Walking Dead "action FPS" announced by Activision

Activision announced today that they are currently producing a new action shooter based on the AMC Walking Dead television series. The game is in development at Terminal Reality, and is due out in 2013 on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

The title will focus on the Dixon brothers, Merle and Daryl, and appears to be a prequel to the series. Players will control Daryl in what seems to be something of a survival horror title. “No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world,” said Activision.

They also said that supplies will be scarce, and other characters from the series will be encountered who may be able to tag along. IGN has a brief teaser trailer.

Terminal Reality has a bit of an unpredictable history lately, developing Kinect Star Wars and Ghostbusters: The Video Game as well as many other lesser known titles.
