The Walking Dead returns tonight with the premiere of season 8 — also the series' landmark 100th episode — and AMC has teamed with Mountain Dew to bring fans into a world overrun by the cannibalistic undead.

Download the series' official augmented reality experience, The Walking Dead Encounter, for iOS and Android and start collecting Walkers by watching new episodes of The Walking Dead Sundays on AMC. Starting tonight, you'll be able to unlock new Walkers by tuning into The Walking Dead every Sunday at 9/8c to scan special Mountain Dew commercials.

As the season continues, scanning specially-marked Mountain Dew products will add even more zombies to your app, with 20 iconic Walkers from the show available. Strike your best Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon and Michonne poses as you combat the flesh-eaters, and share your survival experience with easy exporting to Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, Twitter and more.

The app comes with a "Create a Scene" mode, which lets fans create and direct their own Walking Dead-inspired scenes, which can then be recorded as a photo or a video. You can check out all your Walkers in your very own version of Hershel's barn: in your Walker Gallery you'll be able to view your collection and check out detailed, 360 degree models of your favorite Walkers from the past seven seasons of The Walking Dead.

The app is free and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. The Walking Dead season 8 airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
