The Walking Dead: No Man's Land has been a successful title on mobile platforms for over a year, however up until now, it's been a stand alone experience, not involved in the series it's based on. However, with the new season of The Walking Dead on TV, that all changes. Beginning today, and continuing every Monday during The Walking Dead's TV season, No Man's Land will be releasing new content that is directly related to the events from Sunday night's episode.
This morning, Next Games and AMC announced that the official mobile game of The Walking Dead TV series will now begin to include aspects from the series itself. This will include the use of a team of characters from the series, as well as missions based on what the group gets up to on the show. The trailer also promises new characters and weapons that will be unlocked throughout the season. One has to assume that this may also mean that you could lose characters as the game progresses as well. If a character dies in the show, as has happened from time to time, although, that won't be the case. If you unlock a character in the game, they'll be available going forward, even if they get eaten by something on the show.
While The Walking Dead has been prime material for some great video game adaptations, most of the games have been set in the world created by Robert Kirkman's zombie apocalypse, without actually dealing with the same stories that he created in the comic book, which were then adapted into the television series. The Walking Dead: No Man's Land now not only will give you the ability to play through events from the series, and you won't even need to wait to do it.
In addition to the game content, No Man's Land also promises additional special content including bonus themes and behind-the-scenes video that will be unlockable within the game.
Those who are already playing and enjoying The Walking Dead: No Man's Land will certainly appreciate the next several weeks of new content. Mobile games, really need new gameplay on a regular basis in order to keep fans interested and knowing that something new is coming every week will likely keep fans opening up the game Monday morning in order to see how events of the new episode have impacted their game.
One would expect that the vast majority of players were already fans of The Walking Dead TV series, but it will be interesting to see if even more viewers give the game a try due to the connection it will now have with one of their favorite shows.
