If you’ve been following my very patchy coverage on Telltale Games’ version of the TV series ‘The Walking Dead’, you’ll remember that I’m a very big zombie game fan and I like to shoot/slash/hack/chop/obliterate the damned mouldering blighters (delete as necessary). If you’ve never played any of the games, then I would say that you’ve missed out on one of the most interesting zombie RPG games that I’ve seen on a console for quite a while.
It’s almost like a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ game where your choices make for some interesting plot twists and the style of the game is almost like a digital comic book. This of course makes sense, as the original story is a comic book that evolved into both a really great TV series and a really great video game series. Originally available on XBox Live and Sony Online, and now Telltale is releasing both the box sets for the basic and Collector’s Editions so you can own all the game in one convenient package.
At this point, it appears that the CE is only available in the US and through the retailer GameStop- but if you’re still interested here’s what you get:
- Extremely Limited for PRE-Order only, MSRP $69.99 USD.
- The Walking Dead Compendium One featuring exclusive art by Charlie Adler (who’s been the series artist since 2004.)
- The 48 issues of the award-winning comic book by Robert Kirkman.
- An awesome box featuring more artwork by Charlie Adler.
- And of course the game discs featuring all the episodes (1-5) from Season One.
There’s no news as to whether this premium boxset will be released outside of the US at this point, but I’m certainly keeping my fingers crossed for it. If you’re interested in it and it’s something that whets your appetite for zombie slaying- then don’t walk…RUN!
