Mantic Games have now launched their The Walking Dead: All Out War Kickstarter allowing you to fight out a battle for survival between rival groups and hordes of zombies. Find out more about the campaign and the miniatures below…
There seems to be a lot inside this box already and they’ve got plans for expansions right out of the gate which add new survivors to the experience.
What’s The Game About?
You will be playing as teams of survivors made out of popular characters from the comic books in a scrap for resources. For example here we have Rick Grimes who is one of the main characters.
Each of the characters gets their own plastic miniature and a statistics card.
You will also have access to a whole bunch of gear which will help you take on the zombie hordes who are all controlled by an A.I system which makes them go after the flesh bags near by. They can be effected by other factors too though.
You also have the necessary locations and terrain on which to fight out your scuffles. You will have paper mats to lay out on the tabletop and then small cardboard terrain pieces which act as barricades and more.
This all looks like it’s going to be a pretty stand up zombie game with what appears to be some very nice quality components. The plastic miniatures are looking great for both the characters and the zombies and they have plenty of plans for additional content.
The first two targets, which people are already close to unlocking are for some additional Loot Markers and another character with Shane.
I can imagine the Mantic audience and those obsessed with The Walking Dead are going to be getting stuck into this campaign.
What do you think of the campaign as it begins?
