fear_walking_School_HallwayA new Fear the Walking Dead game has been released for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Available worldwide from today, Fear the Walking Dead: Dead Run has been released to coincide with the premiere of the show’s second season.

In it the free game puts players in the shoes of their favourite characters from the show as they try to escape a devastated Los Angeles and the Infected hordes that have overrun the city.  

Gameplay takes place across familiar landscapes including an abandoned church, a high school, and the local sports arena. 

The game features over 40 weapons and special episode levels that deliver storylines paralleling the events of the TV series.

“We wanted to launch the game in a unique and exciting way that honored the incredible show on which it’s based. The game is both thrilling and visually-appealing as players try to survive the apocalyptic fall of Los Angeles,” said Mac McKean, SVP of Digital Media for AMC and SundanceTV.

“We’re all huge fans of ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ and it’s been great working with AMC to bring this game to the fans,” said Steve Escalante, GM and founder of Versus Evil.

“Our goal from the beginning was to create a fun, accessible experience that stayed true to the energy of the show. 

“We hope fans enjoy playing as their favorite show characters and competing with their friends in a world falling apart.”

In the UK AMC is available exclusively from BT.
