Feast Your Eyes on The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

For a game that’s less than two months away, it’s telling that Activision has only just released the first trailer for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. Sure, we got that rough footage earlier in the year, but believe it or not, that was fan-made. Thankfully, this new trailer is official, even if it still doesn’t look very good.

In addition to the video, the publisher also took a moment to confirm that pre-orders for the TV show tie-in will be rewarded with the ‘Walker Herd Survival Pack’. The add-on includes the groan-worthy ‘Herd’ mode, a twist on the more popular ‘Horde’ mode, where you're tasked with staving off endless waves of the undead. Stop us if you think that you’ve heard this one before.

Looks lousy to me. It seems Activision have completely ignored what makes TWD series great - story, suspense - and just gone with what they 'know'... loud, OTT action. It basically looks like yet another CoD game with The Walking Dead logo and a couple of character models recognisable from the show.

Still, I'm happy - at least I won't have to buy an Activision game.

I know it was based on the graphic novels rather than the TV show, but even so, Telltale captured the essence of the show perfectly with their game; I guess I'll just wait for the next season of that instead.
