The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Gets Release Date

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is coming to Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 26, Activision and AMC announced.
According to website listings for several video game retailers, the upcoming first-person shooter from Terminal Reality and Activision will be priced at $49.99.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is based on the hit AMC television show which is based on the hit comic book. It is completely separate from the highly-regarded Telltale Games episodic point-and-click adventure that released last year.
[adsense250itp]The game is set before the events of the TV series. The story follows Daryl Dixon and his brother Merle as they fight through the zombie-infested Georgia countryside.
Players will have to fight for their survival with scarce resources. Weapons, food and water will be important and rare elements. Much like in the show, Daryl and Merle must pick their battles and beware of their attack strategy. Making too much noise will attract more zombies and avoiding a fight altogether is often a good idea. Players will also encounter other survivors along the way, and must decide if they want to risk losing valuable resources to help others against zombie hordes.
The newly announced Wii U version of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will take advantage of the Wii U Gamepad. The touchscreen controller will be used for inventory management. Rather than having a separate inventory screen that can be pulled up by pressing a button, as in other versions of the game, players using the Wii U Gamepad will have their inventory on the screen in front of them at all times.
Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, and Michael Rooker, who plays Merle, bring their acting talents from the TV show to the video game.
It was originally announced that Activision and Terminal Reality were working on a first-person zombie survival game based on The Walking Dead TV series in July.
