Mantic Games has acquired exclusive rights to produce miniatures games set in The Walking Dead comic universe in a new agreement with Skybound Entertainment.

The Walking Dead Miniatures Game will be a two-player tactical survival game, with each player controlling a faction of humans vying for control of Atlanta. In addition to the two-player game, an AI system allows for solo play, designed to make the zombie behavior both challenging and consistent with that of the comics. The game includes detailed plastic miniatures featuring popular characters like Rick and Carl. Expansions are planned in the months following the initial game release featuring favorite characters such as Michonne and Glenn.

The Walking Dead Miniatures Game is scheduled for a Q4 2016 release. MSRP is $50.00.

Mantic Games recently announced an expansion to their miniatures game Kings of War titled Forces of the Abyss Mega Force, due out in February (see "The Abyss Erupts into 'Kings of War'"). The Walking Dead continues to be popular, and is was the top selling title from Image Comics  in November (see "Top 300 Comics Actual—November 2015").
