It’s time to get your Redneck on!
Terminal Reality, who’s developing a new video game for Activision, announced today that Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker will both reprise their roles in the upcoming video game The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, as the redneck brothers Daryl and Merle Dixon from AMC and Robert Kirkman‘s hit TV show, The Walking Dead.
The game takes place before the events that lead the two brothers to join up with the survivor group from the television show just outside Atlanta. Players will take on the role of crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon. It’s a first person action adventure type game with plenty of zombie killing. Both Dixon characters are what this NerdBastard would consider break-out characters in the popular show, one for being such an evil asshole and the other for being the silent, rough around the edges, reluctant hero.
Norman Reedus already had a Boondock Saints fan club -The Boondock Betties, but after the first season of The Walking Dead aired, groups like the Reedusluts, Reedus Renegades, Dixon’s Vixens, Dixon’s Dolls, Reegals, and Norman’s Nymphos quickly sprouted up. The ladies do like the bad boys with hearts of gold.
Terminal Reality’s The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct video game hits store shelves in 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
