On September 22, Negan and Maggie from The Walking Dead will be crashing into the roster of the gaming realm of the 2D platformer fighting action game Brawlhalla, developed by Blue Mammoth Games, a Ubisoft studio. The developers announced this huge news on the game’s official Twitter account with a brief trailer.
Negan and Maggie in Brawlhalla: Gameplay sneak-peak
The trailer does not only tease the release of the characters but also gives us an insight into their design and in-game mechanics. The game has a range of melee weapons, and the trailer reveals Maggie using a street sign and shovel to take down foes. Meanwhile, Negan is seen wielding Lucille, his patented baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire.
This is not the first time that Ubisoft’s Brawlhalla has collaborated with AMC’s The Walking Dead. In a previous collaboration, which happened last year, The Walking Dead characters such as Michonne, Rick Grimes, and Daryl Dixon have already made it into the Brawlhalla universe. Negan and Maggie’s addition into the game means that now, a total of five The Walking Dead characters are in Brawlhalla.
The addition of Negan and Maggie overlaps with an in-game event that will take place known as The Walker Attack mode that involves the other The Walking Dead characters. To put the cherry on top, this game mode will be the featured Brawl of the Week during the week of their release. This mode’s gameplay consists of players fending off countless waves of walkers for as long as they can.
There are now 50 playable characters available in Brawlhalla with the newest addition of Negan and Maggie. Characters from other franchises and big crossovers are included among those characters in the game as well. Brawlhalla is currently available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, iOS, and Android devices.
