As mentioned earlier, Walking Dead: Betrayal combines elements of other Walking Dead Games with social deception games like Among Us. Other Ocean Interactive is not new to this genre, considering the fact that they are the makers of 2019’s award-winning Project Winter, but with Walking Dead: Betrayal, the studio aims to build upon the features of their first game.

In this end-of-the-world apocalyptic scenario, up to 8 players gather together in a remote part of Canada where they must fend off a horde of walkers and escape the area. You will be racing against time as you only have 30 minutes until you are overrun by a horde of walkers. However, the walkers aren’t the only threat, as there are traitors lurking among you. The game divides the players into six survivors who work together to reach their objectives and two traitors who try to sabotage their efforts and cause complete chaos. Each player is assigned a role that offers them primary and secondary abilities as the game starts. These roles are:

  • Traitor

  • Bodyguard

  • Tailor

  • Negotiator

  • Turncoat

  • Confidant

  • Daredevil

  • Scavenger

  • Bereaved

Teamwork plays a crucial role in the game so make sure not to wander off in the wild where you can easily become the prey for these ferocious zombies. The game also offers proximity voice chat so you can communicate with your fellow survivors and coordinate strategic methods to escape the hordes.

Furthermore, the game introduces crafting and cooking mechanics that demand players to explore unknown areas far beyond their safe zone in order to gather supplies like food and crafting materials for creating unique weapons.

If all else fails, death is not the end of the game. You will be permitted to move around the map, taking control of different herds of walkers and luring them towards the survivors, allowing you to seek revenge on those who wronged you.

That is pretty much all there is to know about the upcoming Walking Dead: Betrayal. If you are interested, check out the guides made by Skyound Games that provide further information.
