Here is a brief overview of the game, via 505 Games:

Inspired by Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op action game where players must band together on a variety of missions and raids to find survivors, secure supplies and stay alive. Use stealth to evade enemies tactically, or dismember walkers limb from limb with brute force and firepower. Each of the game’s four playable characters has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories.

While the PC version of the game is due out on November 6, a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be released on February 6, 2019 in the Americas and February 8 in Europe.
