Team 17 has today unveiled a new teaser trailer for its upcoming crossover game, The Escapists: The Walking Dead.
The intriguing indie title takes the critically acclaimed prison break simulator The Escapists and injects it with a lethal dose of the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead, allowing players to take on the role of Rick Grimes as he is charged with protecting a group of survivors from hordes of the undead.
The gameplay of The Escapists comes in because players must secure the safety of their comrades by navigating a safe escape route from each 8-bit pixel-art-styled area, while completing tasks in an attempt to keep all of their fellow survivors alive.
The game matches the timeline of the original Walking Dead comics, with the locations and storylines available mirroring those featured in the franchise. Today’s trailer showcases the Woodbury, GA level, which first appeared in issue 27 of the comic books.
The Escapists: The Walking Dead is due for release soon on Xbox One and Steam.
