Telltale’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Gets a New Trailer, Contest

For those of you interested in a walk-on, er likely shambling on role in a future chapter of the game, this video might be of interest. Plus details on a new mega bundle for PC preorders.

Launching later this month, The Walking Dead is Telltale’s take on Robert Kirkman’s comic and the ridiculously popular TV show about Carl, the imperiled tween of the same name. Telltale’s offering a chance for a select winner who preorders the PC/Mac versions of the game to get killed in an upcoming installment of the episodic adventure and to come back as a zombie. All you have to do is head over to the Telltale store to order it.

Here’s the elevator pitch for the game which will involve a new batch of survivors from the one featured in the show and comics:

The dead are rising! To prepare for the zombie horde, we’re hunkering down with stockpiles of new content about our upcoming game: The Walking Dead. The game, based on Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series, is about a world devastated by an undead apocalypse and the horrifying choices you’re forced to make to survive.

Also, for another 20 bucks, you can get Telltale’s “almost everything pack” which will include full seasons of:

Back to the Future
Jurassic Park
Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People
Sam and Max seasons 1-3
Puzzle Agent 1 & 2

As for console owners, you can pick up—well, order—The Walking Dead when the first episodes are released later this month at $4.99 a pop on PSN and 400 MS Points on the 360.
