The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct’s First Official Gameplay Trailer Drops, Pre-Order Bonuses Detailed
After tons of leaked footage, Activision has released its first official gameplay trailer for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. But that’s not all, they also revealed that GameStop and Amazon are both offering special pre-order bonuses which are outlined below. Speaking of those pre-order bonuses, players who pre-order the game from GameStop or Amazon will get a jump on the end of the world with an exclusive DLC pack. There is no doubt that Activision is trying to cash in on the huge success that Telltale Games achieved with their game based on the franchise, but I’ll be honest in saying that I don’t think they’ll pull it off. I mean, even if it is decent, it will always be second best to the riveting experience that is Telltale’s The Walking Dead.
- GameStop Herd Mode Challenge – How many frenzied flesh-eaters can you survive against before joining their ranks? Take on endless waves of walkers, each more dangerous than the last, in the all-new Herd Mode. Each wave of undead held off brings with it a new outbreak of hungry biters and new opportunities to rack up an even higher score.
- Amazon Walker Execution Pack – Give yourself an edge (or five) with this ‘unique’ weapon kit. The Amazon Walker Execution Pack adds multiple melee options to your arsenal, including a survival knife, sawtoothed machete, kukri, reinforced hatchet, and advanced machete. With ammo scarce and the undead attracted to loud noises, a sharp, silent blade might just be your most trusted companion.
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is scheduled to be released in North America on March 19 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC and on March 26 for Wii U.
