The Escapists The Walking Dead is the exact thing that will make the overlap of a Venn diagram featuring a. people who love The Escpaists, and b. people who love The Walking Dead, whoop with glee.
Team17 have collaborated with Skybound Entertainment, the company founded by the creator of The Walking Dead comic series Robert Kirkman, to allow players to experience the compelling story of Rick Grimes and the original comic book cast via the much-loved gameplay of The Escapists.
Playing as Rick, you’ll be tasked with not only protecting the group of survivors by seeking out safe escape routes from locations taken right from the comics but also contending with dangerous tasks to keep as many of the group alive as possible. The game follows the same timeline as the hit series and you’re escapes will take you through the award-winning story (and out of the reach of those shuffling walkers).
The Escapists The Walking Dead doesn’t have a specific date you can count down to just yet, with a general release window of 2015. We’re particularly excited for this and, if we could, would teleport ourselves to the Walker Stalker Fan Fest in Petco Park, San Diego, California, for the global debut of the game. If you happen to be planning a visit the Fan Fest, taking place during the 10th and 11th of July, you’ll be able to go hands-on with gameplay of Rick in the Harrison Memorial Hospital level.
