Telltale Games today released a video detailing just how fans can get a chance to join the cast of The Walking Dead after pre-ordering the game through Telltale’s store directly online before the game launches later this April.
Based on the award-winning comic book series by Robert Kirkman, one grand prize winner will be put into a future episode of The Walking Dead game as a human character, then gruesomely killed – only to be resurrected as a member of the undead and put down once and for all! Pre-ordering the full five-episode season of The Walking Dead for PC/Mac through the Telltale Games Store also gives fans 10% off the season’s full price – bringing the full season down to just $22.49!
If you’re really ravenous for Telltale’s brains, when pre-ordering The Walking Dead, for just $20 more you can get the “almost everything” pack which includes the full seasons of Back the Future, Jurassic Park, Hector, Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People, Sam and Max Seasons 1-3 and Puzzle Agent 1 & 2! That’s a deal to die for!
In addition to this detailed video, Telltale has also posted a series of video format Q&A sessions on the games’ official website (answers come from Lead Designer Sean Vanaman and Designer Harrison Pink). Gamers are encouraged to ask more questions for future Q+A sessions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving a message at (707) 701 DEAD.
The Walking Dead is a five-part episodic game series coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, PC, Mac and other leading platforms. The first episode will be available for download in late April. Standard price on Xbox 360 will be 400 MS Points per episode, and $4.99 per episode on PlayStation Network, as well as PC & MAC through Telltale’s Store directly, or through Steam.
