Only good things happen when nerd worlds collide! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Magic the Gathering announced a special edition of the card strategy game featuring AMC’s The Walking Dead and it will debut October 4th!
The Walking Dead set will be available for a limited time only. The game itself includes premium cards that displays the work of different artists, portrays several classic Walking Dead characters, and features distinctive gameplay.
Clayton Neuman, AMC Networks VP of games and entertainment, gives more details on the crossover. “Each of the cards have mechanics that are inspired by either the characters or the elements of The Walking Dead universe that they represent. And these mechanics are brand new to the world of Magic.“
Mark Heggen, product architect for the game’s publisher Wizards of the Coast, mentions this is the first time new cards have been developed for a concept outside of the normal Magic the Gathering World. The new game comes out on the same day of The Walking Dead: The World Beyond’s debut on AMC!
