New FPS The Walking Dead game coming

Activision is working on making a new The Walking Dead video game, which will be a first-person shooter. It is not related to Telltale's The Walking Dead episode games. According to IGN, this new game will have a story around Daryl and Merle Dixon before they meet up in Atlanta with survivors from season 1 of the TV series. The game will be released in 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

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."
