The good folks over at Activision have sent over all the available details of their official The Walking Dead: Video Game, along with some early art and a much better look at the drool worthy trailer. Check it out and grab your ammo!

From the Press Release
Think you’re tough enough to survive a horde of undead walkers? Gamers will be able to find out next year as Activision Publishing Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc., and Terminal Reality announced today an all-new The Walking Dead™ video game. Based on AMC’s Emmy-Award winning TV series, the do-whatever-you-need-to-survive first-person action game will allow players to assume the role of the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, on a haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.

“The work AMC has done with the TV series has been amazing and we’re ecstatic at the opportunity to be brought into the fold,” said Drew Haworth, Creative Director at Terminal Reality. “The studio is made up of fans of the show, and we think other fans will see that the situations and walkers featured in our game are every bit as gruesome and shocking as they are in the TV series – they look, move and react as expected with full authenticity – and they will surprise you. The player’s fight-or-flight survival instinct is constantly engaged. ‘Flight’ is usually a good bet.”

Terminal Reality’s The Walking Dead video game takes the undead and brings them out of the TV show and into console gaming systems in a new, terrifying way. The iconic walkers will relentlessly hunt down players like their television counterparts, using a combination of sight, sound and smell. As Daryl, players will need to tread carefully throughout each new area they explore. Once discovered, it doesn’t take much to attract an unstoppable horde of undead walkers, so every threat needs to be assessed, and every situation analyzed. Players will have to choose between whether to stay and fight while risking a gruesome death or using stealth to avoid the undead. No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.

“Activision and Terminal Reality are working to deliver a powerful combination of a deep, engrossing story with intense action,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president. “Daryl is such a unique and complex character and we’re excited to offer fans the opportunity to experience this new video game.”

Resources are scarce and scattered in The Walking Dead video game, and gamers will have to not only ration supplies, but carefully consider their food, medical needs, ammunition, and other goods as survival in the game is based upon wit and intellect more so than simple, sheer skill. In order to endure this constant state of danger, players will have to do all they can to silence the noises they make and avoid detection. Throughout his journey, Daryl will encounter a slew of other characters that can help or hurt him in a variety of ways, and whether or not they accompany him is completely up to player choice and represents just some of the major decisions that will constantly be made while fighting to survive.

The Walking Dead video game is scheduled for release in 2013 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC, and is currently rated “RP” (Rating Pending) by the ESRB.

Fear the Walking Dead Takes a Bite Out of Home Video

Published

on

It’s taken three seasons, but “Fear The Walking Dead” has finally become as interesting as it should have been to begin with. If you lost hope after the first two seasons, we invite you to give the third a chance. It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s a rotting step in the right direction.

Game? Than you’ll be happy to know that Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season comes to Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD on March 13!

In Season 3, our survivor families are brought together in the vibrant and violent ecotone of the U.S.-Mexico Border. With international lines done away with following the world’s end, our characters must attempt to rebuild not only society, but their families as well.

Special features including deleted and extended scenes and audio commentaries. Check out the artwork below.

The three-day festival runs January 26 through 28 and will feature over 20 feature films, two short film blocks, several live events, and special guest appearances!

Playing at the festival will be Ted Geoghegan’s Mohawk, Ryan Prows’ Lowlife, Issa López’s Tigers Are Not Afraid, Adam Green’s Victor Crowley, Joe Lynch’s Mayhem, and more.

We really wanted to take a big step forward in becoming the forefront for emerging films and filmmakers in these genres,” said Tim KC Canton, co-founder of the festival and founder of DownrightCreepy.com.

Special guests include Geoghegan, Prows, They Remain‘s Philip Gelatt, and both Green and Lynch, who will not only be on hand for their films but also to do a live recording of their podcast, The Movie Crypt!
