After the success of Bridge Constructor Portal, it would appear Headup Games has been working on a new branded release for the franchise that's themed around The Walking Dead TV show. Well, the studio recently teamed up with the YouTuber Drae to show off the game in action, and while the commentary is often cringeworthy, the 20-minute video still offers a solid look at how Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead plays. So if you'd like to take an early look, Drae's video is available below the break.
As you can see Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead mostly looks and plays like all of the other Bridge Constructor games in the series, though this time around, you'll create bridges to escape hordes of zombies. So at the very least, the theme suits the puzzle-based franchise. Headup has also released a list of features for the game, which you can read through below.
- AMC’s The Walking Dead meets Bridge Constructor™
- Create elaborate constructions and lethal traps
- A captivating plot featuring new faces as well as iconic characters and vehicles from the series
- Numerous brain-teasing levels and countless brain-eating walkers
- Make use of movable objects and explosives to lure walkers to their doom
- Save your survivors and smash the undead hordes
- Brutally funny walker ragdoll physics.
Sadly details beyond the above list are still light, so we don't what day the game will be released or how it will be monetized. I would hope Headup prices the mobile version of Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead similarly to Bridge Constructor Portal. I would also hope Headup forgoes the online checks found in Bridge Constructor Portal, which makes the game difficult to play if you commute a lot.
What we do know is that Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead will be released on Android, iOS, the Xbox Series X, as well as PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch sometime this year, with a PS5 release arriving later. But like I said earlier, there's no specific release date yet, so we'll all have to bide our time as we wait for more information. Here's hoping Headup can nail down a date soon since the year is almost over.

Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead will land on November 19
Don't you just love it when developers make a big show of announcements that don't actually announce anything useful? I know I do, which is why I'm enthralled to learn four days after the last announcement that Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead will be officially released on November 19. Why Headup didn't throw this date around four days ago when it was sending a mass of PR to numerous outlets, I have no idea, but here we are all the same. While it's comforting to finally know when the game will be released and that this release is only a week away, it would appear that Headup still hasn't bothered to mention how the game will be monetized.
At the very least, the game is now listed on the Play Store for pre-registration. So if you'd like to receive a notification on release day, all you have to do is pre-reg through the Play Store widget at the bottom of the page.
Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead lands on Android for $4.99
As promised, Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead is now available on the Play Store, and you can pick it up for $4.99. This is a premium release, so there are no in-app purchases or advertisements to be seen. More or less, if you've played any of the previous installments in the Bridge Constructor series, you should know what to expect. You'll spend your time building bridges that function as physics-based puzzles, all so you can escape the rambling zombie hordes that are continuously following directly behind. Since the game sports a The Walking Dead theme, you can expect to find a few familiar faces from the TV show, such as Daryl, Michonne, and Eugene, though it's the gameplay that really shines in this release.
So if all of this sounds good to you, you can purchase your copy through the Play Store widget at the bottom of the page.
