Overkill’s The Walking Dead – Introducing Maya

After what feels like a billion years in production, Overkill (the studio behind the epic Payday series) introduced us to Aidan, the games first protagonist. Now we get a glimpse into Maya, the next playable character that will join the group in the co-op survival shooter.

Maya is a former surgeon, and no stranger to making life or death decisions. Now she find herself pushed beyond what she could ever expect in a Washington D.C. ridden with walkers. Now facing similar decisions but with far grimmer consequences, she’s the groups medic and is just as good at taking lives as she is at saving them.

You can go behind the scenes at OVERKILL too, dev diaries on YouTube, and also shorter interviews as Instagram stories.
