AMC and Activision announced today that The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will be released on March 26 in North America, and on March 29 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC.
They even got Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker to do a promo (and check out Michael Rooker’s hat):
Here’s the official description from AMC:
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a first-person action survival game that brings to life the authentic, heart-stopping horrors of the AMC Emmy award-winning TV series The Walking Dead. In the game, players assume the role of the crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon (voiced by Norman Reedus from AMC’s hit TV series) alongside his brother Merle (voiced by costar Michael Rooker). Together, they embark on a haunting, unforgiving quest across the Georgia countryside.
“Players will need to tread carefully throughout this grim adventure, as resources are scarce and hope even scarcer,” says AMC in a blog post. “From scrounging for weapons, food and water to surviving encounters with the undead and the living, gamers will have to use their wits to stay alive in this terrifying, post-apocalyptic world. Do you risk using stealth to go in close for a quiet kill, attack from a distance and hazard attracting a swarm of walkers, or avoid the battle and live to fight another day? Helping survivors can bring benefits — but can you afford to trust everyone you meet? Every path, every action, every choice has a consequence. At the end of the world, no place is truly safe.”
Earlier this week, we looked at a gameplay trailer for the game, which frankly, wasn’t all that impressive.
