The new zombie game from AMC and Activision, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, has finally gotten an official release date - March 26th in North America and March 29th in Europe.
"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. 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."
The Walking Dead scored big at last night's Spike Video Game Awards, as The Walking Dead: The Game earned home five awards including the top honor of Game of the Year.
- Game of the Year
- Best Adapted Video Game
- Best Downloadable Game
- Best Performance by a Human Female - Melissa Hutchison
