Release date soon for The Walking Dead video game
Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Wednesday, March 14, 2012
Telltale Games estimates that we're about six to eight weeks away from the release of a video game based on The Walking Dead. The game will arrive on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network; other consoles or a PC version haven't as yet been acknowledged by the developer.
There are also some details about the game that can be reported. Unlike the comic book and AMC TV series, the main character in The Walking Dead video game isn't Rick Grimes. Instead, it's a new character by the name of Lee Everett, a man who was convicted of a crime before the zombie outbreak happened. Now trying to stay alive, Lee is given a new chance to redeem his better nature by helping save others from flesh-eating ghouls.
The game is being submitted to both gaming networks this week for review and rating. After that, it could be as soon as the end of April/beginning of May for The Walking Dead video game to appear on Live and PSN.
Also in development at Telltale is a game based on the Vertigo/DC Comics series Fables, about fairy tale characters from many different cultures living in our world. However, the Fables game is further behind in development and is expected for a late 2012 release.
