Zen Studios will release The Walking Dead pinball table on August 26. The table will be based on the game of the same name by Telltale Games and The Walking Dead franchise by Robert Kirkman.
The Walking Dead pinball table will launch August 26 on a variety of platforms. And by “variety,” we mean just about every console and handheld platform available. They include Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Wii U, iOS, Android and Amazon.
Zen Studios, creator of the table, has collaborated closely on its creation with Telltale Games. The studios have worked together on the table’s design in particular so it portrays the story and choice-driven gameplay design of The Walking Dead: Season One. But in a pinball experience, of course.
The table will present players with recognizable locations like Clementine’s treehouse and Everett’s pharmacy in Macon, down to the walker-infested streets of Savannah. Players will find throughout the table a retelling of Season One that keeps the drama of Lee and Clementine’s story intact.
The Walking Dead pinball table also presents choice-driven gameplay across each of Season One’s five episodes. In true “story expansion” form, the table will include new story dialogue from the award-winning cast.
Players will be tasked with choosing who lives and who dies in a walker attack, solving problems and raising the group’s morale, hunting down food and supplies, acquiring important tools, and navigating through the herd amid an oncoming walker breach.
The Walking Dead TV show is now in production on its fifth season. It has become the highest-rated basic cable drama of all time. To date, The Walking Dead is the top-rated show on TV among the 18-49 demographic.
