With the season 7 premiere just weeks away, The Walking Dead is getting a new mobile game.

Gaming company Disruptor Beam is launching The Walking Dead: March to War, a 3D multiplayer mobile game that will allow fans to fight the dead and fear the living. 

After creating games for Star Trek and Game of Thrones, Disruptor Beam is teaming with Skybound Entertainment to create immersive graphics that transport players into the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead.

In the multiplayer game, players will assemble teams of their favorite Walking Dead characters such as Rick, Michonne and Negan to defend their camp against walkers, rival teams of survivors and large-scale disasters. Teams also will adventure through Washington, D.C., to battle for control of scarce resources and save the human race from total destruction. 

“The alliances players form and the enemies they make will define their story, and dictate whether they will succeed or fail — an experience that we hope will feel very familiar to any Walking Dead fan,” Joey Lapegna, director of product & design at Disruptor Beam, said Thursday in a statement. 

Before its 2017 launch, fans can register as a survivor at MarchtoWar.com for exclusive in-game promotions and Walking Dead news updates. The Walking Dead: March to War will be available on the App Store and Google Play.

The Walking Dead season 7 is set to premiere Sunday, Oct. 23, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
