It was hinted at by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman last year, but for the final season of Telltale’s episodic adventure game The Walking Dead, we finally have a crossover!
Scopely (the creators of the mobile game The Walking Dead: Road to Survival) and Telltale Games have announced that today, players who download The Walking Dead: Road to Survival “will embark on a new interactive narrative adventure that spans the stories of three powerful survivors that fans will recognize from Telltale Games’ critically acclaimed game series.”
The crossover event runs through mid-August, where players will be able to play through never-before-seen storylines (called “Roadmaps” in Road to Survival) inspired by the events of The Walking Dead: The Final Season. Three new playable characters from the Telltale Games series will join the fight in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival. Players will also be able to win Telltale-themed rewards by fighting in select in-game tournaments, running from July 17th through mid-August.
Yeah, it’s not quite the comic crossover that Kirkman originally envisioned with Telltale’s series, but it’s still pretty cool. You can grab Road to Survival on the iTunes store and Google Play. The Walking Dead: The Final Season will launch on August 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
