Telltale Games are best known for working on adventure games like The Walking Dead but their next is quite different
Telltale Games have become synonymous with a certain kind of storyled game, with The Walking Dead, Minecraft, Game of Thrones, Tales from the Borderlands and a bunch of other properties over the last couple of year. But their latest is going to be pretty different.
Word is emerging that the company will be helping to publish a title called 7 Days to Die. It's still going to be dealing with zombies - they're still very popular in the gaming world - but instead of a story driven world it sounds like an out-and-out survival game. Here's the list of what you'll get up to in the game.
Explore & Craft – Huge, unique and rich environments, offering the freedom to play the game any way you want while you craft and repair weapons, clothes, armor, tools, vehicles, and more. Build – Take over a ruin, or build from the ground-up. Design your fortress to include traps and defensive positions to survive the undead – the world is fully destructible and moldable. Cooperate or Compete – Includes two player split screen mode, with support for up to 8 players online, in Player versus Player, co-op survival, or co-op creative modes. Create – Unleash your creativity and build the ultimate world by yourself friends. Enjoy unlimited access to nearly 400 in-game items and 1,200 unique building blocks in creative mode. Improve – Increase your skills in a multitude of active and passive disciplines. 7 to Die is the only true survival RPG with nearly 50 multi-tiered skill and perk groups.
Quite why Telltale is getting into publishing third party titles is beyond us, especially in a genre this well-worn, but the word is that the game will launch in June 2016.
