7 Days to Die release date set for consoles

Pre-orders get The Walking Dead skins.

Survival game 7 Days to Die will arrive on PS4 and Xbox One on 1st July, via Telltale Game's publishing division.

Those in North America will receive it three days earlier on 28th June.

7 Days to Die is a genre hodgepodge of first-person shooter, tower defence, survival horror and RPG. The sandbox game drops players into a world, naked and unarmed, and they must scavenge for supplies, craft gear, build a shelter, deal with cold, heat, hunger and thirst, and ward off predatory animals and zombies. It's a jungle out there.

This console edition will feature both split-screen and online co-op with Iron Galaxy handling the port.

Developed by the Dallas-based The Fun Pimps, 7 Days to Die has sold over 1.5m copies on PC, where it is still in Steam Early Access.

Those who pre-order 7 Days to Die on console will receive The Walking Dead-themed skins for Lee Everett and Michonne, as Telltale is publishing this.
