Next month Telltale Games, the developer of the Back to the Future and Jurassic Park games is bringing us another episodic series based on The Walking Dead. It will be delivered in five episodes, each taking roughly 2 hours to complete, and will feature many of the things Telltale fans have come to expect from their games. Only this time the quick time events that permeated Jurassic Park will take a backseat to more immersive gaming. You’ll be able to control your character, Lee Everett, as he travels to the Deep South, meeting new and familiar faces along the way.
Fans of the TV series and the comic books will have plenty to love here as Telltale’s focus is on capturing the emotional storytelling and character development the series is known for. Whether or not you’ve enjoyed their past work, there’s no denying that that’s a department where the developer excels. Head past the break for more info and a brand new trailer!
The Walking Dead releases on a horde of platforms next month, including the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and Wii. The rest of the episodes will follow with a new one being released each month. Each episode will cost $4.99, or 400 MSP, or you can nab yourself a season pass and get them all for $22.49. Those who choose that last option will be entered for a chance to get a cameo in the fourth episode as killable character.
So tell me, how excited are you for some more Walking Dead? Also, who here’s kept up with the TV series? Feel free to geek out over how incredible the finale was in the comments below.
