Playing with the zombies.
A new tabletop role-playing game set in the apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead is being planned for a fall 2023 release, according to a report on comicbook.com.
AMC and Free League Publishing are developing The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game, which will launch on Kickstarter next spring.
The new game, as explained, will put a new spin on Free League’s Year Zero game system–with players “honing their physical skills and exploring their reasons for survival.” Tomas Harenstam and Nils Karlen will direct the game, with Nils Hintze serving as lead writer and Gustaf Ekelund and Martin Grip as lead artists.
In announcing the game, TWD chief content officer Scott M. Gimple said The Walking Dead “has always been about characters facing impossible life-and-death choices. Now, fans can face these choices head-on, putting themselves in the world of The Walking Dead–at any spot in the timeline. We’ve seen a lot of stories in The Walking Dead Universe–now it’s time to see the fans’ stories.”
