Telltale’s episodic adaptation of “The Walking Dead” has received rave reviews and was even awarded “Game of the Year” during Spike TVs VGAs. The game is available on multiple platforms, but those of you haven’t jumped in on the action just yet now have the chance to do it for free. “The Walking Dead Episode 1: A New Day” is currently available for free on iPhone and iPad.
“The Walking Dead” on iOS introduces a brand new story set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series featuring Sheriff Rick Grimes. In “Episode 1: A New Day,” players begin their journey as Lee Everett, a man who’s been given a second chance at life in a world that has gone to Hell. His sole mission is to protect an orphaned girl named Clementine, but we soon learn that the undead are not the only things to fear in a world that has crumbled.
What separates Telltale’s game from other titles based on Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead” is the fact that it’s not just another shoot’em up. Gameplay will have you exploring, solving problems, making meaningful decisions and enduring a constant fight for survival as the undead are pounding on your door.
The first “season” is comprised of 5 separate episodes, which can be purchased individually for $4.99, or as “Multi-Pack” for $14.99. Head over to the App Store and get the download started while you still have a chance to save some money.
