No, we’re talking about the other game based on The Walking Dead. Activision and Terminal Reality’s first-person action game. The one based on the AMC TV show!
Are we all up to speed? Good. We would hate for there to be any confusion when talking about this just-announced pre-order offer for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.
Due out on March 26th in the US and March 29th in Europe and the UK, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is yet to show its true colours to gamers (other than various shades of crimson and hues that make up pale, rotting flesh), but Activision is being so bold as to offer extra downloadable content in exchange for your pre-order of the game.
Gamers in the UK will be able to pre-order The Walking Dead at GAME, while their counterparts in Ireland can do the same at GameStop, and be eligible for the ‘Walker Herd Survival Pack,’ which includes the following:
“In this exclusive DLC pack you will have access to the all-new Herd Mode where you need to fight for survival against endless waves of walkers. The dead need no rest ‒ will you?
“In addition, fight off walkers in the story mode with a new arsenal of melee weapons including a survival knife, sawtoothed machete, kukri, reinforced hatchet and advanced machete. With ammo scarce and the undead attracted to loud noises, a sharp, silent blade might just be your most trusted companion (note: a new game must be started to access the extra weapons).”
Check out a story snippet from this new game mode in the trailer below:

Now are we reaching danger levels for the amount of zombie games we have to choose from? Did we reach that point long ago? Or do you think there can never be enough shambling undead in your interactive entertainment?
