The Walking Dead video game on its way; debut trailer released


Walking Dead fans can rejoice. The Walking Dead video game is coming to consoles and MAC and PC this April. Based on the hit comic book and AMC TV series, Playing Dead is a series-based gaming experience with a series of "game episodes" being released regularly. Each episode consists of about two hours of gameplay, for skilled players, offering a completely different style of play compared to past Telltale games. You have full control of your character as you make your way through this dark new world.

The series takes place at the outset of the zombie apocalypse. Players follow Lee Everett, a convicted felon. who has a second chance in this new zombified world. As you make your way through each episode, players will get to meet characters and visit location from the comic book series. Working closely with the creator of the Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, fans will enjoy how closely this game fits into the world of The Walking Dead.

"The folks at Telltale Games are a great choice for bringing The Walking Dead to life as interactive entertainment," said The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman. "They care as much as I do about the story and characters while seamlessly weaving that into the games they build. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am ecstatic to work with the same people putting out the coolest Jurassic Park game ever."

The first episode of Playing Dead has been announced for a release date of this April with 5 episodes planned.
