While fans anxiously await the upcoming 5th season one of the most popular shows on television (no, not that one) , AMC has added to the hype by announcing a tie in game.
‘The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land’ will be released concurrently with the mid-season premiere of the hit AMC walker infested show. Developed by studio ‘Next Games’ for iOS and Android devices, ‘No Man’s Land’ will take place within the show’s universe. A trailer was released shortly showcasing the feel of the game.
CEO of Next Games Teemu Huuhtanen, said “Our approach is to stay true to the main themes of the TV show,” he said. “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.”
While Telltales The Walking Dead game series has yielded many accolades, the AMC games have not. Last years Daryl Dixon starring ‘The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct’ was a complete travesty from start to finish, and a phone game may not sound too appealing to gamers at this point. However, with former Rovio (Angry Birds) and Supercell Clash Of Clans) developers being a part of Next Games, this game could very well be a massive hit for AMC.
AMC promises more details on ‘The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land’ at Comic-Con international. Stay tuned to Maxlevel for any news regarding the game.
