Telltale Games announced earlier this year The Walking Dead seasons 1 and 2 would be making their way to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and a boxed retail version for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita owners. Today, Telltale has announced these versions of its critically-acclaimed series will become available starting in October.

The Walking Dead will be making its debut on current-gen systems in digital form as well for those of you who prefer to download as much of their gaming content on their hard drives. Retail disc versions of The Walking Dead will come in two separate packages for each season, with the first season including the 400 Days DLC.

As for last-gen, the first season of The Walking Dead is already available at retail, so today’s announcement will just be bringing the second season to store shelves.

If you haven’t played either season of The Walking Dead, or have a friend who hasn’t, then this would your best option this holiday season in order to experience both seasons all in one shot. Trust us when we say you won’t be sorry.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2 Review (Xbox 360)

Like any great TV show or episodic story-telling, playing the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead is an absolute must in order to get the full experience from season 2. After such high praise and critical-acclaim for the previous 6 episodes, expectations were high for the next 5 episodes. If you’re unfamiliar with the franchise or the types of games Telltale has been pumping out, The Walking Dead is a point-and-click, choice driven game. It’s more of an interactive story than a video game, but the choices you make will affect the story and put it in different paths. You can play an episode and compare notes to a friend who has played the same episode and realize you two have experienced a totally different part of the story — and that’s really cool.

Season 2 revolves around Clementine who played as a supporting role in the first season and she is a totally transformed person this time around. She has matured greatly, but the game reminds you she’s still a kid with moments like awkward exposure to sexual and drug/alcohol related topics. It really humanizes her and you feel her pain as she is forced to grow faster in this dark and hallow world.

Blood-pumping, anxiety-inducing and haunting. I can go on and on about the many emotions brought upon me throughout season 2, because it was such a trip. Each episode put Clementine and the group of zombie walker survivors in more dire situations where the stakes became bigger and decision making tougher. By the end, I was struggling even behind the safety of my video game controller to make a choice that would determine the fate of the on-screen characters who I have become attached to emotionally.

GTA 5 DLC, Resident Evil, Walking Dead and more PS4 zombie games teased

The Official U.K. Playstation Magazine has teased several PS4 games that will be appearing in the upcoming issue of the publication. According to a report from Game Chup on Aug. 24, the magazine posted a sneak peek at the cover of the next issue, revealing that it will be based around the idea of a “zombie outbreak.” One of the video games that were mentioned was “GTA 5.”

No official announcement has been made by Rockstar Games in regards to possibly releasing a zombie DLC for the fifth main installment of the “Grand Theft Auto” series. However, fans have found several hints from the game’s data files. With the “GTA 5” being a part of the zombie outbreak coverage from the Official U.K. Playstation Magazine, an official announcement could be made in the very near future.

The publication is also going to be talking about a new “Resident Evil” video game. However, the magazine did not clarify if the coverage will be based on the recently-announced remastered high-definition port of the Gamecube game or the potentially-leaked, “Resident Evil Revelations 2.” Several leaked images appeared for the sequel on the official Xbox Live Marketplace before the shots were removed. As a result, Capcom could also be making an announcement in the near future as well.

“Dying Light,” “H1Z1” “The Walking Dead” were the three other games that were featured on the cover. Probably the most unrecognizable name is “H1Z1,” which is a zombie apocalypse massively multiplayer game that is coming to the PC as well as the PS4. For “The Walking Dead” adventure game series, season two is about to be completed while a third season was recently announced.

The aforementioned Zombie DLC could be one of many projects that are being worked on by Rockstar North. The same studio is also trying to complete the development on the troublesome “GTA Online” heists as well as porting “GTA 5” to the PS4, Xbox One and PC at the same time. You can find the cover from the upcoming Official U.K. Playstation Magazine issue near the top of this article (via the official Twitter page of the publication).

Clementine will make a stand as The Walking Dead Season Two closes next week

#TheWalkingDead #TWDUpdate
