Mantic Games has announced that Here’s Negan will now be shipping December 3rd. The upside of this slight delay is that if you were after the exclusive Character Cards for The Walking Dead: All Out War, fret not! You have a little extra time to pre-order the game, either through your local retailer or the Mantic Webstore!
Here’s Negan is a co-operative board game for 1 to 5 players, based on The Walking Dead comic-book series. Each player takes the role of a Survivor, recruited by the ruthless Negan. Under Negan’s instructions, the Survivors must battle to clear out a large factory complex to create a safe haven in the brutal wilderness. By scavenging supplies, securing key objectives and fighting the walking dead, the players hope to win Negan’s favour and ultimately become his top lieutenants.
