iOS device owners will get a new game, The Walking Dead: Assault that will debut on Nov. 30 . The game is based on the popular graphic novel by Robert Kirkman.
The game is being developed by Gamagio Ltd., with collaboration from Skybound and Skybound Asia, IGN reported. The story in the game is similar to the first comic in the series where Sheriff Rick Grimes comes to the hospital unaware of how he got there in the first place with the outbreak of the undead. Players will visit the famous locations from the comics' early series. Locations include travelling through Atlanta and campsite that's used by survivors. The setting has been created in 3D art comic visual style.
