Explore an unforgiving, post-apocalyptic world, where you must learn to survive. Together. Free League Publishing today revealed that the world of the dead is closing in on us all – the official The Walking Dead Universe RPG will arrive on November 28. The anticipated RPG raised close to $600k and unlocked 18 stretch goals during the successful crowdfunding campaign.
In The Walking Dead Universe RPG, the player characters must not only hone their physical skills, but deeply explore who they truly are – what drives them to go on, what they consider worth fighting for, and what they’re capable of doing, in the best and worst of times.
Enter the World of the Dead! The Walking Dead Universe RPG Set to be Released on November 28
In The Walking Dead Universe RPG, you will play as people struggling to survive in a hostile world. Exceptional challenges can appear from anywhere – from the lack of essential supplies, from conflicts brewing within the group, from hidden construction flaws in your safe haven, or from approaching walkers hungering for your flesh.
There are two ways to play the game – Campaign Mode and Survival Mode:
– In Campaign Mode, it is your goals and choices, and the result of your group efforts, that create the storyline.
– In Survival Mode, you are faced with a dangerous situation that needs to be handled immediately. Survival Mode scenarios often feature locations and characters from the TV series.
Expect the stress and stakes to be high. The rules of The Walking Dead Universe RPG are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in Free League´s award-winning games such as the ALIEN RPG, Blade Runner RPG, Tales From the Loop RPG, Mutant: Year Zero and Forbidden Lands, but uniquely tailored for The Walking Dead Universe.
The Walking Dead Universe RPG is a co-production between AMC Networks and the award-winning tabletop publisher. The Free League team has been working closely with key forces behind the franchise, including Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead Universe Scott M. Gimple. The RPG series will introduce new story elements while drawing inspiration from the current series and upcoming spin-offs.
