Activision has announced that a first-person shooter based on The Walking Dead is in development, coming to us via the fine folks at Terminal Reality.
A separate project from Telltale Games' episodic adventure, the FPS tells the tale of Daryl Dixon and his brother Merle (wait, the racist guys!?) as they make their way to Atlanta. Players will have the option of tackling zombies head-on, or using stealth to avoid their undead nastiness.
It's not all sneaking and shooting, however. Management of supplies is crucial as players face a scarcity of food and ammunition. A number of other characters will be encountered too, though their motivations will vary and tough decisions will have to be made.
The game's planned for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, and is scheduled for 2013.
