Walking Dead to get Pokémon Go-like mobile game: Watch the trailer

Posted on

The Walking Dead is bringing the zombie apocalypse from the TV screen to the real world.

AMC and Next Games on Tuesday unveiled a trailer for The Walking Dead: Our World, a location-based augmented-reality game that will allow fans of the hit series to battle the undead on mobile devices. Like the smash hit Pokémon Go, the Walking Dead game will overlay its fictional characters — from zombies to fan-favorite heroes like Rick, Daryl, and Michonne — onto everyday locations like the corner store or the local park.

“Fight walkers on the streets, in the park, on your sofa, wherever and whenever you want,” the companies said in the announcement.

Our World is billed as “coming soon” to iOS and Android devices, while season 8 of The Walking Dead is set to premiere Oct. 22 on AMC.
