The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead Episode 2 Finally Coming to XBLA Tomorrow
Written By
View author's profile

At last! You'll be able to continue the ongoing The Walking Dead saga on the Xbox Live Arcade from tomorrow, as the second episode of Telltale Games' five episode series is set to arrive for download tomorrow, after a bit of a delay.

Still, it fits in with Telltale Games' promised release timeframe after the episode got held up by the certification process. Episode 2 of The Walking Dead picks up the story three months after the events of Episode 1, where things have got even more desperate.

You'll be able to continue with the decisions you made in The Walking Dead Episode 1, as protagonist Lee Everett fights for survival alongside a party of fellow survivors. You'll be able to get back to the zombie action when The Walking Dead Episode 2: Starved For Help releases tomorrow for 400 Microsoft Points.

Bout damn time. So much for monthly releases, eh? I might just wait at this point and buy them all at once. Waiting 2 months to continue the story is kind of annoying.

@7 These games are prequel spinoff, the show shouldn't have too much to do with the game (i.e. reveals).

I'm waiting for a bundle on this to save some money.

The relatively long release interval doesn't bother me. I've got enough of a backlog of other games that I've been busy in the meantime. Hooray for new episode though!

@17 Read the article "after the episode got held up by the certification process."

It wasn't telltale taking there time it was MS and their certification process
that is the reason for the delay.

Anyway I'm gonna check and see if it is out now on the PSN seeing as its releases come out on Tuesday.

Apparently this is the same old tale of a game being stuck in certification and they just couldn't say when it was coming out until Microsoft felt like getting around to certifying it. The developers probably literally found out their game was being released tomorrow when we did.

@33 are you kidding me the story on the tv show is not completely different from the show! It's similar like now there is a prison so you now the next season the tv show will have them meeting "the governor" and another human outpost.its a good show but I gave up on it it's just lacks surprises and what about the person in the robe with the 2 chained up zombies? Sounds a lot like Michone from the comics! But for the show they will make it a guy.

I'm not digging on the people for show but it's too similar to the comic,plus I got no time to watch it due to working 2 jobs

@46 Aye, it does follow the general plotline even if it adds new characters, kills ones that aren't supposed to be dead (won't say "yet" but you get the drift) and even keeps a few alive that shoulda died earlier. As far as the series goes, it doesn't stray far from the source material so saying it's completely different than the comic is a bit eccentric. They meet up at the camp, they move to the farm, they move to the Prison...some people die, some people live...just like in the comics.

Certain series stray from the source material, take Dexter for instance. The first season was based around the first novel however ended differently than the novel itself, then every season after that was it's own storyline separate from the novelized Dexter Morgan.

Anyways, I'm not saying #33 is wrong for his opinion. There are many differences and the overall storyline is not the same canon as the comics. They lay in different universes with a similar plotline but sort of in an alternate reality sense. The games themselves however are tied into the canon of the comics, not the TV show so it is very unlikely characters from the games (if they survive) will appear in the show though they could appear in the comics! =)
