Well it seems that not content with their own IP Mantic Games have gone and got themselves another licence.
The Walking Dead, which apparently was a comic before it was a TV show, who would have known that.
The Walking Dead: All Out War will be set in the engaging and immersive post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead comic series. Having the comic license gives Mantic far more freedom to reproduce from all the rich and evocative artwork, and over 149 issues of the comics. This offered the biggest choice of factions and characters – in fact the widest scope possible to explore the setting and heroes.
Also the comic license also gives them direct access to the Skybound team, and insight into the world by the people who actually created it! mantic are aiming to bring the pages to life with fantastic models that will cry out to be painted, slick game play and it’ll all be part of an awesomely fun gaming experience.
Now a few things to note here, the minis already look fantastic, also I have managed to chat to one of the guys who got to see this really early on. He was quite impressed by the game in its early stages so hopefully time has improved it.
After the Mars Attack IP I am surprised that Mantic are taking on another, but with The Walking Dead being a lot more current I can’t really see this one being a failure.
