For those who have been playing the PC, XBox LIVE or PSN versions of the episodic game The Walking Dead, this should serve as a wake-up call to your remaining… living… friends: The Walking Dead will be in retail form for PS3 and XBox 360 in early December.
In disc format, the retail releases will include all the Season 1 episodes, including the upcoming season finale “No Time Left.” The standard release will retail for $29.99, but those who pre-order can reserve the collector’s edition for $69.99, which includes the game, the collector’s edition box, and The Walking Dead Compendium One, which features the first 48 issues of the original comic book series created by Robert Kirkman.
The Walking Dead has been hailed by critics as one of the most acclaimed releases of the year, including several awards from IGN, PC Gamer, and the Golden Joystick award. The game tells a new story of Lee Everett, a man given a second chance at life amongst the dead on earth. Beginning when series protagonist Rick Grimes is still in a coma, Everett takes an orphaned girl named Clementine under his wing as they try to survive a world overrun by flesh-eating “walkers.”
The final episode, “No Time Left,” will be released very soon; however, no details have been released.
