First #IDARB and now this? Man, zombies are still way hotter than I imagined they were. Pay no heed to my out of touchness, the news here is that there’s going to be another Walking Dead game. This time though it’ll be a little different, coming to us from The Escapists developer Team17. That’s right, the Worms guys!
Centered around the original comic book and not the AMC television hit, players will take control of Rick Grimes as he attempts to stay alive and form a merry band of psychologically unstable friends.
The newest zombie romp will revolve around The Escapists signature 8-bit look and crafting system of gameplay. As Rick, the player will be tasked with securing the safety of the group by seeking out a safe escape route from each area, as well as managing dangerous encounters and desperately trying to keep your group from dying.
It sounds like it’s going to be pretty full on when it comes to how a player will tackle each level. So, deciding whether you want to play ol’ fast and loose Rick or crippling pragmatist Richard will make a hell of a difference.
The game will make its global debut at the Walker Stalker Fan Fest in Petco Park, San Diego, California on the 10th and 11th of July 2015, and has a scheduled 2015 release for Xbox One and PC.
