Overkill 3 goes universal, now available on Windows 8.1

Overkill 3, a relatively new game from Game Troopers that made its debut on Windows Phone late last month, is now available for Windows 8.1. Perhaps best of all, the game is now a universal app, allowing you to carry your progress over from Windows Phone or vice versa.

If you're unfamiliar with Overkill 3's third-person shooter action, here's a quick rundown on what you can expect from the game's description:

"Welcome to the future. It's grim and dark. The ever oppressing Faction wants everyone to follow and obey. They will stop at nothing. People are scared. Demoralized. The few who fight back are painfully outnumbered. They need hope. Someone to show them the way. Will you stand up for humanity and fight for its future? Step into the action of the audio-visual spectacle that is Overkill 3. Lead the Resistance into victory over the evil Faction forces and their brutal killing machines."

The game features console-level graphics, a high level of customization for your guns, and a host of different environments for players to tackle. Additionally, Game Troopers notes that the Windows 8.1 version of the game features a new mouse control that lets players hide and aim using the mouse wheel.

If you'd like to try the game out for yourself on either platform, you can snag it for free for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 from the store links below. Happy shooting!

  • Overkill is a great band! Glad to see it's a game with great support!
  • Power!!! Building up. Power!! Feel it. Power!! A Powersurge!!
  • Shouldn't tip that. BTW, Anyone with Win10 10122 can tell me if was able to install this game? I couldn't. Thanks.
  • Sorry, we actually had a press release from their 2 hours ago, just slower in getting it posted ;)
  • Me too, I just forgot to send the tip before :/ I can't imagine how many press release you guys receives every day. Do you guys have any kind of employee who filter all tips and press releases?
  • I'm not able to install it. I need a device with "more features" And they tell me to check the additional info And I can't see why can't I play this... I have a 2GB ram Intel atom tablet...
  • Same here. I had to install it through the old Store. But the game doesn't play nice with Win10 yet, maybe graphic drivers issues.
  • Controller support for win 8??
  • Or WX?
  • Not support. But it work fine with mouse. (For me, it's better than touch)
  • I haven't seen windows 8.1 devise with 518mb of ram yet. Must be super slow
  • It's an Universal game, as you just read, we all can agree that banner it's for Windows Phone version.
  • I know, but I'm talking about the any device with 518mb ram
  • There are no tablets with 512mb of RAM. The banner is only for Windows Phone.
  • I want Clash Of Clans please I am thinking of porting it from android from the app studio 2015 I play it via bluestacks will this gonna be hard but I'll give it a shot..
  • My all relatives(young cousins) play this game. I don't think they will release the clash of clans..:/
  • I'm thinking of making it available on the store but porting it from Android
  • That's illegal
  • Nope I'll use the App Studio 2015
  • I don't think you can make a game, like Clash Of Clans at App Studio....
  • wat?
  • Can you do that?
  • Can you even use porting tools in app studio? I don't even think they're fully available for VS. But it is also highly illegal. You could make clash of clowns maybe. 
  • Enjoy the lawsuit that will follow. I also think you're grossly misunderstanding how app 'porting' will work. Either way, what you're suggesting is stealing.
  • You only can do that if you are the developer of the apx.
  • LOL
  • Haha, this guy is trolling hard.
  • Wait, who has a 512 ram PC?
  • Oh Lord.
  • I had a TRS-80 Model III with 64k of RAM, a Commodore 64, a Commodore 128.....
  • Long live Tandy.
  • Sweet
  • Man this game is not available to my lumia 1320.wtf?
  • Noice
  • Mediocre game built around IAP's in a massive attempt to make money instead of deliver a quality game.
  • It an only aim by right click -_-
