The boxed Starter Set for The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game includes a condensed rulebook, pre-generated characters, and the first full-length survival scenario for you to play.
The Walking Dead has always been about characters facing impossible life and death choices. In The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game, you can face these choices head on, putting yourself in the world of The Walking Dead – at any time in the timeline, encountering familiar faces and places and brand-new ones and, making the biggest choice: Who are you going to be? We have seen many stories in The Walking Dead Universe, now it’s time to see yours..
The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game challenges you to enter the unforgiving, post-apocalyptic sandbox and learn how to survive and thrive in this new world order. Pushing the boundaries of the survival genre, each group can tailor their RPG experience to suit their own interests and play style. The core game is written by Nils Hintze (Tales From the Loop RPG, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying) and uses the core D6 version of the acclaimed Year Zero Engine (as seen in ALIEN RPG, Mutant: Year Zero, Forbidden Lands), uniquely adapted for The Walking Dead.
To immerse you in this new extension of The Walking Dead Universe, AMC Networks, Free League, and Genuine Entertainment will also produce a limited Liveplay series, where real players will roll the dice at the game table and play an actual The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game campaign filmed in real-time. Featuring original events pulled from the series’ writers’ room, the Liveplay series will follow new characters who intersect with core story elements and cross paths with a familiar face or two.
