Players must work together to complete objectives and escape, kicking off with no resources and a horde of walkers baying for blood… although that "won't be the only threat they will have to face in rural Canada", the team teases.

"While these survivors struggle to escape, incognito 'traitors' lurk among them, plotting to do everything in their power to delay repairs, and prevent anyone from leaving. As evidence of their sabotage becomes apparent, paranoia and accusations threaten to tear the survivors apart as they desperately work towards escaping."

"We're tremendously excited to unveil this latest The Walking Dead experience that fully immerses players with a fresh and unique take on social deception gameplay," said Robert Kirkman, chief creative director of Skybound Entertainment and creator of The Walking Dead.

"Partnering with Other Ocean Interactive, true innovators in this game genre, will allow players to experience hordes of deceit and distrust as they struggle to work together to survive and escape."

Good news, Zombie fans – two of the genre's biggest IPs, Dying Light and The Walking Dead, recently announced that they are partnering up for a "thrilling" crossover event.
