Activision’s clearly been paying close attention to Telltale’s success with its episodic The Walking Dead series, as it’s just announced a spin-off of its own called the, er, well, The Walking Dead. The Terminal Reality developed first-person shooter will put you in the shoes of Daryl Dixon, and see you travelling to Atlanta with your brother Merle. Those are some great names by the way.

According to an exclusive IGN preview of the title, the game will allow you to use stealth to avoid the undead. It also sounds like there’ll be plenty of item management. A proper survival horror game, then, despite the first-person perspective.

There’s a teaser trailer embedded below. The game’s due out next year. Naturally, we're looking forward to the announcement of EA's inevitable The Walking Dead title next.
