Fans of the TV show and comic book more than likely have one thing in common- they’ve all been waiting to sink their teeth into the official game from Telltale.
For PSN, PC, and Mac players that wait is over as episode 1 ‘A New Day’ dropped today. The game accounts an original story set during the comic book’s dark vision of a zombie apocalypse instead of following along with the familiar characters from the fiction’s main plotline. Episodes of the game will be launching throughout the Summer on all major download platforms.
And that means that Xbox fans need not fear (‘cept maybe the zombies), because your game will be clawing it’s way into homes ‘very soon’. Which I’m just gonna assume means ‘tomorrow’.
Episode one, ‘A New Day’ and the following four episodes deliver an experience tailored by the decisions that each player makes, leading to multiple paths through the story. Players take on the role of Lee Everett, a man convicted of murder, now given newfound freedom and a chance at redemption in a world devastated by the undead. Intense life or death situations will force the player to explore the darker sides of human nature, and they will meet familiar characters and visit locations from the world created by Robert Kirkman, foreshadowing the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead comics. The first episode will sell for 400 Microsoft® Points on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, $4.99 on PlayStation Network and on PC and Mac as a season pass covering all five episodes for $24.99 from the Telltale Online Store and other digital distribution outlets.
