Telltale Announces New Game: 7 Days to Die

The Walking Dead developer Telltale Games reveals the trailer for 7 Days to Die, a new survival zombie game that’s being developed in a collaboration with The Fun Pimps.

With a second season of Game of Thrones in the pipeline, the development of three new episodes for Minecraft: Story Mode, the highly-anticipated launch of The Walking Dead: Season 3 this year, and the scheduled Summer launch of its Batman adaptation, 2016 is already shaping up to be a very busy year for Telltale Games. But after revealing yet another new game today, it appears that The Walking Dead developer’s 2016 just got even busier.

A new trailer for a new open-world survival game titled 7 Days to Die was unveiled today by the developer’s publishing branch, Telltale Publishing. After some speculation that this new project from Telltale Games was one of its new unannounced original IP, it turns out that this new game is being developed by The Fun Pimps in a publishing collaboration with Telltale Publishing. 7 Days to Die is set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by the undead, and is described as a “unique combination of first person shooter, survival horror, tower defense, and role-playing games.” The game will also feature many mechanics found in open-world games, such as crafting, looting, and exploration.
