The influencer campaign is being used to promote a new "The Walking Dead Highlights" update, which allows users to play through storylines from earlier seasons of the AMC TV show.
"The fans absolutely loved our season 7 integration and so we are very excited to bring our players a new series of missions that reflect the most important periods in the history of The Walking Dead," said Next Games CMO Saara Bergström.
The Walking Dead: No Man's Land has seen 16 million downloads since it first launched in September 2015. Next Games is also working on a new game based on the Blade Runner 2049 IP.
