Today, Starbreeze Studios (PAYDAY 2, Brothers- A Tale of Two Sons) along with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirman announced that they’re working together for an all new first person co-op game based in the world of The Walking Dead.
From day one on this project it’s been clear to me that this is the Walking Dead co-op action game fans have been waiting for. I can’t wait for people to learn just what OVERKILL has been cooking up for this game. Skybound is always about breaking new ground and trying to find something unexpected in all endeavors and this game continues that tradition in grand style.”
The game, which appears to be set in Washington, will release sometime in 2016 for next-gen platforms and will feature both free and paid DLC.
To mark the announcement of this collaboration, PAYDAY 2 players will be receiving a brand new in-game item straight from The Walking Dead comic books- Negan’s baseball bat, Lucille.
