Fake Trailer for ‘The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct’ Fools Internet

TWDSI

A fake trailer for Activision’s upcoming first-person shooter, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, is making the rounds online.  The trailer was created by a fan using early developmental footage from the game and fooled a host of news outlets including one of Activision’s own employees.  The bogus trailer’s original video has since been removed by its creator from YouTube.  The real The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a prequel to The Walking Dead television series on AMC.  It follows the characters Daryl and Merle Dixon as they travel through the zombie-ridden Georgia countryside to Atlanta.  The game will be released March 26th in North America and March 29th in Europe for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo’s Wii U.  Visit the official The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct website to see the game’s actual trailers.
