The Walking Dead Trailer Introduces New Character Maya

Starbreeze has released a new trailer for Overkill’s The Walking Dead focused on Maya, the second of four playable characters in the upcoming cooperative first-person shooter.
The new trailer for Overkill’s The Walking Dead depicts a contrast between Maya at the start of the zombie apocalypse and where she’s at now. At the start of the apocalypse, Maya was working as a nurse in a Washington, D.C. hospital, only for it to become overrun by zombies. In the ensuing chaos, a doctor Maya worked with, and someone who was apparently her friend, was bitten by one of the undead. Maya was then forced to shoot her own friend in the head – a haunting event that helped shaped her into the angry survivor we see elsewhere in the trailer.

The trailer, which you can see above, features Maya and a young doctor battling against the undead, who come thrashing their way into a hospital when a victim brought in suddenly turns and begins infecting others. In the midst of this, we see her rinsing her hands in the sink, in what appears to be a flash-forward after what happened.

The two manage to fend off the undead forces, but the young doctor that Maya works with appears to have been bitten, as she’s forced to put a gun to his head and shoot him before he completely turns. (You can tell by the look on her face that she’s just not ready for that, though she’s eventually more driven after washing her hands in the flash-forward.)

As a nurse, Maya is able to assist fellow players with healing, though she also knows how to carry a pretty solid weapon when the situation calls for it.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this fall.
