Walking Dead: TV show actors provide vocals for Activision's FPS

Actors Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker reprise roles as the Dixon brothers

Terminal Reality has confirmed that actors from The Walking Dead TV show will provide vocals for their respective characters in the upcoming Activision-published game, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.


The developer has already casted and recorded lines with actor Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, and has Michael Rooker voicing Daryl's brother Merle.

"Our goal is to shape Daryl authentically, chronicling everything that happens to him from the initial Wildfire Global Outbreak until he joins with Rick Grimes' group at that quarry near Atlanta," said the game's creative director, Drew Haworth.

"And on the way, we'll reveal a couple of our own interesting backstory surprises that fans haven't already gleaned from the series," he teases.

While Telltale's episodic Walking Dead game channels the spirit of Robert Kirkman's comic series, Activision and Terminal Reality's first-person effort will be based on AMC's TV series.

The game is set before the events of the show and follows Daryl and Merle Dixon as they make their way to the promised safety of Atlanta, battling the zombie horde along the way.
