Viewers witnessed the "march to war" on The Walking Dead Season 7, but soon Disruptor Beam will let you live it in The Walking Dead: March to War. Based on Robert Kirkman's comic book series, the new mobile game is teased even further with new character art (including Negan) and details on the council system.

The new character art features Negan, Michonne, and Andrea—all of whom are Council Members in The Walking Dead: March to War. Senior Game Designer Michael Leoncavallo recently discussed the Council System on Disruptor Beam's blog, and he talked about the role the Council System and its members will play in the mobile game:

"The Council System is our way of getting characters from the graphic novels into the hands of players. Players will be able to use their favorite Walking Dead characters to lead their already formidable force of Survivors.

The Council System is so central to the game that players can’t even send their Survivors out into the world unless they are led by a Council Member. As previously discussed, players recruit Survivors to be the core of their power, but those survivors are very weak when you recruit them. They’re rookies that need the guidance and expertise of characters like Michonne and Andrea to help get the job done.

...We are currently planning to launch with 12 Council Members. This includes 11 well known characters from the graphic novels and one original character created by Disruptor Beam."

To read more of Leoncavallo's comments on the Council System, visit Disruptor Beam's blog, and check out the new character art below. And, in case you missed it, check out previously revealed character art from The Walking Dead: March to War.

"The Walking Dead: March to War is a story-driven multiplayer strategy game. Players must fight alongside and against others for control of scarce resources in and around a devastated Washington D.C., while fending off walkers and attempting to rebuild society. As the leader of a group of survivors, each player will assemble a team including a Council of well-known characters from The Walking Dead such as Rick, Michonne, and Negan. Faced with an ongoing series of moral choices, players will defend their camp against hordes of walkers and, the bigger threat, other survivors. Inspired by the stark look of The Walking Dead comics, March to War will feature rich 3D graphics unlike anything seen in other The Walking Dead or strategy mobile games.

The Walking Dead: March to War will be free-to-play and released on the App Store and Google Play this year. Fans should register as a Survivor at to stay up-to-date on the latest developments as more details are announced."
