The Walking Dead is Telltale’s fastest-selling game series to date, with the first episode of five, titled ‘A New Day’ topping the sales charts as the #1 best-selling title on Xbox LIVE Arcade for two weeks straight, also securing a spot at the top of the sales charts in its launch week on the Steam digital distribution service as well as on PSN. The upcoming second episode of the season, ‘Starved for Help’, is expected to launch across PC, Mac, and consoles this June.

The Walking Dead offers a tailored game experience – player actions, choices and decisions affect how the story plays out across the entire series.
