The Walking Dead Season 2 Shambling To Xbox One and PS4
Robert Kirkman must be a proud man to look out upon the Walking Dead franchise and see what is available for his fans. After becoming a stunning success as a critically acclaimed graphic novel on Skybound, The Walking Dead is seeing a huge surge in popularity due to its various other manifestations. This time, the buzz is about The Walking Dead: Season Two – A Telltale Games Series! Oh my darling Clementine!
True to their name, TellTale Games has crafted their own Game of the Year award winning bubble within the Walking Dead universe with Season 1 and have recently finished releasing the final bloody fifth episode of Season 2. With the season complete, TellTale is ready to release the full season in collected physical form in stores on October 21st for the Xbox 360 and PS3. They will also release this season for the Xbox One and PS4 on the same day. The physical version of the Playstation Vita will be in stores on November 4th.
Now for those next gen owners that were foolish enough not to buy the ‘current’ gen version of season 1 but want to get season 2, TellTale has kindly decided to oblige by releasing the first season in physical and digital form on the Xbox One and PS4 a week before Season 2 drops on October 14th. This next gen copy will also include the special sixth episode, ‘400 Days,’ which tells the story of the first 400 days of the apocalypse from the perspective of multiple survivors who also appear within Clementine’s continued story in The Walking Dead: Season Two.
Bloody, story driven, and filled with moral and survival themed decisions, this series continues to pull on heart strings and cause story and game writers to catch a healthy case of envy! The series has even managed to be used in some classrooms in an attempt to discuss ethics and narrative. I’m sure using the question of whether to help someone commit suicide could spark some interesting debates regardless of whether it involves the zombie apocalypse!
