Activision has revealed plans to make a first person shooter based on the Walking Dead zombie franchise!
Great news for fans of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead. While millions of fans have been enjoying the episodic point-and-click adventure game from Telltale Games, console fans hungry for a little more action will be excited to learn that Activision is making a shooter based on the popular comic book, AMC television series, and live action role-playing game.
The Outhouse is proud to reveal that we have obtained exclusive screenshots from the game, which we are posting here. In the first shot, you can see how Activision uses state-of-the-art graphics to present a realistic first person viewpoint as the player guns down zombies with a handgun, just like Rick and Shane in the TV show.
Check out the informative HUD which gives the player an idea of how much health and ammo they are carrying for all of their zombie-killing action. The game uses texture rendering technology to create realistic 3D environments. Look at this horde of flesh-eating zombies encroaching on the player! Fantastic!
Zombies won't be the only enemies the player faces in the game. With the world in a state of chaos following the zombie apocalypse, nobody can be trusted, not even these military commandoes, armed with machine guns, whom the player must face in this dazzlingly realistic concrete bunker.
Could the videogame reveal upcoming plotlines in the comic or television show? This reporter has followed the Walking Dead comic for years now, and I don't remember Rick and the gang ever facing off against a giant zombie brain on a spider-robot. Perhaps this is the big secret in Walking Dead #100?!
The game is due out sometime in 2013 from Activision, and though other websites don't have the sweet exclusive screenshots like we do above, the trailer below has been making it's rounds on the web, and you can also check out the website for the game here.
