The Walking Dead FPS coming from Activision and Terminal Reality

Telltale has been doing quite well with its game based on The Walking Dead comic. However, Activision has its own game coming out as well, one based on the AMC television series.

The Walking Dead will be a first-person shooter developed by Terminal Reality (Kinect Star Wars). The game serves as a prequel as players control Daryl and Merle Dixon on a "haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta."

Players will have to be stealthy and scavenge the environment for supplies, food, and ammo. Like in Telltale's game, Daryl will encounter other characters, and whether or not these characters help you will be dependent on the "major decisions" you make while playing.

The game will be available in 2013 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. IGN has the first trailer for the game, which has absolutely zero gameplay footage.
