"7 Days to Die" to be released to PS4 and Xbox One in Summer 2016.Official Telltale Publishing Facebook page

Telltale Games has announced the arrival of "7 Days to Die," an open-world survival video game to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, sometime in the summer of 2016.

Telltale Games is well known for its games that are based on zombie survival, like "The Walking Dead" series. And "7 Days to Die" is set in what the official blog post says, "brutally unforgiving post-apocalyptic world," overwhelmed by the undead infestation. The players are promised an open-world setting.

The blog goes on to state that the game is a unique mixture of first person shooter, survival horror, tower defence and role-playing games. This game features combat, crafting, looting, mining, exploration and character growth. Hence it is not a typical Telltale Games video game.

The game will also have a new multiplayer mode supporting local split-screen, and additional online multiplayer modes. The company promised it would share more details regarding "7 Days to Die" in the coming weeks. It assured the game will support "exciting" DLC content, post-launch.

The game is being developed in collaboration with the independent developer, The Fun Pimps, and Telltale Publishing.

Telltale had released an early alpha version of the game in 2014 for PC, Mac and Linux. The blog said the game already had 1.5 million PC users.

Currently, Telltale seems to have its hands full with plans of working on the second season of "Game of Thrones," development of three new episodes for "Minecraft: Story Mode," "The Walking Dead: Season 3" and a Batman adaptation for this summer.
