Brawhalla x The Walking Dead

Back in 2020, Brawlhalla and The Walking Dead joined forces as Rick, Daryl, and Michonne arrived in the game alongside a map depicting the prison from Seasons 3 and 4, and even a new game mode that challenged players to survive against unending waves of walkers.

In today’s update, the crossover continues in Part II as Maggie and Negan have now officially joined Brawlhalla.

Both of these new characters have custom signature effects, weapon skins, unique lock-in animations, and dedicated roster spots. Plus, the Walker Attack game mode will feature as Brawl of The Week.

That’s not all though, there’s even a brand new map for the Climb game mode, Siege of Lions. More details on the September 22 Brawlhalla update can be found in the patch notes below.
