For all those naysayers out there that worry Telltale Games has put too much on their plate, grab your pitchforks – or should I say spears? Not really though, as the latest game Telltale has just announced, 7 Days to Die, isn’t actually being developed by the Telltale crew. Instead, under the label Telltale Publishing, the point and click developer is taking a stab at supporting other developer’s ventures.
The announcement of Telltale Publishing supporting 7 Days to Die was revealed during a live action trailer that dropped today. The title, originally released on Steam Early Access back in December 2013, was developed by The Fun Pimps. It appears as though the team at Iron Galaxy will be helping to bring the title over to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Here’s the official description for 7 Days to Die:
“Set in a brutally unforgiving post-apocalyptic world overrun by the undead, 7 Days to Die is an open-world survival game that is a unique combination of first person shooter, survival horror, tower defense, and role-playing games. It presents combat, crafting, looting, mining, exploration, and character growth, in a way that has seen a rapturous response from fans worldwide, generating many thousands of hours of YouTube and other streaming video content.”
The live action trailer does a great job of showing what type of gameplay you can expect in the console releases, even though we unfortunately don’t even get a glimpse of what the game looks like on consoles at this point. Telltale Publishing has promised that “the console version of 7 Days to Die adds a new multiplayer mode supporting local split-screen for couch play,” and that “additional online multiplayer modes and features will be revealed in the coming weeks.”
