'The Walking Dead' Episodes 1 and 2 Free For PlayStation Plus Subscribers

Telltale's episodic The Walking Dead series has been pretty big hit, but those of you waiting for a deal to snag your copy on PS3 have made a wise decision. Yesterday Sony revealed that PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to get both episode 1 and episode 2 for free.

Episode 1: A New Day and Episode 2: Starved for Help typically run for about $5 on the PlayStation Network, but according to the Playstation Blog, both episodes will be added to PS Plus subscribers' Instant Game Collection on August 7th.

Telltale's The Walking Dead takes place in the comic book world created by Robert Kirkman, but follows a unique set of characters rather then the characters featured in the books. However, bits and pieces from each storyline may crossover from time to time.

The game has been a critical success and recently made it's way from home consoles and PC over to Apple's iOS devices. Episode 1 & 2 are available now and Telltale has said that episode 3 should be available “in the middle of August,” though a specific release date has been confirmed.
