The Walking Dead gets first-person shooter

Activision enlisting Terminal Reality to produce Xbox 360, PS3, PC game based on AMC horror series; release set for 2013.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

The Walking Dead is getting another game adaptation. IGN is reporting that Activision is following up on Telltale Games' episodic adventure spawned by the comic series with its own first-person shooter based on the AMC TV series.

Daryl Dixon takes aim in an episode of AMC's hit TV show.

The game will be set in rural Georgia and center around brothers Daryl and Merle Dixon, and recap their journey to Atlanta through the zombie-dotted countryside. Players will be able to choose whether to confront the undead head-on or attempt to avoid detection and minimize the number of firefights. The latter approach may be beneficial, as proper rationing of food and ammunition will be a consideration for players.

This is not the first time Terminal Reality has made a game with undead adversaries. The studio was previously responsible for Atari's Ghostbusters: The Video Game, as well as Majesco's BloodRayne and BloodRayne 2. Its most recent release was April's Xbox 360-exclusive Kinect Star Wars.

Activision's The Walking Dead is expected to launch next year for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
