The Walking Dead: Destinies is a third-person narrative-driven adventure game, and it's coming to PlayStation platforms on 17th November. It has an intriguing pitch: players can explore story paths that AMC's adaptation didn't, allowing players to influence the action.
It's looking a bit shaky, and frankly, that's part of the reason for our interest, as it's published by the unfortunately-named GameMill Entertainment, the folks responsible for "Gollum-like" Skull Island: Rise of Kong (a strong contender for the Worst Game of 2023 title). The Walking Dead: Destinies is going for a choice-based narrative structure, something famously difficult to pull off, so we can't help but be fascinated to see how this one fares.
The game's synopsis reads: "Begin your journey as Rick Grimes, waking alone in a hospital surrounded by the dead. Assemble allies and fight your way through the walker apocalypse across iconic locations from The Walking Dead, including Atlanta, the Greene family farm, the prison, and Woodbury. In crucial choice-driven moments, you’ll forever shape the destiny of your team of characters from the series. Heroes and villains, living and dead."
