Lets see a 49.99 game with tons of 12.99 dlc's with fewer than a handful good maps, then is no thx. Its after all a game published by Mr.Kontiks company, you know the one who ruined Blizzard!

Seriously? Yet another zombie game? That's such a boring and repetitive genre. How can you swallow the same stuff over and over again?

I know people might get upset for this but cmon, the game will be horrible.

Knowing activision it will be just another fast paced shoot 10000 zombies as fast as you can. New dlc packs containing 1-2 maps and a new gun every few months.

I feel sorry for people who get hyped about these kind of news, all you going to get is bad game with bad mechanics aimed for casual audience.

Quote:
. Players will take the role of Daryl and fight their way across the rolling southern countryside by either fighting the zombie hordes with weapons, or by using stealth to avoid detection altogether

Sounds fun, especially in CO-OP

ugh...

single player...

if you want a good zombie apocalypse survival experience, there should be multiplayer co-op campaign...

it seems like the main campaign is done with AI co-op which in my experience it's hit or miss...MOSTLY miss...

Zombie FPS games tend to be dull unless there is some sort of twist to it. At-least that is the case when it comes to single player games. Sadly what we are likely going to see here is no actual struggles to survive but more than likely a linear path of just walking shoot zombies and maybe some other people. I highly doubt this game under Activision. The management of food for example is likely just managing healing/first aid kits.

What a real zombie apocalypse game should be is a game with no end until your death. Having to deal with hunger, illness, needing to sleep, bandits, and random encounters which can be beneficial or not. If the game is single player only any character should be able to die at anytime without ending the game with the exception of yourself of course. If multi-player the game continues on until all players are dead. Randomly generated lands should be created if a player attempts to explore outside what the devs have made, making the game endless exploration. There should be more than this but I think these are the bare minimum features basically any apocalypse survival game should have.

Ah, good game, or I mean mod. As if the zombies weren't frightening enough, you also have human players. I recall someone running me over with a jeep playing the Yakety Sax through the "direct communication" at night.

I also recall finding a Lee Enfield and being excited about it. Then, something like this happened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mr7hloIWdok&feature=yout...

And it's cheaper to set up than this new game. All it costs you is a copy of ArmA II

Dear Activision-blizzard,

Please leave zombie genre alone and stick with your dead beat horse call of duty. You are only going to continue to saturate the gaming market with half ass products unless you return to your pre 2000 era where you actually thrived to please people in other words us the gamers (customers) by making good games instead of current attitude where you thrive to please your clueless stockholders and marketing teams.

Sincerely,

If you want a zombie game, look into ARMA 2 and find the Zombie Mod. You have to find food and water. You can bleed out if you don't attend to wounds. If you're hurt you'll have difficulty aiming if you don't use pain meds. Make too much noise and zombies swarm to you. Also it's very cut-throat, some people team up while others may use you as zombie bait. And best of all, it's available now...

It's getting boring with this zombie stuff, it was great before, but now can we have something else?

Anyone want's a fun game needs to check out Flying WildHog's Hard Reset, developed for the PC, this game kicks ass. No more taking cover, just pure shooting like the Quake days. It's set in the year 2436 so it's futuristic and yet has a touch of steam punk architecture which for some may remind them of Bioshock.

FPS isn't the type of genre I think of when I hear TWD. I've read the comic and currently watching the show and it's well known that TWD isn't about killing zombies but about character development. A good genre for this series would be some sort of open world RPG that heavily revolves around the survival of you the player and your party. Kind of like DayZ but with the ability to recruit companions (much like Fallout where you venture into the world and can recruit people to join you).

It might be fun... I won't play it if it is single player only though. That's all fail.

I would be a lot more excited about this if VALVE were making the game though.

No thanks, I love "The Walking Dead" series, but I've been fooled enough times with games Activision branded. Diablo III is the last time I'll be fooled by this company.

I would think the walking dead would mean an MMO. The whole story is about surviving, collecting resources, and protecting the group for the zombies plus other groups. Collecting weapons, ammo, gas, food, medical supplies, and other you can trust would make a very original MMO theme.

'In addition to fighting zombies and taking on companions, players will have to deal with managing food, ammunition and supplies as they make their journey. '

Can't they just make an ARMA Mod based on this? Oh wait they already did.

HELL YES ! we need a Zombie Survival RPG , maybe even an action rpg , I see a blend of skyrim , and dragon age would work great with this. skyrim action and streamlining , with dragon age's indepth party commands and story line style . i had high hopes for dead island being that game after seeing it's e3 coverage , and though the game was fun i was disapointed because of it's linear nature and lack of real RPG dialouge options.
