Activision has announced that actors Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker have signed on to bring their talents to The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, currently in-development at Terminal Reality.
The actors, who play Daryl and Merle Dixon respectively, will be taking up their roles from The Walking Dead AMC series in Activision's upcoming survival game. The story in the game takes place before the events of the AMC series and follows Daryl and his brother Merle as they make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta. Rather than being based on the graphic novel series, Terminal Reality are building their game around the universe of The Walking Dead TV series.
Bringing in Reedus and Rooker was important to Terminal Reality, as they strive to deliver 'an engrossing, original experience that stays authentic to the characters, tone and storyline' of The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is set to release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in 2013. Stay tuned to FPS General for more information as it comes in.
