Back during E3, Telltale Games announced a downloadable bookend to their popular and well-respected take on "The Walking Dead." E3 feels like it happened years ago already, and "The Walking Dead: 400 Days" has zoomed upon us, almost unnoticed. According to the game's official Facebook page, the newest digital foray into Robert Kirkman's undead hellscape is coming out over the next few days for your platform of choice.
Here's the skinny:
The Walking Dead: 400 Days release dates are as follows:
- Tuesday, July 2nd – PlayStation Network on PS3 (SCEA, North America)
- Wednesday, July 3rd – PC/Mac (Steam,Telltale Games Store, Worldwide)
- Friday, July 5th – Xbox Live (Worldwide)
- Thursday, July 11th – iOS App Store (Worldwide)
"400 Days" takes place after the five episodes of the first "season" of Telltale's "Walking Dead" series and promises to reflect players' previous choices. Similarly, choices made in "400 Days" -- itself a collection of five different short stories that all take place during the first year of the zombie threat -- will lead players into Season Two, the release date for which hasn't been announced.
The five vignettes of "400 Days" can be played in any order, but be advised: none of them have anything to do with Lee or Clementine, according to the game's FAQ.
"The Walking Dead" 400 Days" will cost, give or take, $5.00, unless you bought Season 1 from the Telltale Online Store. It that case, it's free.
