Default Mantic Games announce ‘The Walking Dead Miniatures Game’

Mantic have announced that they will be making ‘The Walking Dead Miniatures Game’, titled ‘All OUT WAR’, under license from Skybound Entertainment.

Sounds good, I'm a big fan of the tv series so looking forward to this. Some of the models could be awesome if they get them right.

Nice! Show's great, hopefully the game is more than just sweet minis.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Also a big fan of the show, so I'll be interested in this. I wonder how it'll stack up against zombiecide.

A bit more info has came out:

“The Walking Dead is overflowing with tension, drama and atmosphere,” said Mantic CEO Ronnie Renton. “It provides a deep well of exciting content around which to design immersive, fast-paced games which will let players step into the roles of key characters from their favorite comic book.”

“We’re excited to be partnering with Mantic,” said Robert Kirkman, CEO of Skybound. “This game will introduce our fans to a whole new way of experiencing the world of The Walking Dead.”

Set to release towards the end of 2016, The Walking Dead Miniatures Game will be a tactical, two-player game set in the walker-strewn Atlanta cityscape, with each player controlling a small band of human survivors vying to achieve dominance. It can also be played solo thanks to an AI system developed specifically for this game to ensure walker behaviour is menacingly authentic.

Featuring stunningly detailed plastic miniatures that capture comic accurate likenesses and poses, the gameplay will recreate the desperate struggle for survival that makes the series so popular.

With a target price of £35/$50 the core game will feature Rick, Carl and other heroes and villains ripped straight from the pages of the hit comic book, plus a host of walkers, a selection of scenarios and everything else needed to play. A series of expansions are scheduled for release in the months following the launch, introducing additional fan-favorite characters such as Shane, Michonne and Glenn.

“For us, part of the greatness of The Walking Dead is the tough decisions that must be made to keep your group alive against overwhelming odds,” added Ronnie. “How would you handle the kind of crazy situations Rick and his crew were so often faced with?”

The target price of £35/$50 sounds good. I like the idea of rival gangs fighting it out. A story driven game would be excellent.

@Kharn The Complainer . Looks like Coral will be in the core set.
