Telltale Games has verified that The Walking Dead is heading to the Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow with episode one 'A New Day' kicking off the five episode season starring protagonist Lee Everett, embarking upon his own struggle to escape an Atlanta overrun with the slavering undead.
Running parallel with Sheriff Rick Grimes' own story in the comic books and TV series, The Walking Dead game sees Everett fighting off zombies, which naturally means buckets of blood. Hence, The Walking Dead won't be released in Australia due to the game's violence, blood and mature content.
"Sorry, but due to the OFLC ratings laws in Australia and New Zealand, and the fact that this is a mature game, we do not currently have plans to release the game there on consoles," Telltale Games confirmed on its forums.
The Walking Dead: Episode 1 'A New Day' will be available to download on April 27th for 400 Microsoft Points.
