First Gameplay Footage From ‘The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct’ FPS Arrives [Video]

Following a relatively quiet 2012, Activision kicked off the new year with a new gameplay video for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, its 2013 first-person-shooter based on AMC’s TV adaptation of Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard’s TWD comic book. While this early footage doesn’t do a ton to differentiate itself from other current generation console/PC zombie survival-horror FPS games (a guy shoots, stabs and sledgehammers the undead in a post-apocalyptic urban environment), viewers will recognize protagonist Daryl Dixon’s tactic of distracting the undead with sound. Its overall cartoon-y aesthetic is a bit of a surprise, though, considering the game is based on the TWD TV series rather than directly on the comic book. Missing from the footage are crossbows, the game’s upcoming scent mechanic, and the likeness of actor Norman Reedus. Still, fans will probably be intrigued by this brief taste of a game that will see Daryl and his brother Merle go on a”…on a haunting, unforgiving quest across the Georgia countryside to reach the supposed safety of Atlanta.”

Survival Instinct will follow the release of several other TWD video game options, including Telltale’s recently-wrapped clickable adventure series, the social game on Facebook and The Walking Dead: Assault on iOS.
