Overkill’s The Walking Dead Cinematic Introduces An Asian Female Survivor
Overkill's The Walking Dead

Overkill Software, Starbreeze and 505 Games revealed a new cinematic trailer for Overkill’s The Walking Dead. The trailer continues the tradition of highlighting the game’s characters set to appear in the game when it debuts this fall for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

The second cinematic trailer for Overkill’s The Walking Dead features an Asian doctor chick, which is actually pretty realistic since a lot of Asians do get into the STEM fields. In fact, according to College Trends they earn more degrees in STEM fields than most other races combined.

The trailer starts with the Asian chick looking at herself in the mirror while snippets of a flashback begin to play, where her and her partner attempt to help a dude who has been bitten. The two doctors manage to fight off the zombies but not without a few casualties. You can check out the trailer below, courtesy of MathChief.

After fending off the emergency room from an attack, we then see that the straight, white male is the one who gets bitten in the neck, so there’s no chance of survival for him.

Typically, the now empowered Asian female doctor has to kill the straight, white male and take the place of being the typical badass female lead you’ll find in just about every other piece of Liberal media out there.

It kind of seems obvious what sort of direction Overkill Software is taking with Overkill’s The Walking Dead. The first cinematic featured a black guy in Washington D.C., and now the second trailer features an Asian chick who was in the STEM field.

Overkill's The Walking Dead - Dead White Guy

I imagine the next character is either going to be a fat gay guy, a non-binary Latinx, or maybe they’ll go the extra mile and include a pansexual furry.

Of course, most of the commenters are more angered at the fact that there still hasn’t been a single lick of gameplay and the title is due for release this fall. Their worries aren’t unfounded. When the only thing that the company has focused on is promoting the diversity of the cast and high-quality cinematic sequences, it leaves little room for real gamers to get excited about.

The likelihood is that this may end up being another generic co-op shooter against zombies. Some people in the comment section are hoping for it to be a story-driven game, others are simply hoping that it’s not another first-person zombie game.

At the end of the day, unless Overkill Software does something spectacular, I don’t think there’s any reason to get your hopes up too high for Overkill’s The Walking Dead.
