Using fan-fave characters like Rick, Maya, Michonne, Ezekiel, Glenn, and Vayne from the source material, you build and improve your town to fend off hordes of the undead, along with boosting your characters’ attributes and unique skill sets to make sure you have the best fighting chance out there. Herein lies the strategic component of the survival game, as you assign the tasks you believe will benefit you the most. Do you boost your armies first, or do you focus on expanding your base to explore new territories into the unknown? Which buildings should you construct, and how do you fortify your defenses to ensure your survival? Community management also involves gathering supplies, farming, training, and recruiting new heroes to join your camp. Is anyone in need of medical attention? Are you running low on supplies? How about the integrity of your walls? Remember to make the most of your Survivors’ unique skills to keep your settlement afloat and to emerge from settlement sieges unscathed – you not only have to keep walkers out, but you also need to make sure that Negan and his clan steers clear of your territories for good. Should you build defensive towers or place obstacles to keep unwelcome threats out?
Apart from teaming up to form clans and exploring new areas, you can unlock new locations, resources, and even new characters as you set out and discover more of your own settlement, all set in the beloved universe of the wildly popular comic book series from Image Comics.
As for the combat system in The Walking Dead: Survivors, you can take your pick among three types of Fighters, namely, Melee, Sharpshooters, and Cavalry.
