Terminal Reality and Activision announced some incentive for folks to pre-order Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. Those who pre-order the game will get the first official DLC, the Walker Herd Survival Pack.

As a press release describes: "In this exclusive DLC pack you will have access to the all-new Herd Mode where you need to fight for survival against endless waves of walkers. The dead need no rest - will you? In addition, fight off walkers in the story mode with a new arsenal of melee weapons including a survival knife, sawtoothed machete, kukri, reinforced hatchet and advanced machete. With ammo scarce and the undead attracted to loud noises, a sharp, silent blade might just be your most trusted companion (note: a new game must be started to access the extra weapons)."

Check out the trailer below!

At the moment, the pre-order offer seems to be limited to overseas, with players getting the DLC if they order from GAME in the UK, or GameStop in Ireland.

The game is directly based on "The Walking Dead" TV show, and follows the Dixon brothers on a haunting, unforgiving journey across the Georgia countryside. Players will need to tread carefully on this desperate quest, scrounging for food, water, and ammunition to survive against nightmares both living and undead. Both Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker have been recruited by Activision to voice their respective characters in the upcoming game.

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will launch on March 29 on Wii U, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
