Telltale Publishing today announced an exciting new partnership with developers The Fun Pimps that will see the online survival zombie game, 7 Days to Die, release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June. The game amassed a large following on PC with an immersive open-world survival experience set in a brutal post-apocalyptic environment that provides a thrilling combination of first-person shooter, survival horror and RPG mechanics to deliver a truly unique survival experience.
[quote cite=”Steve Allison, SVP Publishing at Telltale, Inc.”]”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 unrivaled 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.” [/quote]
Telltale will also bring with them a great opportunity for fans of The Walking Dead series as those that pre-order 7 Days to Die on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will get exclusive access to 5 character skins from the hit episodic series, including Lee Everett and Michonne.
[quote cite=”Richard Huenink, Co-Founder of The Fun Pimps”]”7 Days to Die is a labor of love for our small group of games industry veterans. After a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, we’re grateful to have had a wonderful response from our active community of Steam Early Access users; now, our partners at Telltale Publishing are enabling us to get the game in front of new survivors across the globe. We’re very excited that Telltale brought us together with the folks at Iron Galaxy, to build the game collaboratively and specifically for consoles. They have a stellar track record, and have been incredible partners in ensuring a perfect translation that includes new features and content not seen in the PC version.” [/quote]
Launching in June the console versions of 7 Days to Die will introduce a brand new multiplayer mode that supports local split-screen co-op play, alongside the original online multiplayer modes available in the PC release.
