Meanwhile, creator Robert Kirkman chatted with EW and revealed that the scenery will be completely different than in “The Walking Dead” since the show takes place in Los Angeles and is set before the apocalypse.
As indicated by IGN, this is still very much an Escapists game at its core, just with a Walking Dead skin layered on top.
Unusually for licensed games, The Escapists: The Walking Dead was an idea presented by Team 17 to The Walking Dead publisher Skybound Entertainment.
Prison break sim The Escapists is getting a licensed spin-off based on The Walking Dead.
Rick’s first task is to escape the facility, but eventually his goal is to lead himself and survivors through a zombie-infested world.
Meanwhile, the show has begun adding to its cast for season six as “Straight Outta Compton” actor Corey Hawkins has signed on to play a major comic book character. We didn’t get this in the main series outside of a few minor flashbacks as it was more interested in showing the path afterwards. Zombies. Remember poor Rick Grimes trying to escape hospital, organise life at a farm or hold up in an abandoned prison? The Skybound booth is going to have all kinds of ridiculously awesome stuff at it, including a crossbow that fires little foam darts.
Some things were left unsaid in the first five seasons of AMC’s hit post-apocalyptic series “The Walking Dead“, but fans will no longer be left in the dark. “I don’t know what they’re going to look like”, Dickens says in an interview during her fourth day of shooting.
The terrifying world of Fear the Walking Dead is both gritty and extremely creepy in a behind-the-scenes teaser.
Team17 will be globally debuting the game at the Walker Stalker Fan Fest in Petco Park, San Diego, California during the 10th and 11th July.
