Readers of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comics know that a certain character who has not yet appeared on the show has a very interesting pet. While we'll have to wait and see how this animal is brought to life on the TV series, players of Scopely’s The Walking Dead: Road to Survival can now utilize Shiva in the fight against Negan and The Saviors as part of the mobile game's latest update.

Press Release: The newest update to Scopely’s worldwide hit game - The Walking Dead: Road to Survival - is available now on the App Store and Google Play. The update introduces Kingdom Rising, a new storyline opening up the world of Jesus, Ezekiel and Shiva, where players can join forces against the Saviors for the first time outside of the graphic novels. Players can unlock the fierce and loyal Shiva, the pet tiger of Ezekiel, as a playable character via the in-game “gacha” system.

Scopely is also introducing new gameplay features that expand and upgrade the experience with 3D Touch:

  • A quick press from the home screen brings up a menu to quickly access factions, the roadmap and raids.
  • A soft press on a character in combat brings up valuable character profile information.
  • A hard press on a farm or material post triggers immediate resource collection; a hard press on a character in the Enhance screen will select up to 10 characters with the same persona.
  • Players can hold the ‘+’ icon to stack items
 in queue, and press harder to stack 
 faster during item crafting and training.

The update also includes new survival upgrades such as a 30-Day Pass, which grants users access to currency and special rewards for purchase within the game. The pass will allow immediate hard currency rewards, double the daily allowance of hard currency once a day for 30 days. Passholders will receive a bonus mystery prize at the end of every month, kicking off with Rare Negan for this month.

Last but not least, Scopely has released a new “All Out War” trailer highlighting the highly-anticipated Negan to coincide with The Walking Dead season finale on Sunday night. You can check out the trailer here.

The latest update for The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is available for download now on Android and iOS.
