AMC and Next Games recently announced that they will be releasing a new augmented-reality game, “The Walking Dead: Our World,” on July 12.

The app follows a similar location-based format as Niantic’s “Pokemon Go,” which was released in 2016 and soon took over smartphones.

Players will be able to create their own avatars, team up with other players to rescue survivors, and embark on weekly challenges. Characters from the show, including Rick, Daryl, and Michonne will also make an appearance.

The game will be available on the iOS App Store and Google Play.
