‘The Walking Dead’ Gets a Daryl-based FPS

I haven’t played the current episodic Walking Dead game from Telltale Games, and there’s already a new game on the cards. A shooter in which you are Daryl Dixon (voiced by Norman Reedus). It’s called Survival Instinct and will be released at some point in 2013 by Activision.  Michael Rooker is also lending his voice as Merle Dixon. The game will cover events before the Dixon brothers met the group.

Of working with Norman Reedus, developers at Terminal Reality said:

“Norman is super-cool, generous, and a real joy to work with,” writes Terminal Reality Creative Director Drew Haworth. “And man, does that guy deliver! He gets the scene, the line, and what you’re going for instantly and then doubles down on it, effortlessly ‘Darylizing’ lines for maximum punch. He’s the kind of actor that really makes writers look good.”

Drew Haworth also said:

“Our goal is to shape Daryl authentically, chronicling everything that happens to him from the initial Wildfire Global Outbreak until he joins with Rick Grimes’s group at that quarry near Atlanta,”
“And on the way, we’ll reveal a couple of our own interesting backstory surprises that fans haven’t already gleaned from the series.”

“Players will have the opportunity to meet some interesting characters and have a hand in deciding their fate,”
“Oh, and there are some really cool zombies.”
