“We felt the best way to celebrate Skybound’s 5th Anniversary was by throwing a Walking Dead party at Comic Con with all of our friends,” said Dan Murray, President of Skybound Interactive. “We’ve joined forces with Walker Stalker to deliver the ultimate Walking Dead Festival at Petco Park stadium, while partnering with Twitch to live broadcast it around the world. There will be more than a few surprises and several world premieres announced at this extravaganza. Whether you enjoy experiencing the horrors of The Walking Dead in virtual reality from the folks at Starbreeze, running through the bowels of the stadium in the return of Walking Dead Escape, engaging with Superfight online or watching a special live performance from the actors of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, there will be a little bit of Dead for everyone.”
To attend this Skybound event in person, guests can enter Petco Park stadium through the East Village Entrance aka The Beach.
