A cryptic teaser video has been released by AMC depicting an upcoming Walking Dead game for mobile called No Man's Land. It promises to bring some great-looking graphics to the table and the hard decision-making that we're used to from the Telltale games. There aren't a lot of details to run on, but here's what the press release says.
The game, titled The Walking Dead: No Man's Land, will allow players to experience the world of the iconic show through gameplay exclusively developed for smartphones and tablet devices. Developed by Next Games in close collaboration with AMC, the game will feature themes familiar to the TV series, where characters fight for survival in a post-apocalyptic, walker-infested world. A recurring theme of choosing the right survival strategy and making the most human choices possible is at the heart of the first-of-its-kind game.
I'm reminded a little bit of the yet-to-be-released war survival game coming from 11bit called This War of Mine, and I'm curious to see which one comes out first, and how similar they end up being. Telltale's game was dramatic and hugely successful, while there was a run-and-gun title called Assault which wasn't quite as compelling. With any luck, No Man's Land will be just as more about strategy than anything.
No Man's Land is launching in early 2015, alongside the mid-season premiere of the TV show. What would you guys like to see from the next Walking Dead game? Are you up to speed on the TV series? What did you think of the previous Walking Dead Games?
