Enjoying Telltale's The Walking Dead adventure series on Xbox Live Arcade? Good. That won't be the only The Walking Dead game in town, as Activision has enlisted Ghostbusters developer Terminal Reality to create a first-person shooter based upon Robert Kirkman's popular zombie series, IGN reports.
While Telltale's game uses the comic books as its inspiration however, Activision and Terminal Reality's shooter takes the AMC TV series as its source material instead. Casting you in the roles of crossbow wielding Daryl Dixon and his racist brother Merle, you'll face hordes of undead in a story that promises to be a "haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta."
Apparently, the game will blend stealth and action, as you strive to evade as many zombies as you shoot. There's resource management suppsedly at work in the game too, and you'll meet a variety of non-playable characters who will either help or hinder your journey. Acti's The Walking Dead FPS is set for launch in 2013.
