New Walking Dead Details and Gameplay Shamble Out

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
Now that we know The Walking Dead will be coming to XBLA, the wait seems to be taking forever. We've only seen a little bit of the game in action, but these three new walkthroughs should give us a better idea of the game's choice-oriented point-and-click gameplay. Some parts can be pretty revealing of the game's first episode, so don't watch them if you want to remain totally spoiler-free.

The five episodes will play out on a monthly basis for 400 MSP each and purchasing the first game will allow you to use it as a hub to purchase future episodes as the year goes on. Telltale is known for focusing on storytelling first, and this game is no different. Many choices you make will change the game in major ways.

For example, early on you'll have to save one young boy or another. Whoever you choose, both fathers will react differently to you and may even choose to oppose you later in the game. Everything you do will have a cause and effect, Telltale says. It should make up for the unconventional gameplay many of you had issues with.

With no release dates yet, here are the names of the five episodes:

Episode 1 – A New Day
Episode 2 – Starved for Help
Episode 3 – Long Road Ahead
Episode 4 – Around Every Corner
Episode 5 – No Time Left
Though the game is still scheduled for release sometime later this month, time really seems to be running out. Unless the game finds a Friday date, it looks like it may be waiting until next month to kick off its five-part story.
