If you’re like me, you loved the emotional ride that was Telltale’s The Walking Dead and have been anxiously awaiting the game’s Season 2. You don’t come across a game that often with such deeply moving emotional characters. While this type of “episodic graphic adventure” game may not be everyone’s cup of tea, to me it seems that Telltale has started a trend with character evolution in video games. And that’s certainly something I’d be happy to see more of….. have you played BioShock Infinite or The Last of Us? Now we get 400 Days which will be a bridge from Season 1 to Season 2 and that time is almost upon us. Take a look:
- Tuesday, July 2nd – PlayStation Network (North America)
- Wednesday, July 3rd – PC/Mac (Steam, Telltale Games Store)
- Friday, July 5th – Xbox Live (Worldwide)
- Wednesday, July 10th – PlayStation Network (Europe)
- Thursday, July 11th – iOS (Worldwide)
What Does 400 Days Have in Store For Us?
As I mentioned above, this DLC for The Walking Dead game will “connect” the game’s seasons with the added element of having the choices you’ve made in Season 1 carry over into 400 Days and choices from 400 Days carry over into the Season 2. This is a brand new chapter in the game’s series that will focus on new characters. Although for those of you who have played the first one already, you know that Kirkman and Telltale had several surprises for us and one can only hope they will do that again. So far the trailer for this has me hooked and ready for this weekend!
400 Days is a brand new chapter in the world of The Walking Dead. Set in the same geographical region as Season 1 but telling a story of a new set of survivors, 400 Days is split over five short stories centered on a truck stop on a Georgia highway. These five linked stories each take place at different points in time and from the point of view of a different characteer, from day one of the undead apocalypse to day 400.
