Drawing inspiration from AMC’s “The Walking Dead” series, this action-adventure game will revolve around the narrative from seasons 1 to 4. Uniquely, this 3rd person title allows players to control and alter the storyline diverging from the series’ original trajectory. In an immersive twist, players can choose to save the antagonist or even eliminate the protagonist. The stakes are high, and every decision matters.
Players will step into the shoes of Rick Grimes, awakening from a coma to a world forever altered. Locations like Atlanta, the Greene farm, the prison, and Woodbury will be available for exploration. To tackle the looming threats, weapons ranging from revolvers to katanas and shotguns will be at players’ disposal. Additionally, a management aspect will be woven into gameplay, emphasizing the importance of gathering resources, fortifying camps, and maintaining supplies to ensure survival in the post-apocalyptic setting.
With the opportunity to form your own squad, “The Walking Dead: Destinies” will feature over 15 characters from the AMC series. Some notable names include:
- Rick Grimes
- Shane Walsh
- Daryl Dixon
- Carol Peletier
- Carl Grimes
- Lori Grimes
- Glenn Rhee

Ensuring a wide reach, “The Walking Dead: Destinies” is set to be a multi-platform game. It will be accessible on PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and for those with older generation consoles, on PS4 and Xbox One.
Mark your calendars for a tentative release date of November 14, 2023. Nonetheless, fans can be certain of a fall 2023 release. The game will be priced at 49.99 euros in France and 49.99 US dollars across all platforms.
