Walking Dead Universe RPG Launches Kickstarter March 14
Free League announced last November they were developing an RPG around the AMC Walking Dead universe, literally calling it Walking Dead Universe RPG. The day has now come for the curtains to be raised on the whole thing — the Kickstarter now has a release date and lots of new info about the TTRPG has been released with it.
To make this project authentic, Free League worked with Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple and Head of AMC Networks Publishing Mike Zagari to pull in material from all established corners of TWD, as well as introduce new areas no one’s seen yet. There is, of course, a lot at this point: the ten seasons of the main series, the spinoffs that have aired and the ones that have yet to appear. The core rulebook will be a large one.
The game will be directed by Free League co-founders Tomas Härenstam (ALIEN RPG, Blade Runner RPG) and Mattias Johnsson Haake (Symbaroum), with Nils Hintze (Tales from the Loop RPG, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying) as lead writer, Gustaf Ekelund (Twilight: 2000) and Martin Grip (ALIEN RPG, Blade Runner RPG) as lead artists, and Genuine Entertainment’s Joe LeFavi (ALIEN RPG, Blade Runner RPG, Dune, The Dragon Prince) as producer and brand manager on the game series.
When the campaign for the Walking Dead Universe RPG launches next month, one of the prize tiers will be free access to the PDF of the rulebook, a full six months before its intended physical release. More details will come out March 14.
