As far as the game goes, this is entirely the opposite. It is the same universe but the whole plot, characters, areas and story is utterly different. Nothing like comics nor tv or novel at all. Sure some characters make an appeareance here and there (hershel, glenn, lilly etc) but they are nothing like in the show nor the comics.
I highly doubt any characters from the game would ever appear in the show. for once it is because the people writing the walking dead have absolutely nothing to do with the people writing the game story or characters.
You do realize the game is canon to the comics? If the game is apart of the comics, it's not crazy for one to theorize that characters from the game can be included.
And not really. Sophia's dead. Carol's still alive. The Dixon brothers are a major part of the series. Tyreese just came in, so him being killed by the Governor like he was in the comics is unlikely. It follows the story, but it's very liberal with it. So it's hard to predict what will happen.
