While the videogame industry may have been crooning over Telltale’s Walking Dead adventure game series, Activision and developer Terminal Reality (Ghost Busters: The Video Game) have been working on their own interactive vision of the property with The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.
Based on AMC’s television series, The Walking Dead, Survival Instinct is a first-person action game that will focus on the story of Daryl Dixon and brother Merle as they make their way through the Georgia countryside fighting off all manner of zombies, while meeting up with other survivors who may or may not simply be out to steal your supplies.
Those supplies and other items, like food and ammunition for weapons, will be low in number and frequency, so you’ll constantly be faced with decisions during your encounters with the shambling dead: Do you flee to fight another day, or are you strong enough to destroy some zombie brains right there where you stand?
And here’s another question for you – when is the game due for release? Here’s the answer:
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct – Release Date Announced
There you have it – The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is out on March 26th in the US and March 29th in Europe and the UK, with a planned release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U!
Do you have high hopes for this videogame version of The Walking Dead? Do you think it will live up to the high watermark set by Telltale’s games?
