The Walking Dead Episode 3 Launch Trailer and Details
Today, Telltale Games announced that The Walking Dead: Episode 3 is launching on the PlayStation Network in North America, and tomorrow on Xbox LIVE, PC and Mac. The release promises “the most emotionally turbulent in the series yet” which draws excitement as the last episode gave me nightmares for about a week.
Much like the TV series, The Walking Dead video game has left us wanting more as each season concludes. This is also a game where my wife and I can finally agree on what to put on TV, let alone play a video game together. Now that’s love. Although the game primarily follows the comic book, it does allow us to come in contact with familiar characters from both.
The game offers something that the show just can’t: the power for the viewer to choose. Decisions made through an episode carry over into the next, which is something that was known prior to Episode 2. Regardless of whom you saved or who you let get torn apart by the zombies, there is no doubt that even harder decisions are still to come. Much like the title suggests, after the conclusion to the trailer suggests that the “Long Road Ahead” will be riddled with bullets and smeared with blood.
On a lighter less-bloody note, if you are heading to PAX Prime 2012 then stop by the Telltale Games booth (#3117)in the South Lobby. This is aside from the scheduled PAX Prime panel event which will be held Friday August, 31st at 6:30PM in the Unicorn Theater.
