So I just received this in my twitter feed...

I have a bad feeling about this.

  • You beat my thread by half a minute LOL merging mine with yours...

    Seems like it will be a first person game and based off the TV show more than the comic.. for ME the more the better.. and it will provide an alternate vision of the franchise I will be keeping an eye on this one.

  • Id want a walking dead jagged alliance type game where you controll many characters and you have to do all sorts of "missions" to survive.

  • A Walking Dead FPS game? I think I've had enough for shooters, thank you. I'll just stick with TT.

  • I much prefer a story driven walking dead experience like TTG game.. but I cant lie and say I will not be interested in giving this a shot... Im particularly interested in seeing how they handle being able to avoid or fight.

    Plus some of those characters back stories will be pretty cool to see... I really hope its not mishandled.

    On the business side of this.. it shouldn't cause any problems because the two games are not being released anywhere NEAR the same time.

  • Yay. A zombie shooter that was everything The Walking Dead needs to avoid. Why not make more adaptations that miss the point?

    Activision Presents:
    Epic Mickey: Disnepocalypse. We took out that lame painting feature and instead focused on making a brawler where you pit Disney characters against each other. No, there are no Final Fantasy characters.
    Mass Effect 4. Finally, a purely linear story with no choices and no customization in character building. Takes place (only) in rural Arkansas.
    The Elder Scrolls: Modern Magewar. All the balls out action you expect from the most extreme FPS series ever! Equip your soldier with magic missiles, burning handsgrenades or the popular MP-47! Melt terrorists, defend freedom or just teabag lesser mages! The choice is yours! (Not featured: dragons, fantasy or Tamriel.)

  • First person zombie shooter games are lame and boring.....

  • Lets hope it uses CoD's engine. Only reason I enjoy CoD (game mechanics-wise) it that on console it gets 60 FPS.

    Otherwise, this is the type of game I've been waiting for (hopefully). Only thing that'd make me happier is if it's sandbox. Oh god, the buckets I'd fill.

  • It's being developed by the same company that made the Ghostbusters video game.

  • I'll be keeping an eye on this too, I would say that I won't be buying it but come on, it is the walking dead!

    LOL

  • Activision has announced a new game based on The Walking Dead. Not to be confused with Telltale’s episodic The Walking Dead adventure game, Activision’s version is a first-person action game based on AMC’s The Walking Dead TV show.

    Developed by Terminal Reality, The Walking Dead will revolve around Daryl Dixon and his brother Merle on a “haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.” Players will control Daryl as they attempt to avoid detection from zombies that hunt using sight, sound and smell and will choose between fighting them or using stealth to avoid detection. According to Activision, “No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.”


    Supplies will be scarce and players will need to carefully manage food, ammunition and supplies as they make their way through the game. Daryl will encounter “a slew of other characters” along the way that can help or hurt him. Whether or not these characters accompany Daryl is completely up to the player and “represents just some of the major decisions that will constantly be made while fighting to survive.”

    The Walking Dead will hit stores in 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Few other details are available, but check out the game’s official site for more info in the future. Until then, keep an eye out for all the latest announcements about The Walking Dead TV show before it returns to AMC for season three later this year.
