the walking dead The Walking Dead FPS shambling in

Have you watched The Walking Dead?  Of course you have!   As we all gear up for Season 3 (and eagerly await some answers on the zombie-toting Ninja that appeared at the end of Season 2) we also get the announcement that Activision and Terminal Reality will be teaming up to bring us a FPS for The Walking Dead!  Here is a nibble (hehehe) of what we know so far:

Terminal Reality’s The Walking Dead video game takes the undead and brings them out of the TV show and into console gaming systems in a new, terrifying way.  The iconic walkers will relentlessly hunt down players like their television counterparts, using a combination of sight, sound and smell.  As Daryl, players will need to tread carefully throughout each new area they explore.  Once discovered, it doesn’t take much to attract an unstoppable horde of undead walkers, so every threat needs to be assessed, and every situation analyzed.  Players will have to choose between whether to stay and fight while risking a gruesome death or using stealth to avoid the undead.  No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.

The game will focus heavily on the scarcity of resources including food, medical supplies, ammo, and other basic necessities.  Part FPS, part survival horror, you can look for this title to hit in 2013 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.   Check out the rest of the press release below while we wait for more details.
