Walking Dead fans have been well served on iOS in recent years, with two seasons of the terrific Telltale games, plus the stylish The Walking Dead: Assault. If those weren’t enough for you, AMC and Next Games have just announced a brand new one that’s coming out early next year called The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land. Check out the teaser trailer below.
We don’t know much about the game yet, but a blog post on Next’s website says, “A recurring theme of choosing the right survival strategy and making the most human choices possible is at the heart of the first-of-its-kind game.”
Next Games CEO Teemu Huuhtanen, is quoted as saying, “Our approach is to stay true to the main themes of the TV show: survival strategy, finding safety for your people, balancing between right and wrong and, of course, action when it comes to fighting against the hordes of walkers. We respect the creators of The Walking Dead immensely and want this game to portray the world they have created as closely as possible.”
Next Games was started by former members of Rovio, Supercell, and Disney, so they should be more than capable of making a great iOS game. I’m sure we’ll have more information about the game in the coming months. The release date is set to coincide with the mid-season premier of the show.
