A Pokémon Go-style Walking Dead mobile game is coming!

The Walking Dead is coming out with its own augmented-reality mobile game, just like Pokémon Go, but a lot less cute.

Announced Tuesday, AMC and Next Games are launching The Walking Dead: Our World, an gaming app coming to iOS and Android beginning Thursday, July 12.

Players will be able to move their avatars by walking around neighborhoods with their phones in hand. Instead of catching creatures by chucking Pokéballs at them, you’ll be roaming the landscape to fight walkers, collect stashes, rescue survivors, embark on missions, and team up with other players to complete weekly challenges.
