Star Trek Timelines developer Disruptor Beam announced that it partnered with Skybound Entertainment to create a new mobile game based on Robert Kirkman‘s comic book series The Walking Dead. The game is called The Walking Dead: March to War, and it will allow each player to lead a group of survivors in a quest for resources.
The Walking Dead: March to War is described as a “story-driven multiplayer strategy game.” Set in and around Washington, D.C., the game will allow each user to build a camp and fight both with and against other players to gather resources.
In a statement, Jon Radoff, founder and CEO of Disruptor Beam, commented:
The Walking Dead is an iconic franchise, and one with millions of fans around the world. We’ve had success bringing both Star Trek and Game of Thrones to mobile, allowing fans of these franchises to tell their own stories through gameplay and the connections they make with other players. We very much look forward to continuing our work with Skybound Entertainment to create a similarly authentic and graphically impressive 3-D game that truly brings to life the world fans love in The Walking Dead: March to War.
The Walking Dead: March to War will launch for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play in 2017. Users can pre-register for the game to receive an exclusive in-game Captured Walker when the game launches.
