Pokemon Go-Style The Walking Dead Game Is Coming To iOS And Android
The Walking Dead is a widely popular TV series, created by AMC network, which is currently in its 8th season. If you are a ‘The Walking Dead’ fan and have a thing for AR based games, then, here is a good news. The show makers are getting ready to launch The Walking Dead: Our World game for Android and iOS. Pokemon Go was one of the first few AR-based games that became hugely popular, and continue to be. Companies are Apple and Google have invested a lot of resources to develop and deploy AR based features to smartphones.
Next Games CEO Teemu Huuhtanen said:
With Google Maps, we can count on providing the most up-to-date location data, meaning that when new buildings or roads are built, we’ll have them in our game. This enables us to create an immersive experience, tied to the players’ location. Google Maps’ unrivaled amount of location data, covering world-famous landmarks, businesses and buildings, such as the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, the London Eye, Burj Khalifa and India Gate, makes exploring your surroundings a breathtaking experience.
The company has released a new teaser, which explains the gameplay. In fact, the gameplay is almost similar to the Pokemon Go. The Walking Dead uses location-based data and Google Maps to create virtual zombies and other articles in the gameplay. This is one of a kind game, which offers real-time FPS experience. Users have to get out of their comfort zone to spot the Zombies in the real world to kill them.
The game will be developed by Next games, which has developed the Walking Dead: No man’s land. In fact, the company is also known for the widely popular compass point west. The game offers a completely different user experience compared to the most of the first person shooter games. A demo of the game will be showcased at Game Developers Conference (GDC) expo area (booth 823) from March 21 to March 23, 2018.
