The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is the latest entry in the suddenly crowded first-person zombie survival genre; this short gameplay video shows off Terminal reality’s take.

Licensed by AMC rather than franchise creator Robert Kirkman – somewhat embarrassingly, as it happens – the shooter is based on the TV show, rather than the comics. It follows the adventures of Daryl and Merle Dixon, who will be voiced by their respective actors, and takes place prior to the show’s timeline.

Terminal Reality is very proud of its plans to have the zombies behave as they do in the show’s canon, some of which you can see in action in the footage below.

Survival Instinct is expected sometime this year on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Update: The trailer is an unofficial fan edit.
