Mechanical Tool Kit
The mechanical tool kit cost was shifted to make it not overlap with the same design space as the Power tool kit. This means certain characters now have a more efficient tool option with regards to cost distribution on their loadout.
  • Mechanical tool kit crafting cost changed from 1 Cloth/1 Gadget > 1 Metal/1 Gadget

Weapon Spread
This most strongly applies to sniper rifles, as we have noticed many people missing shots that should have landed. This means overall players will be more accurate with all weapons, especially while aiming down sights.
  • Spread for many weapons has been tightened dramatically.

Heavy Bandit
While the heavy was quite a menacing enemy, we saw that fighting against him did not happen as we intended. To address this, we reduced his overall health and armor resistance. We increased his reactiveness and aggressivity. So now he’s even more of a threat at close range.
  • Lowered Bandit Heavy health, shield and armor values, increased chance to stun or stagger, decreased aiming time, and increased his damage output.

First Shot
Slightly lowered the number of zombies on First Shot Normal difficulty

We’ve made improvements to the Hordemeter system that should lead to more tension when a new level of Hordemeter is reached and give more time to recover after the noise dies down
  • Improved how quickly the horde responds when a new horde level is reached. Increased the down time between waves of enemies in the horde.

Explosive Barrel
We at Overkill believe that there is nothing better than crispy fried walkers in the morning, noon, and night, so we’re giving you a second barrel for those extra crispy lovers out there.
  • Increasing explosive barrel amount during camp defense 1 > 2

Survivor Missions
Players were using high level survivor missions less as a way to get high level rewards, and more as a "trial by fire" for their poor level 1 survivors. We have adjusted the failure XP for mid and high level survivor missions as a result.
  • Survivor Mission Tweaks

  • XP on failure modifier for survivor missions at level 4, 5, and 6 reduced 50% > 25% of the success value.
  • XP on failure modifier for survivor missions at level 7, 8, 9, and 10 reduced 50% > 10% of the success value.
  • Adjustment on Survivor Mission threat levels
  • Fixing common weapon reward icon to use "?" instead of assault rifle picture

Part 3 is now Live. Have fun!

About This Game

OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is an action-filled four-player co-op multiplayer first-person shooter set in Washington, D.C. after an outbreak brought the dead back to life. In this test of skill, strategy and teamwork players will band together with up to three friends on a variety of missions, securing supplies as well as survivors to strengthen their camp against the threat of both the dead and the living - by any means necessary.

A New Story Within the World of The Walking Dead. In OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, players are introduced to Aidan, Maya, Grant and Heather; four people brought together by necessity and the willingness to do whatever it takes to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic world. Inspired by the rich story universe of Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead sheds light on some of the events that take place in Washington D.C.

Welcome to the Wasteland of Washington D.C. Explore the capital after the outbreak, and discover what happened. Journey through the districts of the desolate city, and search lost neighborhoods such as Georgetown for loot, supplies and other survivors. Tread lightly, as any noise can be heard by both the dead and the living, and any mistake runs the risk of attracting a horde of walkers.

Improvise, Adapt, Overcome. In a world where everything has stopped working, players will have to make do with what they find. The post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead is a harsh place to live in, let alone find things that work. As players loot the city for supplies, they will come to understand that weapons and ammunition are scarce and their condition vary. If not maintained, guns will jam as you pull the trigger, silencers will break, and old sights will challenge your skills as you take aim.

Home Is Where Your Camp Is. You won’t always have to go looking for trouble, it will also find you. Defend your camp against roaming hordes of walkers when they lock on to your camp. Strengthen your defenses, and take on waves of walkers while keeping the other camp members safe.

Think. Fight. Live. Each playable character comes with a unique skill tree, squad role, play style and background story. They all share a common objective, where survival and teamwork is paramount. The action is up-close and intense: take out enemies carefully with silent melee attacks, or go in guns blazing. You need to be able to improvise, as nothing is certain and a horde of walkers will always be right around the corner.

The Story Continues. Development on OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead will continue after release, offering players new storylines to experience, new places to explore, new weapons to use, and much more. The post-launch campaign is built around OVERKILL Software’s philosophy of constantly evolving a game together with the community.

Powered by Unreal Technology. Capturing the dark and moody universe of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead in stunning detail, the Unreal Engine offers players the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in a highly-detailed rendition of The Walking Dead universe. Experience hundreds of horrifying walkers on-screen in a way that will get your heart pounding.

From The Makers of PAYDAY. OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is made by OVERKILL Software, the developers of PAYDAY: The Heist and PAYDAY 2. OVERKILL is a blend of industry veterans, freshly graduated specialists and great partners. Our passion is to create kick-ass cooperative action games together with our community.
