Global Game Publisher Elex and Skybound have revealed The Walking Dead: Survivors, a brand new strategy game based on the world-famous IP The Walking Dead. Players will use characters from the comics to build a town to fend off other players and hordes of walkers. The game is available for pre-registration on iOS and Android and is set to launch in Summer 2021.
Survivors are the main characters of The Walking Dead: Survivors. Each has their own attributes and skillset and are broken down in two categories, Combat and Development. Combat survivors are responsible for taking part in battles and Development survivors improve all facets of a town to ensure it’s fully protected. Survivors are characters from the comic and include prominent characters such as Rick, Maya, Vayne, Glenn, Dwight, and many more.
The Walking Dead: Survivors will have three types of Fighters: Melee, Sharpshooters, and Cavalry. Each category has ten tiers to upgrade to. Each fighter will get stronger along the way. All Combat survivors can be trained and promoted to positions of power, making strategy the most important aspect of battle.
Players are tasked with building their best town and armies through assigning tasks, building strategic battle plans, building and expanding their bases by exploring new territories. Key features of the game include community management, settlement siege, clans, and exploration.
Players have to gather supplies, farm, train, explore, fight enemies, recruit new heroes, and tend to your group’s medical needs. Camps will be constantly under threat of walker hordes, so you’ll have to build up your defenses accordingly. You can strengthen your walls, place obstacles, set up the survivors’ formation, and trigger the survivors’ skills strategically to protect your settlement from the walker horde and outlaw survivors. You’ll be able to team up with other players to form Clans. You can build various Clan buildings across the region to gain more territories and strengthen your forces to defeat Negan and his gang of Saviours who are the real threat. Exploring the area is key to unlocking new locations, characters, items, resources, and learning more about the world.
