Activision Blizzard today announced an all-new The Walking Dead video game based on AMC's Emmy-Award winning TV series and developed by Terminal Reality for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. This survival first-person action game will allow players to assume the role of the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, on a haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.
Resources are scarce and scattered in The Walking Dead video game, and gamers will have to not only ration supplies, but carefully consider their food, medical needs, ammunition, and other goods as survival in the game is based upon wit and intellect more so than simple, sheer skill. In order to endure this constant state of danger, players will have to do all they can to silence the noises they make and avoid detection. Throughout his journey, Daryl will encounter a slew of other characters that can help or hurt him in a variety of ways, and whether or not they accompany him is completely up to player choice and represents just some of the major decisions that will constantly be made while fighting to survive.
The Walking Dead video game is scheduled for release in 2013 - a trailer is now locally mirrored.
Update: Activision has a special offer for fans attending San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). The first 100 pre-orders on site at Activision’s SDCC booth (#5344) will receive an extremely limited edition version of Daryl's 'walker ears' necklace from the show. Attendees will also be able to place themselves into the horrors of The Walking Dead with a game-related photo-op.
