The first footage from The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct didn’t look all that great. Of course, that wasn’t an official trailer as we soon found out but a fan edit of different preview videos of the game.
Now, I’ve checked over this three or four times and this new trailer is definitely official – it shows the zombie-riddled world that we know from the TV show and characters Daryl and Merle Dixon, who are the main focus of the game.
It’s better than that first video but the game still doesn’t look like it’ll amount to anything special, though the exploration of the brothers’ relationship could provide some great backstory for fans of the show. I highly doubt it’ll be as well received as the other Walking Dead game.
The game’s out in the UK on the 29th of March and if you pre-order it from GAME or GameStop in Ireland on PS3 or Xbox 360, you’ll receive the Walking Herd Survival Pack add-on, which brings with it a new game mode – with endless herds of zombies, naturally – and extra weapons for use in the story mode.
