The launch trailer for Activision's shooter based on AMC TV series The Walking Dead has plenty of zombie-killing to go around.
Set before the television show, it stars Daryl Dixon, who refuses to believe his older brother Merle is dead in a post-zombie-apocalypse world. In order to find him, however, he's going to have to deal with quite a few of the titular walking dead.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct comes out tomorrow for Xbox 360, Wii U, PS3 and Windows.
A new behind-the-scenes video for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct features the protagonists' voice actors, who reprise their characters on the TV series here in the game.
Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker play Daryl Dixon and his older brother Merle respectively, and Survival Instinct follows the duo in their adventures before arriving at the city of Atlanta. In the video, Rooker and Reedus discuss their experience lending their voices to the game, and how it differs from playing their characters on TV.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is out for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and Windows PC on March 19.
While Terminal Reality's The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a very different kind of game from Telltale's The Walking Dead — it's a first-person shooter instead of a story-driven adventure game — both titles are about "choice and consequence," reports IGN.
The studio isn't building a run-and-gun experience; instead, Terminal Reality is basing Survival Instinct on the Walking Dead AMC television series, in which the character of Rick Grimes almost dies at the hands of only three zombies. "That was, like, our goal from the get-go," senior artist Glenn Gamble told IGN on Up at Noon. "How do you make three walkers really, really threatening?"
According to Gamble, Survival Instinct actively discourages engaging walkers directly with hand-to-hand combat or guns. But you'll be forced...
