The Walking Dead Last Mile release date, news & how to play the game
When is The Walking Dead: Last Mile release date, and what actually is this new addition to Robert Kirkman’s TWD universe? We now know the answers to both of those questions!
It may be the end of the road for the flagship The Walking Dead TV show, but there is plenty of (undead) life in the franchise yet. Fear The Walking Dead is coming back for season 8 – with a surprising returning character – and Tales from The Walking Dead is now in production as well.
Add to that the long awaited Rick Grimes movies, plus the spin-off starring Daryl and Carol set to launch in 2023 and, well, we won’t be short of zombie action any time soon.
And not only is the franchise big in the TV and comics world, but there have been several games based on it over the years as well – the most memorable being the series of story-led titles that came from Telltale Games (which were ultimately finished off by Kirkman’s Skybound company when Telltale hit problems).
Now another game of sorts is on the way. The Walking Dead: Last Mile has been announced by Skybound Games, the gaming wing of Kirkman’s company, although this looks to be more than ‘just’ a game. And Skybound will be teaming up with several companies, including Facebook Gaming, to bring the project lurching to life.
