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.
The Walking Dead Game series just finally released the finale for Season 2. The game is pretty much getting hyped lately. But for those who want to experience a zombie game without having to shoot somebody, you might want to check this out!
There was once a time when the only thing that you do when opening a PC was to play pinball. It was either paint or pinball. I sucked at painting, so I chose pinball.
Fortunately, there’s a new game that is coming out on Steam that talks about pinball and zombies. If you like pinball and Walking Dead, then you might want to check out Pinball FX2: The Walking Dead Table
According to their Steam page, the game offers a familiar pinball experience while hitting zombies at the same time. However, for you to be able to play the Pinball FX2: The Walking Dead Table, you must have their previous game Pinball FX2 installed on Steam. It is a free game and that’s not a big deal.
The Walking Dead Table is just one of the many DLC’s that the Pinball FX2 has. There are other DLC’s that you can add. However, DLC’s are not free, so you have to pay for them.
You can also check some of the DLC’s that you can purchase while playing Pinball FX2 as stated on their Steam Page.
That’s a lot of DLC’s including the Walking Dead Table. In case you don’t know how to play the game, it is as easy as playing an arcade pinball. You will be controlling two sticks, hit the ball when it comes close, and let it bounce and watch the action happens.
As stated on their Steam Page, the developer, Zen Studios has been collaborating with Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman to bring you this awesome and nostalgic zombie-pinball game. There are more pinball tables and DLCs coming to Pinball FX2 for you to choose from. The Walking Dead Table DLC will be coming out this August 28. Check it out on Steam!

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).
Amid all the excitement for The Walking Dead Season 2 we somehow lost track of The Walking Dead Pinball, which is based on the first season of Telltale’s game. Developed by Zen Studios as DLC for their Pinball FX 2 and Zen Pinball 2 games, The Walking Dead Pinball features many iconic locations and characters from The Walking Dead Season 1. There are even a few original lines thrown in from the main cast including Dave Fennoy (Lee) and Melissa Hutchison (Clementine).
On the original announcement made by Zen Studios they go more in-depth into the design of the table. “The Walking Dead pinball table features choice-driven gameplay across each of Season One’s five episodes, along with original story dialogue from the award-winning cast. Scenarios include choosing who to save and who to leave behind in a walker attack, solving problems and raising morale within the group, searching for food and supplies, acquiring important tools, and navigating through the herd amidst an oncoming walker breach.”
Locations featured in The Walking Dead Pinball include Clementine’s Treehouse, St. John’s Dairy Farm, Travelier Motel, Bell Tower, Train & Level Crossing, the RV and more. Lee, Clementine and a ton of zombies will be rendered in 3D on the table for various events, as seen in the trailer above. Original lines were recorded by the cast including Dave Fennoy (Lee) and Melissa Hutchison (Clementine).
Since The Walking Dead Pinball is DLC you will need to have Pinball FX 2 or Zen Pinball 2 depending on what platform you have. Pinball FX 2 is on Steam and Xbox, while Zen Pinball 2 is on Playstation and Android. Both games are free to download and will allow you to try out every table featured in the game. After that you can decide if you want to buy the individual table.The Walking Dead Pinball will be available today on PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. While PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and Xbox One will be able to download the table tomorrow. Android and iOS devices will follow the next day on August 28th. As usual with any digital release the storefronts take a while to update. Just keep checking and the DLC should show up on the store or within a couple of hours.
Zen Studios has announced the dates that its new pinball table, based on The Walking Dead video game, will be released.
According to the Zen Studios blog, release dates will be staggered over three days depending on the platform.
For North American PS3, PS4, and Vita players, it will launch on August 26 on Zen Pinball 2; European owners of the platforms will have to wait till August 27.
August 27 will also see the Walking Dead table launch on Mac, as well as on Pinball FX 2 for Steam and Xbox 360.
Finally, owners of Zen Pinball 2 on Wii U and Zen Pinball on Android, iOS, and Amazon will be able to play on August 28.
Worry not, Xbox One owners; news of your release date will come “very soon.”
The table is based on all five episodes of the first season of Telltale’s game, and will feature voice acting by the series’ original cast and locations familiar to those who played The Walking Dead, including Clementine’s treehouse, Everett’s Macon pharmacy, and the walker-infested streets of Savannah.
