A new Walking Dead video game has been announced, and it’s launching soon. The Walking Dead: Destinies re-tells “critical moments” from Seasons 1-4 of the AMC series through a third-person action-adventure game. The game gives players a number of choices to make, like electing who leads the group, if you choose to make the governor your enemy or friend, and more.
The game kicks off with players controlling Rick Grimes, who awakes in a hospital and surrounded by zombies. Like on the show, players need to make friends and battle baddies as they trace the story and locations from the TV series. Players will visit places like Atlanta, the Greene farm, and the prison.
The game lets players bash zombies with a variety of weapons, including bats, katanas, revolvers, shotguns, and crossbows. There are a dozen characters from the TV series who will appear in the game, including Rick, Shane, Michonne, Carol, and Daryl.
The Walking Dead: Destinies releases “soon” for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Preorders are available now for $50. The game is developed by Flux Games, which has experience with licensed titles with its Cobra Kai games.
The next Walking Dead TV show–The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon–premieres on September 15, bringing back Norman Reedus in the lead role. Another show, The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, will debut in 2024.
