Walking Dead FPS Announced By Activision

Activision will be publishing a first person shooter based upon AMC’s The Walking Dead television show the publisher announced today. The game is due out in 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC and should not be confused with TellTale Game’s series of adventure games based upon the Walking Dead graphic novels.

The Walking Dead for Xbox 360 will be developed by Terminal Reality, the developer behind Kinect Star Wars, Turning Point Fall of Liberty  and The Ghostbusters Videogame.  The Walking Dead TV series builds a surreal amount of tension and atmosphere and the game is set to recreate this by throwing hordes of the undead who rely on sight, smell and other reflexes in order to hunt player characters.

Activision will have a booth at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con (Booth #5344) where fans can pre-order the game, take part in a photo-op and potentially grab a promotional ‘walker ears’ necklace.
