The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Now Coming Out On March 19By: Zach Walton - February 1, 2013
Remember The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct? It’s the first-person shooter based on the wildly popular graphic novel and TV series of the same name. It was originally scheduled to come out on March 26, but publisher Activision has moved it up a week.
Polygon reports that the latest The Walking Dead game will now launch on March 16 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The Wii U version of the title will launch a week later on March 26.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct has run into some rough patches since being announced last year. For one, the title is already facing skepticism from gamers who feel that it can’t possibly live up to the high standard set by Telltale’s The Walking Dead games from last year. It also doesn’t help that a fan cut together some early footage and called it a gameplay trailer. Many gamers took it as the real deal and assumed the early footage was representative of the final product.
Now Activision and developer Terminal Reality have a little over a month and a half to convince players that it has what it takes to deliver a game that Walking Dead fans can rally behind. Unfortunately, Activision hasn’t exactly been selling the game to players very well. The latest trailer features no gameplay instead opting to have the TV series’ actors talk about it for less than 20 seconds.
