Just came out today. Looks pretty sweet actually. Set in Washington DC, with characters that weren't really ever part of the show.

Being compared to Payday, but with Zombies. Sounds amazing. Bought it. Add me on Steam!! Steam Community :: Crone

The game looks like hot garbage and they want full price for it. Hard pass.

Was watching a stream of the game, and he made a comment that $60 is now like whoa, $60?! reaction these days.

Also heard it's like Warhammer Vermintide + Payday mixed with Zombies. The streams made it look really fun, and I've got friends to play with.

Yeah, I've got some friends that are interested once interest and price intersect.

I've played a dozen or so hours into it and it's pretty awesome. Just a lot of things to do outside of just character progression. There's base upgrades and follower missions, and so it makes for a lot of fun.

Just like payday, if you have friends to play with I think it's worth it.

It wasn't terrible I didn't think, but I didn't go back to it either, so RIP! I liked that it had a lot to do outside of just killing zombies. That was what you did most but it all had more purpose. I guess it had those RPG elements to it that were pretty cool.
