For a limited time, Telltale Games will be offering the episode one of their Game of the Year-winning series The Walking Dead as a free download on the App Store.
The Walking Dead was released as an episodic adventure. The first episode, A New Day, introduces new character, Lee Everett, a man convicted of a crime of passion. In the episode, he has been given the chance for redemption in a world devastated by the undead.
As the series continues, players experience “life changing events, meet new characters and familiar ones from the original comic, and also visit locations that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes.” The game also takes into account player actions, choices, and decisions, creating a tailored game experience and affecting how the story plays out across the entire series.
Although the base game app and first episode is free for a limited time, Episodes Two through Five can be purchased in-app individually for $4.99. Of course, after playing the first episode it’s quite likely you’ll want to purchase them all. In that case you can save 25% by purchasing the Multi-Pack (Episodes 2-5 Bundle) for $14.99
