Playing Pokémon GO and seeing the game’s massive success, I’ve come to realize just how fun and successful mobile augmented-reality titles could be. I am a big The Walking Dead fan, after reading the graphic novels and watching AMC’s hit television show. If you love zombie-themed games and other entertainment, then there is some exceptionally great news for you!
AMC and developer Next Games have announced a mobile title coming to the Android and iOS devices soon, entitled The Walking Dead: Our World. We don’t know much about The Walking Dead: Our World yet, other than a brief description on the game’s official website, which reads:
“The Walking Dead: Our World, first-of-a-kind location based augmented reality mobile game will hit Apple App Store and Google Play soon. Fight walkers on the streets, in the park, on your sofa, wherever and whenever you feel like it. You don’t need to face the apocalypse alone; Rick, Daryl, Michonne and all your
The live-action trailer, which you can view at the bottom of this articles, does look fantastic, showing players fighting Walkers (zombies) in the real world, wherever they go, be it a hospital, park or while on public transportation. The trailer further reveals that you can pick up items in the world, such as a katana, shoot zombies with an assault rifle, blow them up and meet your favourite characters such as Daryl Dixon and Rick Grimes from the television show.
We will have to wait to see some actual gameplay, but it does look exceptionally frightening and could deliver a very intense experience. However, I can’t help but think back to the first trailer of Pokémon GO, which showed people battling the legendary Mewtwo, as we all know how long it took Niantic’s mobile sensation to even release legendary Pokémon.
At the time of writing it is unclear if the game will be available for South Africans at launch or exactly when it will launch. However, if I was a betting man, I would figure the game could launch in October alongside Season 8 of The Walking Dead.
Watch the first trailer for the game below and then tell us if this is something you would be interested in playing.
