The Play Store recently received a new title for pre-registration, and it's an upcoming Walking Dead game themed around strategic survival-based gameplay. It's called The Walking Dead: Survivors, and it would appear the game has been in the works since at least November 2020, judging by the official Facebook page. Well, as of this weekend, those in the US, Germany, and Russia can pre-register for the title in anticipation of the upcoming launch.
We appreciate an Easter egg every now and then, but what if the egg hatched, became necrotic, and then amputated a limb? If you're a fan of "The Walking Dead" airing on AMC and are watching it through YouTube TV, you should probably pick up on this nice little touch.
Every fan of The Walking Dead has surely imagined what it would be like to encounter a walker in real life. Similarly, if you watch Into the Badlands, you'd probably love to get up close with the flight scenes. Thanks to two new VR apps from TV network AMC, you'll be able to watch both shows as part of a new immersive experience.
After a short beta period The Walking Dead: March to War is officially available on the Play Store. It is a free-to-play survival strategy game that features a beautiful design. While the game's art direction is visually superb, the gameplay is lacking thanks to its liberal use of the typical free-to-play mechanics we are all too accustomed to.
The developer behind the mobile franchises like Batman and Game of Thrones, as well as the popular Minecraft: Story Mode, has just announced a huge sale to help with those back-to-school blues. Telltale has produced some great mobile gaming experiences, and aside from those already mentioned, the sale also includes games like The Wolf Among Us, Guardians of the Galaxy, and several from the Walking Dead series.
Disruptor Beam has a new free-to-play survival game coming up for release soon. It is titled The Walking Dead: March to War, and it's available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store as we speak. Luckily I've gotten my hands on the APK and have tested it out in order to show everyone what can be expected when it is officially released.
Fans of the mega-hit TV adaptation of The Walking Dead seem to be cooling on the series after its latest dramatic antics, but the Telltale adventure game series (based on the comic book source material) is still going strong. After an all-too-brief side story with fan-favorite baddass Michonne, the game is back to its primary storyline with the release of Season 3, "A New Frontier." The first episode is now available in the Play Store for $5.
Considering the shortness of February and the general malaise that is the entertainment industry between January and March, it's impressive that Android received so many high-profile games during the month. And indeed we did: JRPG fans have no less than three new classics to check out, there's a new chapter of The Walking Dead for horror fans, and plenty of titles for more causal players to try. Below in no particular order, you'll find our picks for the seven best new Android games of February, plus a few honorable mentions.
Confession: I haven't touched The Walking Dead franchise since the end of season one of the TV show - there's only so much zombie stuff I can handle. But even so, I know that Michonne (pronounced "Miss-shown") is a fan-favorite badass in both the comic books and the show. TellTale Games, always eager to please with its growing collection of licensed episodic adventure games, is giving those fans what they want with a Michonne mini-series. Episode one is available right now in the Play Store.
Michonne is a kick-ass lady who strides through the undead landscape crushing zombie skulls beneath her feet.
