AMC’s Clayton Neuman Talks New Season 9 Inspired Updates for ‘The Walking Dead: Our World’ Mobile Game
The Walking Dead‘s augmented reality mobile game got a significant upgrade this week, and we were lucky enough to preview it during New York Comic Con alongside Clayton Neuman, VP of Games and Entertainment Applications for AMC.
As of this week, The Walking Dead: Our World mobile game has added all-new weekly content based on the show’s ninth season! Following the season nine premiere on Sunday, and then after each upcoming new episode as well, new and exclusive missions themed after the show’s content will become available. The new missions will also bring about new content including guaranteed TV show characters as rewards for completing the missions, single encounter missions and also larger group encounters (aka. infestations) all for an even greater prize. Neuman told us:
Adding to the fun of an already amazing season of The Walking Dead, fans can now play The Walking Dead: Our World and further immerse themselves into the fandom and the world of the television series. Neunam explains further that the rewards aren’t the only tie-ins to the television series that players will see in the game. He said:
So far, we love the update! Once Monday rolled around, I couldn’t wait to log in and complete my season nine mission. Neuman told us that tying the game in with the series seemed to be something the fans enjoyed in their other mobile game The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, so they hope fans will enjoy this addition to Our World as well. He said:
In addition to the latest upgrades to The Walking Dead: Our World, Neuman also let us in on some top-secret additions they are developing for future releases which will, without a doubt, take this game to a completely new level of awesome. If you’re not playing The Walking Dead: Our World yet now is the time to start because AMC and Next Games have plenty of tricks up their sleeves which will make this the most exciting AR mobile game on the market.
