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.
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.
The fifth and final episode of The Walking Dead Season Two, No Going Back, will launch next week, developer Telltale Games announced today.
No Going Back will be available for Mac, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Windows PC on Aug. 26, Xbox 360 on Aug. 27 and for iOS on Aug. 28.
The announcement was made alongside the release of the season’s final trailer, which chronicles the emotional journey of protagonist Clementine and asks players to reflect on the choices they’ve made for her character. Be warned, the trailer is packed with spoilers for previous episodes in both seasons of Telltale’s episodic drama — so you may want to hold off watching until you’re all caught up — and includes an all-new scene created specifically for the trailer.
The Walking Dead: Season Two episodes are available through the Xbox Games Store and PlayStation Store for $4.99 individually or as part of a $19.99 season pass option that grants access to new episodes as they are released. Episodes on Mac and PC are available in the season pass option and iOS episodes can be purchased in a bundle or individually for $4.99.

Telltale games’ The Walking Dead season 2 episode 5 release date has been set on September 23 as revealed on Gamescom 2014.
Telltale Games‘ much-loved series The Walking Dead is well into its second season, with the fifth episode, No going back, being launched on September 23.
But this “coming soon” is going to be this September 23, 2014 as according to the report of gaming news site, Cyberland.
There are five episodes in total in the second season of the game. After the end of each The Walking Dead adventure game episode, Telltale Games is nice enough to include a teaser trailer for the next episode however this wasn’t the case this time though.
What we know so far is that in Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 5 is that Clementine has been reunited with her group and they go on the road to finally continue their trip up to the cold North to the Wellington safe camp, where the zombies move slow and they can all live happily ever after. Unless of course every character you like dies, because that’s how The Walking Dead likes to roll.
The only other clues are the trophy/achievement names, which are famous quotes & poems.
1. “Blood and Iron” (Silver Tropy/10 Gamerscore) – Made it out alive.
2. “Miles to go” (Bronze Tropy/10 Gamerscore) – Took a breather.
3. “Right of Frost” (Bronze Tropy/10 Gamerscore) – Stopped for the night.
4. “Center Cannot Hold” (Silver Tropy/10 Gamerscore) – Reach the other side.
5. “All the Dark Night” (Bronze Tropy/10 Gamerscore) – Made it through to morning.
6. “We Slowly Drove” (Bronze Tropy/10 Gamerscore) – Reached the terminus.
7. “Kindly Stop for Me” (Silver Tropy/15 Gamerscore) – Found your way through.
8. “All the Dead Lie Down” (Silver Tropy/25 Gamerscore) – Completed Episode 5: “No Going Back”.
It should be noted that Tellgames has confirmed that there would be a season 3 but they’re not sure if it’s going to focus on Clementine.
