We all know how big a phenomenon Pokémon Go was when it took over the world last year – and now a similar Walking Dead game is coming via Apple.

Created using Apple’s ARKit, a platform that lets you make Augmented Reality experiences, The Walking Dead: Our World will basically show you hordes of zombies in front of you on your screen – wherever you are in the world – and you’ll have to battle them with guns, grenades, swords and whatever else.

AMC Networks and Next Games said of the location-based mobile app: “Fight walkers on the streets, in the park, on your sofa, wherever and whenever you want.”

But don’t worry, you won’t be on your own. Daryl, Rick, Michonne and other major characters from The Walking Dead will also be around to help you fight off the zombies.

There’s no release date set for The Walking Dead: Our World just yet, but it will be available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices when it launches.

The zombie series has done pretty well in the gaming market already. Mobile role-playing title The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, also from AMC and Next Games, has over 16 million downloads since its release in October 2015.

The TV show’s production company Skybound Entertainment has also joined forces with Skydance Interactive to make Walking Dead virtual reality games on the series, with the first release coming next year.

So, if you love The Walking Dead, soon you’ll have no excuse at all to look up from your phone.
