The Walking Dead: Our World puts its players smack in the middle of a global zombie apocalypse. The mobile game further expands the universe of AMC’s The Walking Dead through the use of augmented reality. Players complete missions (either solo or by competing in weekly missions alongside their friends) to find supplies, rescue fellow survivors and battle hordes of zombies right in their own neighborhoods. Each mission is completed alongside their favorite heroes from the TV series, including Daryl, Michonne and Rick either from the comfort of the players’ own home or by traveling to famous landmarks Statue of Liberty, the London Eye, and Burj Khalifa.
With all that The Walking Dead: Our World has in store for season 9, you won’t want to miss playing this game.
