Fans of hit TV series The Walking Dead have been eagerly awaiting the chance to get their hands on the upcoming The Walking Dead: Our World augmented reality (AR) app since it was announced by developer Next Games earlier this year. Attendees at the famous New York Comic Con may soon get the chance.
The Walking Dead: Our World was inspired by the phenomenally successful Pokemon Go, following a similar structure of location-based gameplay with AR elements, though with a considerably darker take on the concept.
Next Games have teamed up with Lionsgate to showcase The Walking Dead: Our World, which will demo to the public for the first time at New York Comic Con. Fans will be able to get their hands on the title, which is planned to feature a mixture of objects and characters from the TV show whilst taking advantage of features present in the real world.
Not much information is currently available on exactly how The Walking Dead: Our World will play, so Comic Con attendees who make it to the Lionsgate booth will be getting a surprise as they get the world’s first look at the app.
Next Games previously worked on The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, and as part of the company’s appearance at the Lionsgate booth, representatives will be talking about how they integrated season 8 of The Walking Dead TV show into the videogame story.
New York Comic Con will take place from 5th-8th October, 2017 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Centre in New York City. Next Games will be appearing at the Lionsgate booth, #210.
VRFocus will bring you further information on The Walking Dead: Our World as it becomes available.
