Activision’s “The Walking Dead” Gets A New Title

 The Walking Dead Activision Game

Activision’s new game based on The Walking Dead (not to be confused with TellTale’s) will be called “The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct“. It is being developed by the folks over at Terminal Reality, and will be a first person shooter.

AMC has also announced that a contest will be held for fans of the series, where fans are given an opportunity to participate in the contest held by AMC when The Walking Dead TV show is airing, by using the words given out during the episode to enter the contest online and have a chance to appear in the video game adaptation of the show.

According to AMC, Terminal Reality will be given photos of the contest winners, and they will use them  “to create a unique character whose backstory and chilling death scene may be encountered by players during The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.” Each winner will have their own level appearance.

Activision describes it as “a do-whatever-you-need-to-survive first-person action game that brings the deep, character-driven world of AMC’s Emmy Award-winning TV series onto console gaming systems and the PC in a frightening, new way. The game puts players in the role of the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, on a haunting, unforgiving quest across the Georgia countryside to reach the supposed safety of Atlanta.”

The game does not have an official release date yet, but a release window has been revealed for 2013 on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
