After already spawning several video games, “The Walking Dead” is now headed onto handheld devices, and we’ve got all the info for ya today. Read on, Dead-heads!
THR reports that AMC is teaming up with Next Games to expand “The Walking Dead” universe with the very first mobile game based on the popular zombie drama. Developed for smartphones and tablets, they’re preparing to launch the as-yet untitled game in time for the show’s Season 5 premiere in October 2014.
Details of the plot of the game are being kept under wraps, but the Finnish game developer vowed that it would have the same tone and tension as the AMC drama.
“Our take on the undead survival franchise will match the against-all-odds action and moment-to-moment tension of the TV series. We want to find that sweet spot where gameplay and narrative inform and reinforce one another,” said Next Games CEO Teemu Huuhtanen. “Like AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ itself, we’re not giving away too many details right out the gate, but I can confidently state it’s unlike anything we’ve seen from ‘The Walking Dead’ franchise on home or mobile gaming hardware before.”
