Not to be confused with episodic adventure Telltale games are currently helming, Activision are working on a first-person action game based on The Walking Dead TV series.
Currently in development by Terminal Reality, the game follows Daryl and Merle Dixon on their “haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.” Players will be taking on the role of Daryl, who can choose to engage the zombie hordes head on or take a stealthier approach.
This prequel to the TV series will force players to carefully micromanage supplies, ammunition and food. Encounters with other characters will put Daryl into situations that can help or hinder him, whether or not these characters accompany you will be down to the player, making up “just some of the major decisions that will constantly be made while fighting to survive.”
The game is set for release in 2013 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and with the 3rd series of The Walking Dead on TV later this year, a trip to Atlanta might just be on your cards next year.
