The Walking Dead: Destinies
A new title in The Walking Dead line is on the way to alter things with The Walking Dead: Destinies
Just when you thought you had enough of The Walking Dead, we are brought back into the zombie show once more. Here, though, we are not talking about the multiple AMC shows that are still running or about to fire off to the world. No, this is a new title coming from Flux Games that will let us relive the first four seasons of the show that kicked all of this off. Not in a way that will have us needing to play through the story we have seen many times before, but in a way where we can alter it all. We will be able to change the story of the seasons that many claimed were the best of the show. Here we go with the announcement for The Walking Dead: Destinies coming for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC.
Yes, you read some of that correctly. This game will let us relive many different scenes from the first four seasons of The Walking Dead but make big changes to it all. If you did not want Shane to die in the first place, you will be able to change that up. If you thought that The Governor had some good points, you can side with that faction out there. If you thought Carol should have died a few times over, I am hoping we can get a more comic-accurate fate here. All so we can keep The Walking Dead IP rolling and try to give fans what they think they wanted in the first place. Thankfully, too, in a third-person action title and not another narrative QTE game that we have had many times over. Nice to shake things up a bit.
The Walking Dead: Destinies — Announcement
GameMill Entertainment and AMC announced that their new game The Walking Dead: Destinies is coming soon to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. Relive critical moments from Seasons 1-4 of the hit television series AMC’s The Walking Dead in this third-person action-adventure experience where you control the outcome of the story.

Begin your journey as Rick Grimes, waking alone in a hospital surrounded by the dead. Assemble allies and fight your way through the Walker apocalypse across iconic locations from The Walking Dead, including Atlanta, the Greene family farm, the prison, and Woodbury. In crucial choice-driven moments, you’ll forever shape the destiny of your team of characters from the series. Heroes and villains, living and dead – it’s up to you to decide whether to stay the course of history or forge your own path through the world of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead: Destinies is developed by Flux Games and published by GameMill Entertainment.
I know I am excited to see more of what The Walking Dead: Destinies has to offer up, but it does feel like it is going to be hard to let the Butterfly Effect kick in for this one. So many things would change based on some of these choices with some of them leading to vastly different outcomes and locations. Like, I am not even sure how the crew would have managed to make it to certain places without the luck of Rick and his family, let alone if some options would ever truly come about. That is why, I guess, we just need to have faith that these writers have thought well ahead and planned all of this out better than the later seasons of The Walking Dead did. Here is hoping it will blow more minds than expected out there.
How do you feel about reliving the seasons of The Walking Dead in this way and would it have ended way earlier once Rick is removed? How well do you think things will flow based on some choices or will they still be the same things just with different characters in the roles? Can we fully kill off characters we did not want to make it to the future season or will it only be large choices as the trailer indicates here? Walk on down to the comment section and discuss all of that as you so wish to do. We are going to have much more for The Walking Dead: Destinies here on the site, so please keep on checking back in for all of that and much, much more.
