Public Beta Program Info

Public Beta Program Info:

The Walking Dead: Road to Survival Public Beta program allows select players access to upcoming Features prior to their release worldwide. Please review the following information about Public Beta to ensure you have a full understanding of the program prior to signing up.

Please do note that the nature of a Public Beta, for features that are currently in development, may contain bugs that impact your ability to engage with the live game.

Important Beta Notes:

  1. Public Beta is available for Android only.

  2. Due to save compatibility issues, Public Beta players who have iOS and Android devices will be locked from using their iOS Device as no Public Build build is available for iOS.

  3. There are a limited number of Public Beta slots available and they will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis.

  4. Public Beta may not reflect the final implementation of all features and are subject to change.

  5. Public Beta Regions are for testing purposes only and players should not consider them as a ‘permanent home’.

  6. To prevent surprise Public Beta updates, we suggest Turning Off Auto-Update

Remove Early Access:

IMPORTANT: Due to Save Incompatibilities, once you have downloaded the Public Beta build it is advised you remain on the build for the duration of the test. Leaving the Public Beta Program and attempting to download the Live Version could result in loss of access to your account for the duration of the Public Beta test as your save will be incompatible.

  2. Click on Leave the Program.

  3. From the Options Menu, select Regions.

Troubleshooting:

Where do I find the Public Beta Build?

The Public Beta build will be available for download from the Google Play store the same way you’d download an app normally.

Why can’t I see the Public Beta build in Google Play?

It can take up to 48 hours for the Public Beta build to fully release to all countries. Clearing the Data on your Google Play app can force the build to appear if it is already propagated to your country.
