The subsequent Walking Dead diversion is bringing walkers into a genuine world. Called The Walking Dead: Our World, a arriving mobile recover will be a location-based protracted existence experience, identical to Pokémon Go — usually a lot some-more gruesome. AMC says that a diversion “will capacitate players to entirely douse themselves into a movement of a strike TV uncover by consistent digital objects, such as characters and other diversion elements, with a players’ possess environment.”
Much like Pokémon Go’s entrance trailer, a initial video of Our World looks to be mostly aspirational, and doesn’t underline any approach gameplay. Instead, it shows players fighting off a undead in places like a preference store and a hospital, fending them off regulating all from guns and grenades to what looks like Michonne’s sword. There are also practical versions of some of a some-more renouned characters from a show, including Rick, Daryl, and Michonne, who will yield assist in battle.
The Walking Dead: Our World is being grown by Finnish studio Next Games, a same group behind mobile plan diversion The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, that a developer says has been downloaded some-more than 16 million times. Apple also showed a diversion off currently as partial of a new line-up of AR apps and games.
“The fans adore how a uncover encourages we to ask, ‘What would we do in a zombie apocalypse?’, and in this diversion we aim to let players try this suppositious in a approach they’ve never gifted before,” Next CEO Teemu Huuhtanen pronounced in a statement. “AR enables players to live by a quarrel for presence in a whole new approach in their informed surroundings.”
Pokémon Go has been a outrageous success over a initial year of availability, yet it never spawned a vast series of copycat AR games, as many predicted.
