AMC, by partnering with Eyes Wide Games and RockYou, has released a new Walking Dead social game for Facebook ahead of the show's third season, which starts in October. Here's the trailer for the game:
The social game lets you complete missions, meet characters from the show, and recruit your Facebook friends to "defend your camp from walkers." If your friends die, they may come back as walkers, by the way.
AMC says the game has an array of missions that will test your survival skills, and that the only way to survive is with a team of allies. So social is indeed a key.
When you're not online, "anything can happen," the game's page notes, so you'll want to play with some friends who are as dedicated to survival as you. Someone has to stay on guard.
Of course, there are plenty of weapons to use in the game, but you have to unlock them.
