The Walking Dead: Betrayal
The Walking Dead: Betrayal finds players in a difficult situation with empty supply stores and a walker horde descending. In order to survive, players must cooperate with each other and quickly devise their escape plans. Trust becomes a factor as incognito traitors plot against them, delaying repairs and preventing the survivors from leaving. Paranoia and accusations set in as the survivors begin to recognize the sabotage attempts.
The game’s main features include Teamwork, Communication, Crafting & Cooking, and Betrayal & Deception. In order to survive, players must work together, with communication being a pivotal compote to survival. Survivors must scavenge for supplies by leaving the Safe Zone, craft weapons, and cook food to keep up their strength. While the traitors begin the game outnumbered and weak, as the game progresses, they build their strength, and the sabotage begins.
If you don’t survive, getting revenge as a walker is a satisfactory alternative. As a walker, you can control hordes to avenge whoever killed you.
The characters can be customized with in-game purchases of cosmetics using the in-game currency earned after each match.
