The Walking Dead Experience Shaped and Driven by the Audience Begins Climactic Final Month Exclusively on Facebook Watch and Facebook Gaming
October 17, 2022 – LOS ANGELES, CA and NEW YORK, NY – Skybound Entertainment and Genvid Entertainment announced today that the Facebook exclusive The Walking Dead™: Last Mile (TWD:LM) Act Three launched today. The groundbreaking The Walking Dead experience has reached its final month. With new story content that unfolds daily and key plot decisions being impacted by the audience, the time has arrived for the final stand in Prosper Landing. TWD:LM is the first-ever entertainment experience to run live across both Facebook Watch and Facebook Gaming.
In Act Two, the brewing conflict between the Plant and the Village spilled over into violence. When Sara’s dogs went missing, she marched on the Village demanding them back, unaware that Tara had let them go. Fed up that the Plant Workers care more about dogs than her son, Marlena was pushed too far and the first shot was fired. Villagers were killed and the Plant Workers were imprisoned. A trial was held to determine the fate of the Plant Workers, but it only made things worse and Abe found himself imprisoned in the Growhouse along with the Plant Workers. Meanwhile, Kate and her hunters discovered the herd thawed from the ice and headed toward the Village! Unable to enact Abe’s plan, Kate makes a risky decision to sneak through the herd in disguise to warn the Village and only time will determine if she has survived.
With the herd on the horizon and tensions at an all-time high, both communities will have to make choices to overcome their differences if they want to survive. In the Village, disaster strikes even before the herd arrives, leaving leadership in shambles and more death in its wake. At the Plant, Tara and Ladi’s relationship crumbles as Glacier Point appears to be near ready to turn on. They both deal with loss as the pressure of trying to save the community falls on their shoulders.
TWD:LM has also seen a number of improvements to the overall experience and new features added for Act Three, including:
Survival Mode: In the continually updated Survival mode, players are able to participate in more rewards with the escalating threat of death by rolling random mission objectives and mission conditions. The greater the risk, the greater the reward.
New Mini-Game: Grave Digging. As the body count increases, players can engage in this additional activity.
In Memoriam: Remembering the survivors that were lost on their journeys.
Faction Choices: Understanding the importance of choosing between the Village and Plant factions and contributing to their well being.
Spring Maps: New Main, Village, and Plant Maps
