The Walking Dead: The Game Released!

The walkers have been released on Steam and PSN today! With the sterling reviews from XBOX Magazine and Gaming Blend  and from what I've seen of game play thus far, "The Walking Dead: The Game" looks utterly fantastic and I personally cannot wait to play it!

Synopsis from Steam:

Gain access to the full season [5 episodes] of The Walking Dead by purchasing the Season Pass, which will act as your gateway to obtaining all of the episodes in a dark and emotional season where every decision and action can result in the entire story of the game changing around you.

Episode 1 is available immediately upon purchasing the full season with the remaining episodes being delivered monthly thereafter. Updates will automatically be downloaded and applied via the Steam client, which will allow new episodes to appear in the in-game menu.

The Walking Dead is a five-part game series set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series. Play as Lee Everett, a convicted criminal, who has been given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. With corpses returning to life and survivors stopping at nothing to maintain their own safety, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world gone to hell.

Key Features:
  • A tailored game experience – Live with the profound and lasting consequences of the decisions that you make in each episode. Your actions and choices will affect how your story plays out across the entire series.
  • Experience events, meet people and visit locations that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes.
  • Meet Glenn before he heads to Atlanta, explore Hershel’s farm before Rick and his group of survivors arrive and before the barn becomes a notorious location in Walking Dead lore.
  • You’ll be forced to make decisions that are not only difficult, but that will require you to make an almost immediate choice. There’s no time to ponder when the undead are pounding the door down!

All 5 episodes are available for purchase as a package deal on Steam  for $24.99.

You can also purchase all 5 episodes on PlayStation Network  for $19.99 or purchase the episodes individually for $4.99 a piece. Please note that PSN requires that you download the demo of "The Walking Dead: The Game" onto your PlayStation 3 prior to purchasing it. This is because when you download the demo, you are actually downloading the entire episode and its files onto your gaming console. You purchase the game from the demo screen in order to unlock the full version and play the entire episode.

Coming soon to XBOX360!
