‘The Walking Dead’ Shambles onto Store Shelves

Oct 22, 2012 by  

The Walking Dead Season One

One of the best things that gamers have been playing this year is the first season of TellTale GamesThe Walking Dead. So far four of the five planned episodes have been released, and the developer has express interest in continuing the game after the current season has come to an end. While gamers have been enjoying their time helping (or hindering) other survivors in-game, some fans have been unable to partake in the video game adaptation to one of their favorite series, and that’s because it’s only been available via digital distribution.

That’s all about to change however, because TellTale Games has announced that the game will be landing on store shelves this December.

The tangible copies of The Walking Dead will be arriving on PS3 and Xbox 360, and they’ll contain all five episodes of the game’s ongoing season. Gamers who’ve been holding out for The Walking Dead to arrive on a disc will have to pay $29.99 for the first season; meanwhile, those who plan on purchasing all the episodes from XBLA, PSN, or Steam only have to pay roughly $5 per episode. That being said, an extra $5 really isn’t something to get upset about, and the convenience of saving hard-drive space will be more than worth it for some console gamers.

Accompanying details on the standard retail versions of The Walking Dead, came confirmation of a GameStop exclusive Collector’s Edition. This version will come packaged with the 360 or PS3 version of the game and The Walking Dead Compendium which contains the first 48 issues of the comic book, and it’ll cost fans $69.99 for the whole kit and caboodle. Supplies are said to be very limited for this package though, so anyone hoping to snag one of these will have to get their pre-orders in as soon as possible.

The box art of the Collector’s Edition will sport exclusive art from Charlie Alder – the famed artist behind the The Walking Dead comic book series – and that news should be enough to make the mouths of die-hard fans water. Considering that the Compendium retails for $59.99 on its own, it really is a great deal for anyone who’s yet to be exposed to the best-selling comic book series.

The Walking Dead, and its gore-filled collector’s edition, will be available from retailers this December 4th for Xbox 360 and PS3.

  1. Well I haven’t played any yet and want to I was gonna just get the basic retail copy but if I have money to splurge then ill pick this up.

  2. Gonna get that collector’s edition.

  3. The collectors edition is like killing two birds with one stone, and is actual a collectors edition that is VERY worth it. If you like the TV show and like what you have seen of Telltale Games episodic game series, then I’d say bite the bullet and go for the collectors edition. The comic is VERY DIFFERENT from the TV series so you will hardly be reading it thinking “I’ve seen this happen in the TV Show already…”

  4. I wouldve loved to get the collectors edition if I didnt have all the comics already

  5. I was actually pretty skeptical when I first heard they were making a game. I was like great, theyre making a walking dead game to make money since the TV show got popular, this is gonna be flop like most movie video games. But I downloaded the demo and it was actually really fun and felt like I was playing in the comics. Ill defiantly be getting a hard copy

  6. wonder if they will announce a ultimate infected edition, including the CE plus the TV show complete series

  7. This is great. I only bought the first episode and loved it but haven’t been able to purchase the later episodes just yet. Can’t wait to get the hard copy! :)

  8. And this is why I didn’t haven’t played any of the Walking Dead episodes yet. One of Telltale’s people said there was a good chance they would make a physical copy of all 5 episodes, and it came true. I’ll definitely pick up the standard edition sometime next year.

  9. I think that what you said made a ton of sense.
    However, consider this, suppose you were to write a awesome
    headline? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a headline to possibly grab people’s attention?

    I mean ‘The Walking Dead’ Shambles onto Store Shelves is kinda plain.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.

  10. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  11. Have you ever thought about writing an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?
    I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would
    really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my readers would value your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e-mail.

  12. Nice respond in return of this difficulty with solid arguments and explaining
    the whole thing on the topic of that.

  13. This is a topic which is close to my heart…
    Thank you! Exactly where are your contact details though?
