FunPlus is bringing the world of The Walking Dead to its mobile zombie strategy game State of Survival due to an upcoming partnership between the developer and the television network, AMC. The update is due to occur on 1st April and will last until October.
When the event begins, characters from The Walking Dead AMC show will appear within State of Survival as playable heroes that you can use to help fight and survive against the zombie hordes. FunPlus has not stated the full list of crossover characters coming to The Walking Dead, but fan favourite appearances should be a given.
“We’re thrilled to partner with AMC and The Walking Dead to bring our two worlds together,” says Chris Petrovic from FunPlus on the collaboration. “Since launching State of Survival in August 2019, it has been our dream to allow players the opportunity to experience The Walking Dead in our game, and we’re excited to be able to deliver that to them.”
“State of Survival and AMC’s The Walking Dead present different takes on the zombie apocalypse, but they also share a lot of common themes so bringing them together was very natural,” says Clayton Neuman from AMC. “What we’ve created allows the best elements of both universes to shine, and we’re excited for the millions of fans and players around the world to experience it.”
The Walking Dead started as a comic book created by Robert Kirkman in 2003, and expanded to television in 2010 when AMC picked it up for an adaptation that has now accumulated 10 seasons and 150 episodes.
The crossover event for The Walking Dead in State of Survival begins on 1st April and will continue until October. You can download the game now from the iOS App Store and the Google Play for Android store. It’s a free to play game with in-app purchases.
