Mantic Announce March To War
Since Mantic launched The Walking Dead: All Out War back in 2016, it’s safe to say it’s been a massive success. Thousands of Walking Dead fans have been playing through the adventures of Rick, as he wakes up in the hospital before trying to find his family and then facing off against the likes of The Governor and Negan.
While All Out War focuses on narrative play and gave players a claustrophobic tale of survival, with Wave Five came a change in the storyline. Following Wave Five, as Rick and the gang settle in Alexandria, the story becomes less of a struggle to exist and more of a battle for domination.
With that in mind, the focus switches from small expeditions to gather supplies to pitched gunfights against other survivors. Of course, the Walkers are still an ever-present threat but now the real conflict is between the well-armed Survivors. We wanted to mirror this change in the comic storyline by giving All Out War players the opportunity to play much bigger games with more survivors, more equipment and, of course, more Walkers.
Obviously, everyone still loves All Out War and Mantic will be releasing more narrative-based expansions down the line but, just like with Here’s Negan: The Board Game, this is a chance to explore a different part of The Walking Dead. And who doesn’t want the opportunity to get even more of their amazing miniatures on the tabletop?!
