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!
