Other Ocean, the game developer behind one of the most popular Games with Gold
titles this year, has announced and briefly detailed new content that will be making its way to #IDARB
Other Ocean and Skybound Games have been celebrating two very popular and loved comic series, The Walking Dead
, from Robert Kirkman. As a result of such appreciation for Robert's work, a new add-on pack has been confirmed for #IDARB
that will included arenas, teams, hashbombs, theme music and plenty more that is all inspired from the two comic series. Mike Mika, Other Ocean director of development and creator of the game, is pretty excited with the new partnership:
We’re very excited to be partnered with Skybound for our first digital content offering. The team at our studio loves comics, and we are really excited to be working in these two rich universes. The Walking Dead and Invincible have given us great material from which to bring new and unique experiences to #IDARB. We think fans of both the comics and the game are really going to enjoy this.
Dan Murray, President of Skybound Games, is pleased with the news and is excited for the creative future of the title:
We love how #IDARB engaged fans to contribute to the design and enabled spectators to interact during gameplay. Other Ocean is bursting with creativity and we are thrilled to expand #IDARB arenas with Invincible and The Walking Dead content. This is our first step into esports and we look forward to working with the team for many seasons to come!
Here's what the add-on pack will include:
• Two all new arenas: an Invincible and a The Walking Dead Arena. Each arena adds new gameplay elements in the theme of the respective comic. (Walkers!)
• All new The Walking Dead and Invincible teams, half-time games, and hashbombs!
• New announcer calls, theme music and sound effects specific to each new arena.
If you happen to reside in sunny San Diego and will be attending this year's Comic Con event, be sure to check out the "playable premiere" in the game's pavilion of Skybound's Walker Stalker Fan Fest on July 10th and July 11th at Petco Park. Live gameplay will also be premiered to the world via Skybound's Twitch
channel as part of the Walking Dead
program on Twitch's front page on July 11th.
The DLC pack for #IDARB
is currently without a release date or price but more details will be revealed "later this summer".
