Telltale Games has confirmed that the first episode of its five episode The Walking Dead series is heading towards the PSN with the unstoppable bloodlust of a zombie horde this week. You can pre-purchase the entire series or download each episode individually starting with episode one, entitled 'A New Day'.

Based upon the awesome comic books and hit TV show, The Walking Dead tells the story of Lee Everett, which runs parallel to the events in Atlanta revolving around Sherrif Rick Grimes and the ragtag survivors fighting for their lives as droves of the undead threaten to end mankind.

The Walking Dead Episode 1: A New Day will be releasing on April 24th in North America for $4.99 and on April 25th in Europe for €4.99/£3.99. Alternatively, you can pre-purchase the entire five episode run for £15.99/€19.99/$19.99 and get an exclusive PlayStation 3 premium theme to sweeten the deal.

Thats a good question. Either way, I'm sold. TellTale + The Walking Dead + Input from Robert Kirkman = Win.

I will pass on this one, After being screwed by Back to the Future and me being a plus member 6 months after they released it they make it free,Sony shouls start making it worth buying the plus cause really all I did was get screwed over, All the free games were old games that people stop buying and discount Please add up all the dis-count you got over the course of the plus and you really break even if you are lucky, Well that is how I feel anyway other moght not agree, I just think Plus should do more for the people who pay for it,

@5 Well NOT all people have money to buy every bloody game that get released so I just find it good that PS+ members get a few free games now and then. It's not like I am happy about the games I can get for free but still it´s the thought that counts.
So you say that Plus members should get new games for free? How does that support the game company that make the games if a few people can get them for free?

This game could be so good, the amount of things they could do to it is incredible. However its from telltale games who made the shitty back to the future games so i can see this being a crappy point and click game. If it is way to ruin what could of been an amazing game you fuckers.

i only played the demo of back to the future, but i thought it was stupid. alternatively i was a big fan of jurassic park, probably because of its similarities to heavy rain. from what i understand, this is gonna be more like that, and i couldn't be happier about it. i think the zombie game genre is in sore need of something with more tension/emotion and less killfest/huge explosions.

@5. Yes, I also found PS+ to be utterly useless. Crappy games, and no real point to having it. No games I ever wanted to play, and they're all terribly out-dated. No value for my money, so I'm going elsewhere.

@5, you are so right. I buy games I want on day one. Then they are free for plus users, like myself later. This game will be a perfect example, wait now free later.

@5 and everyone that agrees with him.
totally disagree based on my experience, im currently over $100 up at the moment. as long as you realise a lot of things will be discounted in the future and dont rush into buying things, you can save a LOT of money

Looking forward to this, much like BTTF and Jurassic Park. Telltale finds a way to break the norm on usual gameplay and make things that are almost like interactive movies.

Not sure when the topic digressed into a rant about PS+, but the option seems pretty simple: if you don't like PS+, DON'T SUBSCRIBE. Unlike XBL, PS+ isn't mandatory for online gaming, and only acts as supplemental to your PSN account.

I paid $60 for a year of PS+ back in November when Jurassic Park was given for free. That was already $30 of the $60 spent. Every week there's anywhere from $25-$60 of free stuff given away. I could easily go down the list of my Download History and add up the prices, and already after only 5 months I've received over $300 of free stuff easily.

Oh what, you can't "choose" what stuff you get for free? Boo hoo. That could EASILY become a broken system, especially when Sony already has to defend itself from game-sharing. Besides, it makes every Tuesday exciting to see what new stuff I get to try out, that I may not have otherwise. We got Frogger Returns last week, and it was fun and refreshing to play some old school Frogger!

I hope that it is more like the tv show then the book in how it runs, aka does things the way it wants because the characters in the book sound like huge douchbags over all.

But yeah got a psn card and going to give this one a try, that and hope a few other games are coming out on the psn tomorrow.

I really hope Telltale games really sticks the more mature type of games like this and Jurassic Park, I also think they would make a great The Simpsons story

I don't disagree with ps+, just my antsy day 1 purchases make me kick myself often. Frogger returns for example, I was pumped to play it on release back in 2009 for the whole 30 min playthrough... I coudnt wait that long for it to become free. for 4.99 especiallly. I'm half and half about it. I just think this games has free later written all

Idk if i should buy this right away like i did with back to the future. My main reason being is that they re-released back to the future but it contained a platinum trophy which u didn't get it if u purchased the episodes right away. Correct me if i'm wrong but i think they released it again on disc and that contained the platinum trophy? Either way, i got screwed out of an easy plat and will wait to see if they do the same with this game.
