Next Games, a Finnish mobile games studio, and AMC today revealed the first gameplay trailer and details of the official mobile game based on hit tv show, The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, will be an action-packed strategy game, allowing players to experience the world of the tv series with its spine-chilling moments through gameplay tailored for touch screen devices.
The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land is centered around surviving in a hostile, post-apocalyptic world, fighting the walker menace and making tough choices about the fate of the player’s survivor group. During the course of the game, players will need to choose the right people with the right skills and weapons to take down walkers, survive missions and save other survivors. A recurring theme of choosing the best survival strategy and making the right tactical choices is at the heart of the game.
Norman Reedus’ character, Daryl Dixon from the TV show helps the player get established in the game and guides players in the final points of survival and combat with the undead.
“The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land is devotedly crafted for ‘The Walking Dead’ fans. We are very excited about the momentous opportunity to bring one of the most adored TV shows into the mobile realm in collaboration with our partner AMC, the creators of the TV series,” said Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO at Next Games. “We combine IP, TV show talent and join forces with AMC in a never-seen-before way. This game is a big first step in Next Games’ strategy to become the premier partner for TV networks, movie studios and beyond who aspire to work with a veteran game studio in extending their IP into mobile games.”
The Walking Dead has been a massive success, on the tv, in our comics and on our gaming platforms. With Telltale Games, Overkill, Activision and even Team 17 with their The Escapists spin-off featuring The Walking Dead, we just can’t get away from it!
