Separately, AMC also announced that fans can win a role in Survival Instinct via a contest called The Walking Dead Dead Giveaway. Continuing a contest that began at the beginning of season three, AMC will reveal clues during new episodes of The Walking Dead on Sunday nights. Fans can enter the clues on the contest’s official site and a winner will be chosen each week to appear as a character in the game.
According to AMC, Terminal Reality will use photos of the winners “to create a unique character whose backstory and chilling death scene may be encountered by players during The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.” Each contest winner will appear in a different level of the game, and “there will even be a special challenge to track down all the winners.” Fans will have a chance to win during every episode between now and Sunday, December 2nd.
As described by Activision, Survival Instinct is “a do-whatever-you-need-to-survive first-person action game that brings the deep, character-driven world of AMC’s Emmy Award-winning TV series onto console gaming systems and the PC in a frightening, new way. The game puts players in the role of the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, on a haunting, unforgiving quest across the Georgia countryside to reach the supposed safety of Atlanta.
