The Walking Dead is about to get a Pokémon Go-style game
The undead want to usurp Pokemon Go as the king of the augmented reality mobile game with The Walking Dead: Our World.
It’s been over a year since the breakout success of Pokemon Go and regardless of the problems of the past 365 days, Niantic’s mobile game set a new precedent for the augmented reality genre. Before PGO, AR had long been seen as a game gimmick—the Playstation VITA attempted it around the console's launch in 2011 before dropping it completely. Now it seems everyone wants to have a go at it, including developers Next Games with their AMC partnered game, The Walking Dead: Our World.
The Walking Dead: Our World is a location-based augmented reality mobile game for iOS and Android that will have you fighting the walkers on the streets, in the parks, on your sofa, and if you’re a true horror fan, in shopping malls. Just like Pokemon Go, The Walking Dead will have you teaming up and fighting battles in real-world locations to survive the onslaught of enemies.
