Zombies Rule!

Flipper Factory Releases The Walking Dead in Pro & Limited Edition Versions

 

Stern Pinball has launched its Pro and Limited Edition models of The Walking Dead pinball machine. Inspired by the popular AMC drama, the newest Stern game brings the hit series to life on the pinball playfield.

AMC’s The Walking Dead, the most watched series among adults aged 18-49, is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The drama tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse and follows a group of survivors, led by sheriff Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.

Pro PlayfieldStern’s The Walking Dead pinball features everything fans would want in a flesh-eating pinball world. Players fight to survive the zombie apocalypse alongside series icon, Sheriff Rick Grimes, by battling zombies and completing various game missions. The game includes multiple zombie toys for adrenalin-filled zombie battles at familiar locations from the show such as the Prison and Cell Block C. A brilliant high-definition zombie-filled art package heightens the player’s excitement.

The Limited Edition (LE) version of the game offers unique special effects such as a fish tank with illuminated sculpted zombie heads and a motorized crossbow assembly that allows players to launch the ball anywhere in the game. The LE mirrored back glass with exclusive art adds to the dynamic pinball experience.

“The Walking Dead story has captured the intrigue of audiences for years, from the popular comic books to the hit TV series. We are thrilled to serve such a passionate fan base and to bring this game to pinball fans,” said Gary Stern, chairman and CEO of Stern.

The Walking Dead returns for its fifth season on Sunday, October 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
