Activision has announced that developers Terminal Reality will ship out The Walking Dead FPS Videogame based on the television series, and not to be confused with the recent Walking Dead Episodes on Xbox LIVE Arcade that are based on the comics from TellTale Games… confused? – well, only one is heading for retail.
The Walking Dead according to the press brief will revolve around Daryl Dixon and his brother Merle on a “haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.” Players will control Daryl as they attempt to avoid detection from zombies that hunt using sight, sound and smell and will choose between fighting them or using stealth to avoid detection. According to Activision, “No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.”
The game is slated for release next year and although a first-person shooter, it will have survival horror elements with limited supplies. More info will be posted when received and the official website is now live.
