Betrayal is currently in development by Ocean Interactive, the team responsible for the critically acclaimed Project Winter. The gameplay accommodates up to eight players and requires cooperation and strategy.

During each match, players interact as survivors terrorized by a horde of walkers as they discover they have run out of resources. Players then strategize how to complete objectives while also planning their escape. Set in rural Canada, walkers aren’t the only threat. There are traitors among them who plot against their every move, including sabotaging repairs and prohibiting anyone from leaving. As the sabotage is discovered, the survivors become paranoid, accusing one another of the damages while trying to formulate their escape plan.

The main features of gameplay include Teamwork, Communication, Crafting & Cooking, and Betrayal & Deception. The survivors must scavage for supplies, which requires leaving the Safe Zone. They will also make weapons and cook food to keep up their strength. The traitors begin the game with little strength, but as gameplay progresses, they become stronger, and that’s when the sabotage begins.

If a player doesn’t survive, they can exact revenge in the form of a walker. As a walker, players have the ability to control hordes and avenge their own deaths.

The characters are customizable with in-game purchases using game currency to acquire cosmetics.

Partnering with Other Ocean Interactive, true innovators in this game genre, will allow players to experience hordes of deceit and distrust as they struggle to work together to survive and escape.– Robert Kirkman, Chief Creative Director of Skybound Entertainment and creator of The Walking Dead."
