The Escapists: The Walking Dead will infect PC, Xbox One later this year

Prison escape strategy game The Escapists proved to be pretty popular for Team 17, and the developers have responded by expanding the game with a series of donwloadable content. Now, the UK-based team is going back inside with a sequel/spinoff based on The Walking Dead, because by law every game franchise eventually has to add zombies.

The Escapists: The Walking Dead looks to be completely different than anything Team17 has done before. Whereas the original game required strategic planning to break out of a modern prison, this time around players will experience a more linear escape situation, along with a recurring narrative, in a hospital.

If you’re anything like me, you’re just disappointed it doesn’t have anything to do with the excellent Telltale series. An 8-bit Rick Grimes leading a group to safety will have to do.

The Escapists: The Walking Dead will arrive on PC and Xbox One later this year. But interested fans can try it out this weekend (July 10 and 11) at the Walker Stalker Fan Fest, which will take place at Petco Park in San Diego.
