The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Launch Trailer Shambles In
Written By
View author's profile

Well, this crept up on us like the proverbial flesh-eating zombie... The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is out tomorrow in North America and is out pretty much everywhere else later in the week. Hence, we have this here launch trailer showing some more gameplay from Terminal Reality's TV show tie-in.

Strangely, there's nary a review to be found anywhere on the interwebs, which rarely bodes well for a game... Make of it what you will, ladies and gents. We've had no hands-on time with the game either.

Everything we know about The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct can be found in our first and only preview here. The game's out tomorrow in North America and in Europe on March 22nd. Watch the launch trailer below.

This game is awful. It's an obvious cash in for the TV show and trying to ride the coat-tales of the Arcade game. Which is truly disappointing.

Well...they went to the effort of making a Wii U version. Not quite sure what that says when other devs with bigger games are giving that platform a miss.

Also the third game this year to have an achievement related to *that* Skyrim meme (Also Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider), a trend I hope dies soon.

Anyway, looks like Aliens: Colonial Marines just got some competition.

I think the only reason there has been no hands on,previews,reviews is because it sucks and the developers know it! They are holding on to the popularity of the show and the comics for it to sell.

Knowing people, they will buy it for that reason. I for one won't be as it feels like a quick half assed cash in.

However when watching the new trailer the other day, it did look alot better than the 1st time I saw it, and I like the Left for Dead vibe to it.

No sale!

I'll be getting this. Even if it's just average at best. It'll be worth a play through. Very likely that the Arcade game will be miles ahead in terms of quality. Case of wait and see.

Despite it being shamelessly obvious that this is a quick cash-in by Activision, the game does actually look like some fun. I'll pick this up in a couple of months when it'll inevitably be cheaper.

Typical and predictable statement. If this game is a cash in on the franchise what the fuck do you think Telltale's game was. I can assure you atleast this game will have some actual gameplay, and yes I loved Telltale's game but let's face it, It lacks in the gameplay department not to mention how buggy and glitchy the game was forcing many of us to replay entire episodes due to loss of save data.

It amazes me how people like you are incapable of thinking for yourself so you instead choose to hate on things because your teenage peers do and a majority of idiots on the internet forums?

Pathetic..

Something seems very off about this game. Very little info, slipped under the radar, no major sites know shit about it and to top it off that trailer looked really....clunky. I want to say avoid but god dammit i love a game with zombies. You should probably avoid it though.

Although the lack of reviews and details of this game is arguably suspicious I for one am actually looking forward to playing it. I'm a huge fan of the TV series and I'm eager to see how a zombie game with a heavy stealth element works out rather than just playing another generic zombie shoot 'em up (as enjoyable as they are). Although I'm aware it may not win game of the year I'm still hopeful that this will still be an enjoyable game.

Glad they got the voice actors. That alone may mean I get it eventually (after a big time price drop), but it sure looks like a shameless cash in to me.

Check my Gamercard I've PLAYED the game and it's awful. So tell me how I can't think for myself.

@24 how did you manage to play it when its not out till tomorrow USA and Friday Europe?

@15, didn't know where to thumb up or down, I agree that the save glitch in Telltale's game was an issue, reluctantly that its a cash in, but it was awesome all the same.

I think I might get it when it gets to £20/£25 unless its totally unplayable awful. I love the show and more mythos for it is good in my book

Also apart from the rather unfortunate graphics, it looks like it could be a fun, action game.

The other thing that's kind of weird about this game is that it's selling brand new for $49.99 instead of the normal $59.99 for new releases (in Canada)... So it's already discounted from the get-go... Odd.

Obviously I'll reserve judgement until I've read a few reviews, etc. but I don't have high hopes.

How is no reviews before the official release date 'Bad' or worrying?
Gears of War Judgement had an embargo until the day before release date, and this website didn't seem to mind that. Fable 3 as well, but that was actually a poor game (Still good reviews, though...)
Not saying it's going to be good by a long shot, but I fail to see how such a conclusion is possible.

Game reviews are over rated and are the death of video games. Just play the game even if you have to rent it.

@ 24

I'm pathetic? Haha! I'm not the one who cowardly backed out of a debate over the last issue we had. Also, your opinion holds about as much merit to me as a priest at church would.. Absolutely none at all.

Quite frankly I don' believe you played it and I'm not going to waste even a second to see if you're bullshitting or not. As I said your opinion holds no water to me since you can't even admit XBL is a bettr service than PSN.

Anyone that stubborn, delusional and ignorant doesn't deserve to be sharing ANY opinion in my book. I rest my case.

@36: That's true, sorta. I mean I like Alone in the Dark, but erbody seems to hate it for whatever reason. Weirdos, probably j/k. I just think it's funny when people who don't like a specific game want YOU to not enjoy it. It's just silly imo. Anyway, I'm picking this tomorrow so I'll be playing within the next few days; gottoa finish up some Deus Ex on another account to see if it's worth adding to my main. Later.

Graphics don't look the best but as long as the game play is good I will get it but when companies don't let people review the game that usually means it utter rubbish.
Fingers crossed that it's at least playable.
