Update: Earlier this week, we posted a story on a brand new trailer that was released for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. As it turns out, the trailer was not official at all but rather a fan made concoction brewed up with bits and pieces of gameplay from an IGN show. The original article has been corrected below, and thank you to Kotaku for the correction.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct was first announced over the summer, but today marks the first time we've actually been able to see the game in action. Terminal Reality has released a brand new trailer, showing some actual gameplay from their upcoming first-person shooter.
If you haven't been following along, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct follows the story of Daryl and Merle Dixon, two of the characters from AMC's hit Walking Dead series. Whereas Telltale Games' acclaimed series based on The Walking Dead followed the events in the comic book series, Terminal Reality is focusing on the AMC show itself. This key difference is important to us, as it really shows that there is a market for both games (which really couldn't be any different, when you look at them).
The trailer looks to show off some stealth aspects of the game, as you can see the player character sneaking past zombies in several scenes, rather than taking them head on. At other times, however, they are being engaged directly with melee weapons and we even get a glimpse of what appears to be a shotgun in the hands of the player. Terminal Reality hasn't spilled the beans on all of the weapons that will be available to players in the game, or how those weapons are going to be acquired, but it seems to have an open-world feel to it in the trailer. Just how big that world is remains to be seen, but we're glad to be getting some gameplay.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think! To the Walking Dead faithful out there, how do you feel about this upcoming first-person shooter?
