The Walking Dead: Destinies Character Roster Guide

The Walking Dead video game lets you play as Rick Grimes — or k*ll him, and change the outcome of the TV series.

What would you do if you could control the outcome of The Walking Dead? Do you play as Rick Grimes — or kill him in cold blood? Does the villainous Governor become an ally? Will Glenn live to see a happier ending? And what happens if the Ricktatorship is the Shanetatorship instead? In The Walking Dead: Destinies, the fates of 11 fan-favorite survivors are in your hands. The third-person action-adventure video game lets players relive critical moments from seasons 1-4 of the AMC television series, with gamers taking control of how the story unfolds across such iconic locations as Atlanta, the Greene farm, the Prison, and Woodbury.

Publisher GameMill Entertainment describes the all-new Walking Dead video game coming to PlayStation, XBox, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam: “Change the course of The Walking Dead history. Play as Rick Grimes, who wakes from a coma to find his world forever changed. Fight walkers, relive iconic moments from the hit television series, and change the destiny of The Walking Dead Universe as your choices separate heroes from villains, and the living from the dead.”

Playable characters include the Grimes family — Rick, his wife Lori, and their son Carl — and Rick’s police partner, Shane Walsh. From the Atlanta camp, there’s Merle and Daryl Dixon, Carol, T-Dog, and Glenn; at the prison, the katana-wielding warrior Michonne; and the leader of the walled-off Woodbury community, Philip Blake, a.k.a. the Governor. Each character has a ranged and melee weapon of choice: Rick’s revolver, Daryl’s crossbow, Carol’s knife, and Shane’s shotgun are all available to you to kill walkers (and humans).
