Activision/Terminal Reality Names The Walking Dead ‘Survival Instinct’

Posted on October 26, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Terminal Reality, known for BloodRayne & Kinect: Star Wars, along with Activision have announced the name to their Walking Dead game cleverly titled: The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.

Completely unrelated to the fantastic Telltale Walking Dead game episode series, Survival Instinct is a first person shooter that places you in the role of Daryl Dixon. Who by far is my favorite character in the franchise thus far.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a prequel to the T.V. series as it takes place before Daryl and his infamous brother Merle make it to Atlanta. This game will focus the brothers making their way through the Georgia countryside to the “safe” city of Atlanta. While you only play as Daryl, you can bet that Merle will be there to give you grief throughout the entire game.

You will also meet fellow survivors along the way which you can either help or leave to their own devices, but the consequences of doing so may come back to haunt you.

No set date has been revealed so far for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, but it is expected to launch sometime next year. If you’re a fan of the tv series, join us on our forums and discuss it there! Spoilers are there, so you’ve been warned!

The first of three planned DLC for the well received Dishonored is titled ‘Dunwall City Trials’. The Dunwall City Trials has been give a tentative release date of December with no exact date to pin it down to and will be priced at 400 MSP (or $4.99).

The Dunwall City Trials will offer: “ten distinct trials await challengers,” says the blurb, “including an arena battle against waves of enemy AI, a gravity-defying run of drop assassinations, and a race against the clock. ”

“Dunwall City Trials also features a whole new set of achievements and trophies as well as a global online leaderboard that will establish the greatest assassins for each challenge.”

In addition to the Dunwall City Trails DLC, the other two DLC will be story-driven and released sometime in 2013.  The second DLC will put you in the shoes of Daud, the leader of a group of supernatural assassins.

“Make your way through new Dunwall locales and discover Daud’s own set of weapons, powers and gadgets in this story-driven campaign. How you play and the choices you make will impact the final outcome…”

Story-driven content? Heck yes please! If you haven’t picked up Dishonored yet and are still hanging on the fence about it, check out our review here. I’m really enjoying it a lot, it’s one of the best new IP’s to come out this generation.
