Hershel Greene is a main character in the mobile app, The Walking Dead: Assault.


Greene Family Farm

Almost nothing is known about Hershel from before the outbreak. However, because the game's continuity follows that of the Comic Series, it is possible Hershel was a farmer before the outbreak began, and may still be operating his farm even throughout the outbreak.


Episode 1: Days Gone Bye

Hershel will appear before each chapter, giving advice such as: "Trade in Supplies for upgrades and items that will increase your chances of survival!"

Hershel's Hint!
