Skydance Interactive and Skybound Entertainment showcased the teaser art for the game in a come-to-life setting at the Harbor House Restaurant from July 19 to July 21.

The Apocalypse Games

The Apocalypse Games was The Walking Dead's answer to the Olympics due to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics being cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Taking place in Saints & Sinners and featuring eight of Twitch and YouTube’s best influencers competing in a series of competitions to become the apoc-olympian champion! The event took place on August 12, 2020, this can be viewed on Skybound’s YouTube page and participating influencer’s individual channels. The event was hosted by Kristian Harloff.[2]

The Apocalypse Games consist of the below competitions:

  • ARCHERY: The most focused and precise apoc-olympians must survive armed with only a bow and arrows. The highest number of arrow kills takes the gold. A tiebreaker is determined by highest score.
  • WALKER BASKETBALL: The sport that’s one part decapathon and nothing is out of bounds! At the gymnasium, each competitor has 5 minutes to collect and throw as many walker heads through the basketball hoop as they can. 1 point per head.
  • MARATHON: Apoc-olympians will attempt to survive to wave 20 in the Trial. Whoever fights through the pain, sweat, and bladder control to cross the finish line at the highest wave takes home the gold. Highest score breaks the tie.
  • FIGURE SLAYING: Slayers will attempt to rack up the most points with stylish and difficult kills in the Trial before being chowed down in walker town. In the event of a tie, highest kill total wins the gold.

The streamers involved were The Shish (Trisha Hershberger), Shirtless (Greg Miller), Walker Stalker (NukemDukem), Swashbuckler (Otter Worldly), Chairman (Berleezy), The Scream (Poiised), The Craftsman (Parker Games), and Big D (CerberusArms).

  • Poiised defeated Berleezy in "Walker Basketball" by 7-1.
  • Greg Miller defeated Trisha Hershberger in "Marathon" by reaching wave 6, while Trisha only reached wave 4.
  • CerberusArms defeated ParkerGames in "Figure Slaying" by 2422-316.
  • NukemDukem defeated Otter Worldly in "Archery" by 84-60.
