It looks like we were right and there is indeed going to be a The Walking Dead: All Out War coming out from (you guessed it) Mantic Games! They make some great zombies so it certainly makes sense that they would be the ones to pick up the license for this property.
Here’s the official press release from Mantic Games…
“The Walking Dead: All Out War will be set in the engaging and immersive post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead comic series. Having the comic license gives us far more freedom to reproduce from all the rich and evocative artwork, and over 149 issues of the comics.
This offered the biggest choice of factions and characters – in fact the widest scope possible to explore the setting and heroes. Finally the comic license also gives us direct access to the Skybound team, and insight into the world by the people who actually created it! We will bring the pages to life with fantastic models that will cry out to be painted, slick game play and it’ll all be part of an awesomely fun gaming experience.”
Through our Tips Off System (which you can use yourself to send us news that you might think we want to know about!) we received these two images of some rather ace artwork and some models which matched them exceptionally well. Do we have a new Zombie game coming to the tabletop soon?
First off this is the artwork we had through with the mysterious title of ‘Mohawk Zombie’. Once we saw this however we had to start thinking about the art style and we believe there could be a new The Walking Dead game on the way from someone!
Then this image was also attached to the Tip Off which shows the same Mohawk Zombie in model form. Considering the success of The Walking Dead on television it would make sense for there to be a tabletop game coming in the future. We’ve seen board games and card games but a full on miniatures game would be awesome.
If this is the case (and not just some random zombies) we could be seeing great multi-part zombie kits (it looks 28mm too!) and ones for survivors too. I would really love to see Clem and Lee bought to life from The Walking Dead Telltale Game.
Considering the art style what do you think the game could be AND who is going to be behind it?
