Activision has announced The Walking Dead Video Game.
The new game is basically a first person zombie shooter by Terminal Reality, the team behind Ghostbusters and Kinect Star Wars.
Not to be confused with Telltale’s critically-praised episodic affair, Terminal Reality’s Walking Dead will revolve around Daryl Dixon and his brother Merle on a “haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.”
Players will control Daryl while attempting to avoid detection from zombies that hunt using sight, sound and smell. Activision says, “No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.”
It sounds like it’s not all about shooting though as players will need to carefully manage food, ammunition and supplies as they make their way through the game. The Walking Dead will arrive in 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Here’s a trailer.
