Activision reveals The Walking Dead FPS

Terminal Reality pressing the buttons on a separate game based on zombie series

If Telltale's slow-paced, thoughtful video game rendition of The Walking Dead isn't quite your cup of tea, maybe you'll better like the sound of Activision's just-announced game.


The publishing giant has revealed its also working on a game based on the popular zombie series, set for a 2013 release on Xbox, PS3 and PC, with Terminal Reality on development duties.

It's a first-person action game that tells the story of brothers Daryl and Merle Dixon before the events of the AMC series, as they make their way to the promised safety of Atlanta.

Players will choose to face off with zombies, who react on sight but also to smells and sounds, or use stealth to avoid them as they carefully manage limited supplies of ammo and food.

Daryl will meet other characters on the way that can pose a threat or be of assistance - which one will apparently be up to the player in what sounds like a decision-making mechanic.

"No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world," says Activision.

Here's a teaser trailer:
