Your First Look at The Walking Dead: 400 Days

Telltale Games has already revealed that there's more zombie apocalypse drama on the way. Now we've got a first look. Here's some relevant info from the press release:

Available this summer, The Walking Dead: 400 Days will be available for purchase on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation Network, as an in-app purchase for compatible iOS devices, and on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store and other digital outlets.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days chronicles the horrific aftermath of the undead outbreak through the eyes of five new characters as they struggle to survive the first 400 days of the apocalypse. Playable in any order, the five connected short stories are centered in and around a Georgia truck stop, where players will be thrust into horrifying situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions.

The Walking Dead: Season One is coming to the PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system and will include The Walking Dead: 400 Days. Featuring hybrid touch controls unique to PS Vita, fans can now take the apocalypse on the road and enjoy the entirety of Season One in one package.



(*Spoilers*) Just hope the conclusion to this (and, subsequently, season 2) is better than Season 1. The ending for Lee and Clem was, in my opinion, crap. I learned a long time ago that Kirkman's universe doesn't so much thrive on the "Human story" but rather on how much pain and misery one can inflict on the characters.

However, Telltale didn't need to follow that route, they could have found a healthy balance of poignancy and resolution as opposed to beating one over the head with tragedy to the extent that it all amounted to nothing in the end. Even with the Zed-Genre, I don't feel you have to go that route to give the story or characters meaning or substance.

However, the game did incredibly well so obviously people liked what TT did with season 1. Regardless, hope they go for something a little different this time out. Lee and Clem deserved better than what they got in the end.
