Pre-order The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct at GameStop, Get Exclusive ‘Herd Mode’ DLC and a Walker Ear Keychain

We’re still waiting on some official gameplay videos from publisher Activision and developer Terminal Reality for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, but if you want to pre-order the game without seeing it in action, GameStop will be giving you some exclusive DLC and a Walker Ear keychain (no picture, unfortunately).

That DLC is called the Herd Mode Challenge and it has you fighting endless waves of walkers in the new Herd Mode. The description states that ‘each wave of undead held off brings with it a new outbreak of hungry biters and new opportunities to rack up an even higher score’, meaning that this is basically a Horde mode.

Since this is the first we’re hearing of any sort of ‘Herd Mode’ for Survival Instinct, it remains to be seen if everyone will get access to the mode, or if you have to pre-order the game to get Herd Mode.

We checked the other obvious retailers to see if they would be carrying any other DLC and found that no one else is offering bonuses of any sort right now, though a pre-order campaign with each store offering different content could be in the works.

As soon as we hear something official from Activision about anything to do with The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct before it releases on March 26th (a gameplay video, Herd Mode confirmation, pre-orders bonuses, multiplayer possibilities, etc.), we’ll let you know.

Does the idea of a horde mode in this game have you intrigued? Let us know in the comments below.
