The experience is heightened by Aristocrat’s surround sound iChair™ for a completely engrossing game that challenges players to win the fight for survival.
“Capitalizing on the show’s dedicated following, we stayed true to the ethos of the AMC series while creating this game. We have designed a game that will appeal to the show’s audience and players will be excited to find all of their favorite characters here,” said Aristocrat Vice President of Gaming Operations Dallas Orchard. “Working with AMC has been phenomenal, and we look forward to continuing our relationship.”
