Game Insight’s Mobile FPS Gods of Boom to Deliver a Themed Collaboration with AMC’s The Walking Dead Timed to the Mid-Season Premiere of Season 10.
To celebrate the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead Season 10 this Sunday, February 23 on AMC, the network and Game Insight’s mobile game Gods of Boom are releasing a TWD-themed update. This unique integration will allow players to experience the action and excitement of GOB’s mobile first-person shooter gameplay in the setting of The Walking Dead universe.
Starting today, players will fight their way through a seemingly abandoned settlement, slaying herds of walkers as well as Whisperers — the formidable faction from the current season of the series. In-mission, players can also arm themselves with iconic weapons from the TV show, like Daryl’s trusty crossbow, Rick’s revolver and Negan’s infamous barbed-wire bat, “Lucille.”
What’s more, and for the first time ever, Gods of Boom will be adding a new, limited-time-only, full character skin to the game: walker hunter extraordinaire Daryl Dixon, as portrayed by Norman Reedus, whose likeness has been painstakingly recreated for the game.
A Truly Authentic The Walking Dead Experience:
Gods of Boom, the winner of several mobile game awards, is known for its fun, engaging, and tactical gameplay. Combining this with the AMC series’ thrilling atmosphere results in a unique and visceral experience for players; that of prowling the walker-filled streets of a ruined city, vigilant against threats both alive and dead.
During the development of the update, Game Insight and AMC worked closely on every aspect of the experience, from art and soundscape to gameplay, to ensure the atmosphere of the series carries through. The goal was to thoroughly satisfy both die-hard The Walking Dead fans and existing Gods of Boom players who may be new to the series.
The Walking Dead-themed season will be available in Gods of Boom from February 20 through March 31. The game is free to play and available in most languages for download on Apple’s App Store and Google Play. Fans can learn more about Gods of Boom and the new themed season on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
