The previously announced mobile game based on the smash-hit franchise The Walking Dead, The Walking Dead: Survivors, now has an official launch date. The new strategy-based, tower defense game will be hitting iOS and Android devices on April 12.
Skybound Entertainment and Elex Technology confirmed the news this week. Currently, the game has 1.5 million pre-registrations. Also, Elex is promising that the game will feature 80+ of the iconic characters from the original comic series that inspired the game. Legacy characters for the title include Rick Grimes, Herschel Greene and Glenn Rhee.
