Activision and Terminal Reality are proud to announce that series stars Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker will reprise
their respective roles as fan-favorites Daryl and Merle Dixon in their upcoming The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.
Their addition is central to developer Terminal Reality's commitment to delivering an engrossing, original experience that

thriller ever produced for television.”

before the events of the AMC show, following Daryl and his brother Merle on a gruesome journey to reach the supposed safety
of Atlanta as the world around them ends. Reedus and Rooker will bring life to their characters' desperate, unforgiving struggle
