Those looking to pick up the upcoming Walking Dead game by Activision. Pre-ordering the game will net you some new gear and a new mode.

From the press release:

    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 on Xbox 360® or PlayStation® 3 from GAME (UK) or GameStop (Republic of Ireland) will get a jump on the end of the world with an exclusive DLC pack:

    · Walker Herd Survival Pack – In this exclusive DLC pack you will have access to the all-new Herd Mode where you need to fight for survival against endless waves of walkers. The dead need no rest – will you? In addition, fight off walkers in the story mode with a new arsenal of melee weapons 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 (note: a new game must be started to access the extra weapons).

    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 March for the Xbox 360®, PlayStation® 3, Wii U™, and PC. It is rated PEGI 18.
