Details For 'The Walking Dead' Retail Video Game Drop

Telltale Games has been making zombie gamers go nuts with the release of the new episodes of The Walking Dead.  There are also those that don't want to wait for new episodes to be released in between game playing, so they're waiting for the retail version.  (I'm one of them.)  For those of us waiting, we can now see what will be available for us on store shelves.

Telltale Games will be releasing The Walking Dead for the XBOX 360 and PS3, along with a collectors edition only available at GameStop.

What do you get with The Walking Dead collectors edition, you're wondering?  Well, let's see:

The Walking Dead - Collector's Edition (GameStop Exclusive)
  • Extremely Limited for Pre-Order ONLY, MSRP $69.99 USD
  • The Walking Dead Compendium One featuring exclusive Charlie Adlard cover art. Over 1,000 pages collecting the first 48 issues of Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic book series.(Standard edition of the first compendium without special edition artwork valued at an MSRP of $59.99 USD. This Collector's Edition of the Compendium will not be sold separately.)

Additional details on The Walking Dead Compendium One

Featuring cover art exclusive to the Collector's Edition, this is the first 48 issues of the fan-favorite,New York Times Best Selling series collected into one massive paperback collection! Over one thousand pages chronicle the beginning of Robert Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning continuing story of survival horror- from Rick Grimes waking up alone in hospital, to him and his family seeking solace on Hershel's farm, and the controversial introduction of Woodbury despot: The Governor.

This collectors edition is a great addition for fans of the TV show who haven't read the comic yet.  They can catch up with the first 48 issues of the comic and see how this ended up turning into the phenomenon that it now is.

If you're not interested in the collectors edition, the game only will be going for $29.99.

The Walking Dead does take you into the world of Robert Kirkman's comic series as everything is starting to go down.  While you do come across some familiar characters during the game, you play a new addition.  The official description is:

The Walking Dead is a critically-acclaimed adventure horror game set in Robert Kirkman's award-winning universe.  Beginning when Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes is still in a coma, this is a new story telling the tale of Lee Everett - a man given a second chance at life in a world of the undead.

Taking an orphaned girl named Clementine under his wing, Lee must deal with true horror under the constant threat of walkers hungry for flesh... as well as other survivors, desperate enough to do anything to stay alive.
  • A tailored game experience - live with the profound and lasting consequences of your choices
  • Experience events, meet people and visit locations that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes
  • The world of the comic books brought to life with visuals inspired by The Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard
