The Walking Dead: All-Stars is the latest mobile game taking place in The Walking Dead's universe, this time in the form of a tactical squad-based RPG. The Walking Dead: All-Stars will allow players to collect a wide range of survivors, including some of the most iconic characters from The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead is an extremely popular franchise, having begun as a thrilling and gruesome zombie horror comic series before being adapted into AMC's live-action The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead, and The Walking Dead: World Beyond television dramas. The franchise has since spun off into numerous games, particularly Telltale Games' The Walking Dead series, as well as a VR adaptation in The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners. The franchise has also dipped into the mobile games market with several entries, including The Walking Dead: Survivors, Walking Dead: Road to Survival, and The Walking Dead -- No Man's Land.
The game's visual style is clearly based on The Walking Dead comic series rather than the live-action AMC series, which lends well to the 2D mobile game format. A diverse cast of familiar survivors including Rick, Michonne, and Glenn will be collectible along with antagonists such as Negan and Alpha, so fans of The Walking Dead will most likely have a chance to acquire their favorite characters. The game will include several different modes besides the normal stages, such as Supply Run, Camp Defense, Joint Combat, and Auto-Search. A dedicated PvP mode also pits players' squads against one another to obtain resources in true The Walking Dead fashion.
The Walking Dead: All-Stars will also have a PvP mode where players can face off against one another. Players who participate and succeed in the PvP mode will be rewarded with items to help strengthen their base.
Pre-registration for the game is available on The Walking Dead: All-Stars' website which will give gamers a chance to try it out early, although no full release date has been announced as of yet. A zombie-stomping squad-based collection game might be just the time-killer The Walking Dead fans need while waiting for the big premiere of Tales of the Walking Dead.
