In a surprising yet awesome turn of events, Scopely has partnered with Telltale Games to bring new faces to The Walking Dead: Road To Survival in a special update. The limited time event places characters from Telltale Games‘ The Walking Dead Season 1 into Road to Survival thanks to a partnership with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and Skybound. From mid-December through January 31st, new characters — including survivors Kenny, Clementine and her guardian Lee Everett — will make their way to the game with new appearances every week.
“Working with Robert Kirkman and Skybound in creating characters that expand and enrich The Walking Dead comic universe has always been exciting for us,” said Steve Allison, SVP, Publishing at Telltale Games. “Working with Scopely, the Telltale characters like Lee and Clementine can be rolled into the fold with iconic Walking Dead characters like Rick and The Governor in scenarios possible only under the shared comic universe of Road to Survival.”
Seen as how the mid-season finale is over and the other half is set to air early next year, we hope to see some new content yet again when the TV show picks back up. Until then though, the update is available on the App Store to download and first time players can get the game for free by clicking here.
