The Walking Dead – Story Trailer

April 25th, 2012 by

An untold story set in the world of The Walking Dead follows convicted criminal Lee Everett; a man given a second chance at life in a world gone to hell. With danger around every corner, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world of true horror.

Experience events, meet people and visit locations foreshadowing the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes in this extension of Robert Kirkman’s award-winning universe.

A 5 part game of Adventure Horror, where the decisions that you make will have profound and lasting consequences.

Telltale Games released an all-new trailer focusing in on the story of ‘A New Day,’ the first episode of The Walking Dead  games series based on Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning comic book series.

Players will be able to experience the first episode of the summer-long adventure horror series, which arrived today* for download on PlayStation®Network, PC and Mac, and will release very soon on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360.

Episode one, ‘A New Day’ and the following four episodes deliver an experience tailored by the decisions that each player makes, leading to multiple paths through the story. Players take on the role of Lee Everett, a man convicted of murder, now given newfound freedom and a chance at redemption in a world devastated by the undead. Intense life or death situations will force the player to explore the darker sides of human nature, and they will meet familiar characters and visit locations from the world created by Robert Kirkman, foreshadowing the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead comics.

Episode 1 is scheduled for release in Europe on 25th April for PC and PlayStation Network, Xbox 360 and IOS releases to follow in the near future.

    I’m about 2/3 of the way through the first episode (on ps3) and am slowly being drawn in. As a long time reader of the comic books, I was hoping they would respect and capture the spirit of the original source and focus on the storytelling and, despite a few clunky scenes and the odd continuity error, I think TellTale games have done a stand-up job. I definitely care about the characters and how I behave towards them (both negatively and positively) – the human element is at the fore here with lots of tricky decision making required in nearly every conversation you have. Liking the ‘serious’ comic book graphical style too.
    Word of warning to zombie gamers tho – this is no L4D or Dead Island. Combat is at a minimum, the story itself is kinda linear – it truly is all about how your character experiences the story unfolding. Should wrap up this episode soon, then a ‘comic book style’ month wait till the next one…
    For those of you were able to wait and / or have a 360, this’ll be available on Friday (so says Major Nelson) for 400 MS. So, after the maths is done, it’ll be cheaper than on ps3. This happens a heck of a lot for the multi-plat titles – Anyone know why ps3 is nearly always more expensive?

  2. Thanks for the insight buddy. I will be picking it tomorrow for the xbox based on what you’ve said about the price.
