It doesn't quite have the same ring to it as "Super Dixon Bros." to me, but starting today, Activision's The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct first-person-shooter will indeed supply players with a video game adventure following Daryl and his brother Merle as they journey from Georgia to Atlanta, complete with all the requisite zombie slaying/surviving antics.
Now available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC, the game is meant to bring to life "the authentic, heart-stopping horrors of the AMC hit TV series," based on Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard's TWD comic book series.
Unlike more straightforward zombie shooters, Survival Instinct will apparently employ plenty of stealth mechanics and see players work to avoid zombie detection by sight, sound and even smell, like in the TWD comic and TV adaptation. For fans worried about authenticity, Daryl and Merle feature not only the likenesses, but also the voices of TWD TV stars Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker, respectively.
