Telltale Publishing – the folks responsible for the popular The Walking Dead series – have announced they are bringing 7 Ways to Die to consoles this year. The title, developed by The Fun Pimps, has proved to be a hit with PC gamers and it’s hoped that the new partnership will see this success continue with the PS4 and Xbox One iterations.
Set in an unforgiving post-apocalyptic world that’s been overrun by the undead, 7 Days to Die is an open-world survival game that combines elements of first person shooters, survival horror, tower defence, and role-playing games. It presents combat, crafting, looting, mining, exploration and character growth together in a formula that PC gamers have been enjoying for quite some time.
The console version of 7 Days to Die will include a new multiplayer mode supporting local split-screen for couch play, with additional online multiplayer modes and features being revealed in the coming weeks.
Telltale are excited about adding this new title to their impressive roster, and had the following to say in a recent statement.
Telltale Publishing seeks to bring the best and most innovative games in their genres to new audiences. 7 Days to Die has already thrilled over 1.5 million PC users worldwide, and we’re delighted to bring this game from the PC to consoles everywhere. The Fun Pimps have redefined what the survival genre can be with unrivalled world-building, crafting, and character growth. With overwhelmingly positive user feedback for the PC version, we can’t wait to expose a brand new audience to this exceptional and terrifying sandbox experience.
