The Walking Dead Facebook Game Coming Next Month

Facebook is about to be invaded by zombies. Eyes Wide Games, AMC, and Rock You have teamed up to create a social based on The Walking Dead and it'll be arriving next month.

Your objective in The Walking Dead Social Game is to stay alive. You and your Facebook friends must establish a camp and defend it from the Walkers (i.e. zombies). You'll scavenge resources, complete missions, and even meet characters from the TV show. Screenshots are below.

"AMC's The Walking Dead Social Game is a next generation game for social networks," Eye Wides Games CEO Stephen Griffin told G4. "It's got deep playability. It's got drama, and it's still approachable for the casual audience. However, if you're a gamer and you've been looking for a deeper game to play and to experience on social networks then this is it."

This is the second video game tie-in announced for The Walking Dead. Telltale Games is creating an episodic adventure game based on the comics. The first episode is expecting this spring.

You can sign up for the Walking Dead Social Game by liking its fan page. You'll be notified when it launches in April.
