The Walking Dead’s second video game installment (unrelated to Telltale’s The Walking Dead episodic adventure from 2012) is about to hit consoles in a few days and so far other than knowing you play as Daryl Dixon in the events leading up to the TV show’s pilot, not much has been revealed.
Well here is a cool little tidbit to wet the appetite further, the opening credits from the game have leaked online….check ’em out below….
You’ve heard plenty about TWD game coming out sometime in 2013, that centers around the Dixon Brothers’ journey to Atlanta during the start of the zombie apocalypse, but now it is time to check out the first footage from the game, courtesy of youtube user HDDrew!
Looks pretty cool. So far The Walking Dead property has been treated with much respect regardless of the medium and it looks like that won’t change in Survival Instinct!
Yes that’s right another Walking Dead video game is on the way, totally unrelated to the TellTale series that is currently being released monthly as a 5 chapter game. This new game is going to be a First Person Shooter and you will be playing as Daryl Dixonand accompanied by his brother Merle Dixon as you embark on a trip to find survivors and possibly safety in Atlanta. Will there be co-op? Not sure yet. In fact, not many details have been revealed but what we do have is a trailer! Check it out below:
The game gets it big debut demo at SDCC 2012, however word right now is it will not be a playable demo. Bummed? Sure, but get this, if you are one of the first 100 to pre-order the game, you get a replica necklace of zombie ears just like Daryl’s from the show…that is pretty morbid…..I LOVE IT! Haha
Who’d have thought that Daryl Dixon would have ended up as complex a character as he has become. Being a character not featured in The Walking Dead comics, viewers and comic book enthusiasts alike were first introduced to his character after his older brother Merle was left on the rooftop in Atlanta. This character has become pretty well rounded and gone through a ton of growth in such a small time, not to mention a fan favorite. Norman Reedus the actor who plays Daryl answered a few questions for AMC’s blog about all things Daryl:
Q: “Chupacabra” is a pretty intense episode.
A: It’s like Deliverance meets Motorhead.
Q: In this episode, Daryl has a necklace of ears. Were you pleased with the necklace?
A: It’s a necklace of ears, man! Cutting off the ears is just Daryl getting angry and doing what he has to do to save himself. I love that he’s still like that.
Q: Last year you told us your challenge was to make a racist likeable. Now your character is a fan favorite. Have you enjoyed the switch?
A: I’ve tried to make him more of a multi-layered character — someone who can tear up and then try to knife you. He’s kind of like this wet little coyote that doesn’t know where he’s at and people are trying to reach over and pet him and he snaps back.
