New content has been announced for “The Walking Dead” augmented reality mobile game. There will be new missions for the players, and these missions will tie into the upcoming season 9. The additional content should make the whole zombie fighting experience exciting for the fans of the franchise.

According to a press release by AMC and Next Games, new and exclusive missions will be launched each week starting from the premiere episode of season 9. The content will be available after each episode airs with the theme of the episode. Players will be guaranteed TV characters after completing these missions as rewards.

The additional content will be in the form of single-encounter missions and larger group encounter missions that will be known as infestations. Players can get these missions every Monday on a weekly basis.

There is more good news! Along with the additional game content, AMC and Next Games have roped in some of the cast members of the TV series, both current and former, to make a few short videos. One of these shorts [see below] shows Michael Cudlitz (Abraham Ford). The video series is titled “Life after The Walking Dead.”

“We are very excited to bring the show and the mobile game together with the exclusive missions in ‘The Walking Dead: Our World.’ For the duration of the season, fans can tune in to watch the show, and play all new Season 9-themed missions every week,” said Saara Bergström, CMO, Next Games in a press release statement.

“The AMC Games team can’t wait for fans to see what lies in store for their favorite characters when Season 9 of ‘The Walking Dead’ debuts this Sunday. We’ve worked with Next Games to weave upcoming events from the show into the design of the game, giving our fans a unique new platform to interact with the ‘The Walking Dead’ universe," said Clayton Neuman, VP of Games for AMC.
