After the release in August, the mobile game The Walking Dead: All Stars dropped the first major update, introducing the Headhunting system, a new PVP mode called Last Man Standing, and a new character, Annie, who fights alongside his hawk Phoenix.
While some All Stars characters are taken directly from the comics, others, like Annie, are designed specifically for the game. Annie is a neutral character who has a special relationship with her Hawk Phoenix, and also boasts mystical powers. Annie can direct Phoenix to provoke enemies in battle, and can heal allies with medicinal herbs.
The new update also introduces Headhunting, a new system that players can use to recruit allies. The press release says players can use the Headhunting system to acquire characters “from a variety of arrangements – from mythical overseers to vicious predators.”
A new elite PVP mode is also being added to the game – called Last Man Standing, the new tournament will only be open to the top players from Frontier battles, requiring players to rank from 1 to 10. Last Man Standing’s competitors will have to “fight every opponent in the tournament to reach the final.”
All Stars will also host limited-time events, such as a Town Manager-style bingo event that offers rewards that can be funneled into character development, with players completing All bingo will unlock an epic level character for free. Limited “Inventory Release and Growth Support” events will also begin on October 4, providing players with more opportunities to earn additional rewards.
