Mantic teased it earlier this week but The Walking Dead is returning to the tabletop in 2024 with more The Walking Dead: All Out War.
Skybound and Mantic are relaunching the game with new waves of releases and continuing the storyline. The game left off with releases focused on the Whisperers and the Kingdom, so now it’s on to… the Commonwealth!
Mantic said it’s currently “looking at the best way to launch this wave, alongside bringing back the game itself.”
From the announcement, the Commonwealth wave will likely have a heroes pack from the story arc of comics and then a pack of Commonwealth troopers.
But, it’s not just that. There are further waves planned as well now that the license is renewed.
But, it’s not just new releases. Mantic is exploring how to get new players into the game and allow those who missed early waves to get those too.
Pre-orders are expected to go live in early 2024.
Launched in 2016, the game saw numerous releases with “waves” of miniatures that took players through The Walking Dead comic’s story and allowed players to pick and choose who, when, and where they wanted to play. Mantic announced in January 2022 that the game was ending as their license for it had ended at the time.
