'The Walking Dead: Survivors' (ALL) Gets Release Date

by Rainier on April 6, 2021 @ 7:00 a.m. PDT

The Walking Dead: Survivors is a survival game that brings back fan-favorite characters from the Skybound/Image comics and allows players to use these characters to build their town to fend off other players and hordes of walkers.

Survivors are the main characters of The Walking Dead: Survivors. Each has their own attributes and skill set and are broken down by "Combat" and "Development”.  Combat Survivors are responsible for taking part in battles and Development Survivors improving all facets of a town to ensure it’s fully protected. Survivors originate from the comic and this title brings over their likeness, including prominent characters such as Rick, Maya, Vayne, Glenn, Dwight, and many more.

Players will be tasked with building their best town and armies through assigning tasks, building strategic battle plans, building and expanding their bases by exploring new territories. Players must think carefully about the strategy such as what buildings they construct, how they fortify their fences from hordes of walkers and players, which characters they promote in battle, and how they progress their character abilities.

In The Walking Dead: Survivors, there are three types of Fighters: Melee, Sharpshooters, and Cavalry. Each category has ten tiers to upgrade to, which makes every fighter stronger along the way. All Combat Survivors can be trained and promoted to positions of power, making strategy the most important aspect of battle.

Fan-favorite Survivors from the Skybound/Image comics will be playable at launch, each with their own unique roles. Survivors are grouped into two categories as Combat or Development. Players can use these characters to fortify their town against other players and hordes of walkers or explore beyond the barrier and engage in combat against enemies. Some examples of Survivors are below:

  • Rick - A Combat Survivor focused on fighting off walkers. He wields a rifle, an axe and his skills increase damage.
  • Glen - A Combat Survivor focused on defense. He wields a pistol and his skill increases defense.
  • Beta - A Combat Survivor focused on offense. He wields two swords and his skills trigger extra damage done and increased attack.
  • Maggie - A Development Survivor who focuses on production. She wields a pistol and her skills increase production rate and speeds.
  • Hershel - A Development Survivor who is a medic. He wields a rifle and he increases Healing Speed and hospital capacity while reducing healing cost.

Key Features:
