Walking Dead FPS Announced

IGN reports that Activision is planning a first-person shooter based on The Walking Dead to be developed by Terminal Reality (Terminal Velocity, BloodRayne) for release on PCs and consoles next year. They have a couple of trailers to whet your appetite, and here's the word they have on the game:

Developed by Terminal Reality, The Walking Dead will revolve around Daryl Dixon and his brother Merle on a “haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.” Players will control Daryl as they attempt to avoid detection from zombies that hunt using sight, sound and smell and will choose between fighting them or using stealth to avoid detection. According to Activision, “No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.”

Supplies will be scarce and players will need to carefully manage food, ammunition and supplies as they make their way through the game. Daryl will encounter “a slew of other characters” along the way that can help or hurt him. Whether or not these characters accompany Daryl is completely up to the player and “represents just some of the major decisions that will constantly be made while fighting to survive.”

Playing with a large group is pretty much the only way to really enjoy this right now. I watched a live stream of about a dozen people playing it earlier today. They came across a few people camped in the woods. They killed a couple of them and the others disconnected. They had a shit ton of tents set up with all kinds of good gear in them. They stayed a little too long picking through the loot though because the ones that disconnected must have called their friends and they all got on at the same time and a big ass firefight broke out. Everyone got scattered and disoriented and they were trying to figure out who was friend and foe. In the end, all but two or three got killed, and one of the survivors had good gear (sniper rifle & cammo) was on a hill in the woods picking off people in the other group.

I can definitely see the potential with this game when I play threw it and was pretty much blowing off steam from what happened.

Also, I don't know if it's the engine at fault or simply being this early in development (or both) but there are pretty massive clipping issues where I've become stuck either in walls or in the floor which forced me to kill myself through respawn even after deleting and creating a new profile. Another issue is that Zombies seem to be able to move through doors or pop in from the floor if you've been spotted and doorways and ladders are sometimes sketchy where you're not always able to go in to the room or climb.

Zombie and melee animations just make me scratch my head and laugh though.

As for this game, spoiler, they both live.

It says on your chart that you're fucked up. Ah, you talk like a fag, and your shit's all retarded.
