Activision Details The Walking Dead Video Game

Whilst Activision and Terminal Reality’s, The Walking Dead Video-game is busy overshadowing TellTale Games own rather crap Xbox LIVE Arcade episodic version – new information has come to the surface today from publishers, Activision on what to expect when their game launches.

Based on AMC’s Emmy-Award winning TV series, the do-whatever-you-need-to-survive first-person action game will allow players to assume the role of the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, on a haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta. The video-game cross-over takes the undead and brings them out of the TV show and into console gaming systems in a new, terrifying way. The iconic walkers will relentlessly hunt down players like their television counterparts, using a combination of sight, sound and smell. As Daryl, players will need to tread carefully throughout each new area they explore. Once discovered, it doesn’t take much to attract an unstoppable horde of undead walkers, so every threat needs to be assessed, and every situation analyzed. Players will have to choose between whether to stay and fight while risking a gruesome death or using stealth to avoid the undead. No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.

Resources are scarce and scattered in The Walking Dead video game, and gamers will have to not only ration supplies, but carefully consider their food, medical needs, ammunition, and other goods as survival in the game is based upon wit and intellect more so than simple, sheer skill. In order to endure this constant state of danger, players will have to do all they can to silence the noises they make and avoid detection. Throughout his journey, Daryl will encounter a slew of other characters that can help or hurt him in a variety of ways, and whether or not they accompany him is completely up to player choice and represents just some of the major decisions that will constantly be made while fighting to survive.

The Walking Dead video game is scheduled for release in 2013

    Did I read this article correctly. Did this jornalist describe Telltale's Walking Dead game as being crap and if so what was he smoking when he wrote this article. Telltale's Walking Dead game is one of the most refreshing and compelling games in recent years. Activision will have their work cut out to even match the success of the the Telltale version as it will be a hard act to follow. The first two episodes have 8/9 out of 10 ratings on every reputable gaming sight.
