Today during Gamescom's opening night showcase a brand-new game was revealed that looks to take the bridge-building game genre and add in a little spice with some undead creatures. The game is called Bridge Constructor The Walking Dead and it has to be one of the most unique game concepts I've ever heard of in quite some time. From what I could glean from the reveal trailer, you'll be building bridges while trying to avoid becoming a snack for some walkers at some point later this year.

So far, there’s not too much I could tell you about Bridge Constructor The Walking Dead other than it will feature zombies and bridge building. The trailer mostly featured a live-action sequence where a survivor of the zombiepocalypse is trying to hunt down a safe space to plug in their laptop and play the game themself in what appears to be an abandoned factory. However, they appear to get too distracted by the game and end up being a tasty treat for some ghoulish walkers. You can check it all out in the trailer below.

Hopefully, there will be more details to come soon as I’m personally very curious how a series like The Walking Dead fits into a bridge-building genre. Do the zombies do the labor work? Are the survivors trying to escape from them using the bridges you make? We’ll have to wait and see for now. There doesn’t appear to be any sort of exact release date for Bridge Contructor The Walking Dead, but it is due to come out later this year on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch and will be making its way to next gen-consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X at some point as well. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on more details as they rise from their graves. In the meantime, be sure to check out the rest of today's Gamescom Opening Night Live coverage.
