Telltale Games has announced that the first episode of The Walking Dead game, titled A New Day, will release this Wednesday.
The Walking Dead game is based on the world set in the series comics and not the TV show, and it counts as series canon as well. The game focuses around a new character called Lee Everett, who had been in prison for murder. It was a decision that was made to introduce a new story in the The Walking Dead universe instead of focusing on main protagonist, Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes.
Telltale’s Jake Rodkin spoke about the game saying:
“The Walking Dead tailors the story based on the decisions that you make. Your decisions or actions might have an effect in the episode you’re playing or might affect the entire season.
You could answer a question in a certain way and have a character become suspicious of your motives, or you could be forced to choose who to save when two people are in mortal peril but only one can be yanked back from the zombie horde. game experience.”
A New Day is the first of five episodes that make up The Walking Dead game. The episodes will cost £3.99/ €4.99 each on PSN and PC, or 400 MSP on Xbox LIVE. The complete game series can be ordered for £15.99/ €19.99.
