Any advantage could mean the difference between life and death in the terrifying world of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, where every path, action, and choice has a consequence. Activision and Terminal Reality today announced that 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:

  •  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 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. The game follows the mysterious, crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, brought to life by TV series star Norman Reedus, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, voiced by Michael Rooker, on a haunting, unforgiving journey across the Georgia countryside. Players will need to tread carefully on this desperate quest, scrounging for food, water, and ammunition to survive against nightmares both living and undead. 

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is scheduled to be released in North America on March 19 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC and on March 26 for Wii U. It is rated ?M? for Mature by the ESRB.  For more information, or ?Like? The Walking Dead on Facebook ( Herd Mode is unlockable for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 exclusively through Gamestop, and the Walker Execution Pack is available exclusively through Amazon.
