An announced disaster?
Initial suspicions about The Walking Dead: Destinies actually came from the first official gameplay scenes, and were reinforced by clips that some angry gamers shared on social media, showing a technically backward, bug-filled game.

Adapted from the famous TV series A series produced by AMC in which the player’s choices influence and potentially distort the events seen in the first 4 seasons. For example, it’s even possible to let Shane Walsh survive by having him replace protagonist Rick Grimes.
