The Escapists: The Walking Dead Announced

By MunchMagic1986,
After the unexpected success of The Escapists Trophies, Team 17 has decided to do something really unexpected; they are creating a crossover sequel called The Escapists: The Walking Dead Trophies. Using the gameplay of the original, they have adapted the comic series by Robert Kirkman inside their game, which even includes some recreated comic panels.



Starting the game, you’ll take on the role of iconic protagonist Rick Grimes as he wakes up in the Harrison Memorial Hospital. This first tutorial level matches that very first issue of The Walking Dead comic, and sees Rick encounter his first walkers in the hospital. The levels will then follow the time line of the comics, seeing Rick travel to various locations such as the Greene Family Farm, Meriwether Correctional Facility, Woodbury and Alexandria. In fact, our game spans right up to around issue 83 of the comic!

You’ll get to meet other familiar characters from the hit series along the way including Carl, Lori, Glenn, Hershel, Maggie, Dale, Tyreese, Michonne, Abraham and Gabriel. As Rick, you must take care of your survivors by performing headcounts, and cleaning up the compound to avoid getting overrun with walkers.

Crafting was a big part of The Escapists and is something that will carry over into this new version, with over 70 items ready to be crafted from over 250 different materials — certainly enough to keep you safe from the zombie hordes.



The Escapists: The Walking Dead will release for Playstation 4 on February 16th.
