Activision is taking a totally different approach than Telltale when it comes to a video game based on The Walking Dead. Activision and Terminal Reality (BloodRayne, Kinect Star Wars) are working together to create a first-person experience that stars Daryl and Merle Dixon from the television series.
This game will be set before the events of the TV show. We’ll be put into the crossbow-wielding shoes of Daryl as he and his brother try to survive on their way to Atlanta. Fans of the show know that Daryl is the more cunning brother that uses stealth to his advantage. That’s exactly how this game will play out. Killing zombies will be optional at times.
There are also going to be additional characters that may or may not join the brothers on their trip. Supplies will be hard to come by as expected.
The Walking Dead Video Game will be released in 2013 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
