First Episode Of The Walking Dead Game Releasing This Week

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.

  1. PS+ discount by any chance????

  2. Sub headline of the day. Well done Aran :)

  3. These things always seem to end up free on PS+ or have a massive discount (or both) a while after the whole series is released. So I think this is one to definitely wait out. However, a decent PS+ discount straight away could be tempting…

  4. Aw, I didn’t know this was episodic content. Boo. :(

    Was kinda looking forward to it too.

    • What’s wrong with it being episodic?

      • Perhaps that you can’t play the whole game together unless you wait for the last episode? I feel like it’s unlikely that I’ll get this until there’s a bundle with all the episodes available, I’m just not into playing part of a game and then waiting for the rest.

      • Yeah its pretty much that, plus you either have to pay a lesser one off cost & not get all of the content there & then, or you pay a higher cost by buying each episode as they come out. Plus there is the fact that if you want to progress further in the game you can’t, as the next episode hasn’t been released as yet. I like to dictate how much i play of a game, not have a release schedule do that for me.

        Plus i prefer my releases whole & in boxes where possible, but that’s a different discussion. :)

        Basically, i got stung when i was younger by those magazines that come out (usually at the beginning of the year) that have something that you are supposed to collect each month (lets say it eventually makes a model for example) – I have found that they usually only release a couple of editions, discover it isn’t profitable for them & bin the whole thing after you only have two teeth of the bottom jaw of a raptor skull (if you are lucky – its usually two random pieces that don’t go together at all!).

  5. Decent price, lets hope it is worth the amount. Loved the Sam and Max / Monkey Island episodes they did, but curious to see how that translates into Zombie Horde

  6. Would love to see a trial. Still haven’t got round to finishing Sam and Max and BTTF so i doubt i’ll be getting this.

    • I’m pretty certain this isn’t a point and click game like S&M (NO NOT THAT TYPE OF S&M) and BTTF.

      • Oh, i was hoping it was as certain TSAers have been asking me to ask a staff member. *hides dodgy S&M Resident Evil Posters*

  7. Oh, i’m disappointed that it’s going to be episodic as chances are it will be a few hours long. I don’t hate the idea just dislike it as i have to wait for every episode to come out and hope that i can buy them all in one go. Or in the case of valve, hope the publisher knows how to count to 3.

    Wonder if this will be like the old Resident Evils before it become action oriented?
