If 2016 had you chasing Squirtles through your office bathroom, there’s about to be a new augmented reality game in your life. It’s called The Walking Dead: Our World, and Apple announced that it’s slated to launch for iOs and Android “soon.”
Like Pokémon Go before it, the Walking Dead game will fill your day-to-day surroundings with surprise elements from the characters’ universe. AMC says the game “will enable players to fully immerse themselves into the action of the hit TV show by blending digital objects, such as characters and other game elements, with the players’ own environment.”
As the Verge points out, the trailer doesn’t show us any direct gameplay, so we still don’t know for sure what a gaming experience might look like. Instead, we see players fighting off the undead with real weapons in places like the grocery store, the park, and your meemaw’s retirement community. There are also reportedly “virtual versions” of some of the popular Walking Dead characters, like Rick, Daryl, and Michonne, who will come to help you in battle.
A release date has not been announced.
