Fight the dead. Fear the living.
Explore the unforgiving, post-apocalyptic world of the dead, where you must learn to survive. Together. In The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game, the player characters must not only hone their physical skills, but deeply explore who they truly are – what drives them to go on, what they consider worth fighting for, and what they’re capable of doing, in the best and worst of times.
About The Walking Dead Universe RPG
In The Walking Dead Universe RPG, you will play as people struggling to survive in a hostile world. Exceptional challenges can appear from anywhere.

Expect the stress and stakes to be high.
The Walking Dead Universe RPG is a co-production between AMC Networks and Free League. The team has been working closely with key forces behind the franchise and will introduce new story elements while drawing inspiration from the current series and upcoming spin-offs. The anticipated RPG raised close to $600k and unlocked 18 stretch goals during the successful crowdfunding campaign.
