    The Walking Dead FPS Announced

    Activision has announced a new game based on The Walking Dead. Not to be confused with Telltale’s episodic The Walking Dead adventure game, Activision’s version is a first-person action game based on AMC’s The Walking Dead TV show.

    Developed by Terminal Reality, The 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 as they attempt to avoid detection from zombies that hunt using sight, sound and smell and will choose between fighting them or using stealth to avoid detection. According to Activision, “No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.”


    Supplies will be scarce and players will need to carefully manage food, ammunition and supplies as they make their way through the game. Daryl will encounter “a slew of other characters” along the way that can help or hurt him. Whether or not these characters accompany Daryl is completely up to the player and “represents just some of the major decisions that will constantly be made while fighting to survive.”

    The Walking Dead will hit stores in 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Few other details are available, but check out the game’s official site for more info in the future. Until then, keep an eye out for all the latest announcements about The Walking Dead TV showbefore it returns to AMC for season three later this year.

    Seems like Activision is just going to ride success that Telltale is having right now. Who knows though? Maybe it will be good. Does anybody know Terminal Reality's track record???

    Had to look them up as never heard of them but apparently they developed BloodRayne 1 and 2.

    Daryl is an awesome character and I could see some good gameplay elements coming from his hunting skills.

    That said I hope they keep the feel of survival and focus on character realtions that are in the comics. If they make this a standard FPS fare it will probably be dissapointing. I've enjoyed everything in The Walking Dead world so far so hopefully this will be another plus for the brand.

    Doesn't seem like they are that great. The most recent game they made was Kinect Star Wars and we know how that turned out. The only game I noticed on there that turned out pretty good was the Ghostbusters game. But that is out of at least 15-20 games so I on't know about this one. Even BloodRayne was pretty mediocre.

    Who know. This game may be the one that turns them around.

    Love the comics, love the show, love the episodic game, but this.... Just sounds kinda dumb. The whole thing that makes The Walking Dead so fun for me is "Safety in numbers." The whole staying in a group aspect. Now don't get me wrong, Daryl is a badass guy, and i'd love to hunt walkers with his crossbow, but the description just doesn't pull me in. Maybe I will change my mind when I see a trailer or some gameplay because I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead!

    Seems like they're just trying to strike while the iron is hot so to speak. I doubt it'll be half as good as the TellTale series and will more than likely just be another generic FPS game. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

    Activision does not make COD. They just own the developers that make COD (currently Infinity Ward and Treyarch). Activision basically supplies them with the money to make the games.

    I wouldn't be getting too excited for this game.
