Team 17 has today announced the upcoming release of a fairly interesting crossover: The Escapists Walking Dead. A game which blends Mouldy Toof’s pixelated prison escape game with the comic book world by Robert Kirkman and it’s coming to Xbox One and PC in late Summer.
IGN announced the news today which comes in conjunction with Skybound Entertainment and puts players in control of Rick Grimes as he tries to rescue a number of familiar characters from the series looking for a safe escape route from each area. Players must fend off zombie hordes and keep as many of the cast alive as possible as they escape.
According to IGN, the game will stay faithful to the timeline of the comics and as players progress they’ll move through familiar locations found in the comic books.
A trailer for the game can be seen over on IGN. The game is set to launch on PC and Xbox One “late summer” and will see players face tougher escapes with the addition of Zombies.
