GameMill Entertainment and AMC have announced that their third-person narrative-driven action-adventure title The Walking Dead: Destinies will launch on November 17th for PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, the Xbox Series and Nintendo Switch. In addition, the developers have given us a glimpse of the game’s action as well as some of the critical moments players will encounter in a new gameplay trailer.
As was mentioned when the game was first revealed back in August, Destinies plays out using the multiple choice mechanic of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, only this time you take on the role of Rick Grimes with the ability to carve out your own path through the show’s events. You start out as Rick waking alone in a hospital surrounded by the dead. From there, you assemble allies from over twelve characters from the series, and fight your way through the walker apocalypse across iconic locations from The Walking Dead.
In crucial choice-driven moments, you’ll shape the destiny of your team of characters from the series. Heroes and villains, living and dead – it’s up to you to decide whether to stay the course of history or forge your own path. Along the way, you’ll be slaying hordes of walkers in third-person action with a variety of melee and ranged weapons, including bats, katanas, revolvers, shotguns, and crossbows.
Along with managing your limited resources, you’ll have to scavenge for weapons and ammo, and maximize your party’s abilities to stay alive. That involves defending your camp, rescuing survivors, and fighting through stealth and all-out combat.
Pre-orders are now open via the official site.
