Build Bridges for Survival in Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead

Two series I can honestly say I never expected to join forces: Bridge Constructor and The Walking Dead. As announced during GamesCom last weekend, Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead adds the popular licensed zombie series to the next game in the physics building series by German developer Headup.

The mash-up draws specifically from the TV show adaptation of the comic book, including the likenesses of several key characters. Headup hasn’t revealed any gameplay footage, but you can check out the rather goofy live-action trailer above.

Here’s the official description from the press release:

Join a group of survivors as they fight against hordes of undead walkers and a hostile human community. Build bridges and other constructions through bleak landscapes and ruined structures. Team up with fan-favorite characters like Daryl, Michonne and Eugene, and create safe passage for iconic vehicles from the series.

Use movable level objects, explosives and baits to your advantage as you lure walkers into lethal traps and guide your survivors to safety. Enjoy the physics-based frenzy and ragdoll animations as walkers succumb to the forces of gravity.

Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead is due to release later this year on PC, mobile, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One, as well as next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Bridge Constructor is no stranger to using other licenses, including 2017’s excellent Bridge Constructor Portal.
