Merging the award-winning, smash-hit, indie game The Escapists with the worldwide phenomenon that is The Walking Dead, Team17 have taken the very best of both worlds and are now providing players with the opportunity to play Rick Grimes as he takes on hordes of zombies let loose upon the world. In this unique game, recreated entirely in the charming 8-bit pixel art style of
The Escapists, Rick is in charge of a band of survivors featuring many of the original comic book cast. He must secure the safety of the group by seeking out a safe escape route from each area, and manage several dangerous tasks to keep as many of the group alive as possible.
The game faithfully matches the timeline of the comics and so as the player makes progress in the game they play through locations that mirror the progress of the band of the survivors taken
from the award-winning comic’s epic story.
Below is the new ‘Alexandria’ Trailer for The Escapists: The Walking Dead. The game faithfully matches the timeline and locations of The Walking Dead comics, with Alexandria being a save zone that the survivors visit on the course of their journey. The trailer also exhibits the signature crafting gameplay featured in the original The Escapists.
The Escapists: The Walking Dead is scheduled for a 2015 release on Xbox One and PC
