The Walking Dead: Season Two is now available on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 (as well as other consoles) on the Xbox One store for download and in retail stores. The Xbox One received its own port of The Walking Dead: Season One just last week, so this is a good week to be an Xbox One owner (Xbox 360 has had it since 2012).
For those of you not familiar with the games, they don’t follow the TV show in the way a traditional game would. Instead, the games are placed in the same universe but have their own characters and story. Additionally, the story is dynamic, and what you do in one ‘episode’ (i.e. chapter) affects what happens to you later on. If you are a fan of the show, these games are very easy recommendations (the new title has 5 stars on 53 reviews so far in the Xbox Store).
Here’s a quick intro to the second game (trailer below):
The sequel to 2012’s Game of the Year continues the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned by the undead apocalypse. Left to fend for herself, she has been forced to learn how to survive in an unforgiving world. Experience what it’s like to play as Clementine, meet new survivors, explore new locations and make gruesome decisions in this five-part game series of choice and consequence.
If you do decide to purchase it from the Xbox One store, it’s a 4.48 GB download, and will relieve your account of $24.99 + appropriate tax.
