After some really rough early footage of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct was revealed, Activision went dark on releasing any video of the zombie shooter until today when it unleashed its first official trailer a scant month and a half before its release on 29th March (or 26th March, if you live in North America).
As for the footage, it looks... better, albeit not terribly impressive. Still, it's newer, so it should give players a better idea as to how Terminal Reality's take on AMC's take on Robert Kirkman's franchise is shaping up.
Elsewhere, Activision announced that those who pre-order The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct on Xbox 360 or PS3 at GAME or GameStop Ireland will receive the Walker Herd Survival Pack, which contains the pun-tastic Herd Mode where you stave off endless waves of the undead. The add-on will also grant new weapons in the story mode including a survival knife, sawtoothed machete, kukri, reinforced hatchet and advanced machete.
A word of warning: If you do get the add-on, be sure to install it before starting the game as you won't be able to access the new weapons in a game already in progress.
No price has been announced for the Walker Herd Survival Pack for those who don't pre-order Survival Instinct.
