This is The Walking Dead Do-Whatever-You-Need-to-Survive First-person Action Game You’ve Been Waiting For

TheWalkingDead

Don’t call Activision and Terminal Reality’s official The Walking Dead video game a first-person shooter. According to the announcement press release, this all-new game based on the AMC TV series is a “do-whatever-you-need-to-survive first-person action game” starring crossbow-wielding badass, Daryl Dixon. As that unnecessarily long genre description implies, this game won’t be some stock-standard run-and-gun FPS. Ammo and supplies will be limited and stealth and avoidance will often be the best option in your attempt to survive the horde of undead walkers using their honed senses of sight, sound and smell to hunt you down.

The Walking Dead video game, not to be confused with Telltale’s episodic series based on the comics, will be available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 next year.
