The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series has today stumbled and groaned onto PS4, Xbox One and PC. It’s a surprise it even managed to happen at all, given the uncertainty around the last season of Clementine’s story, but I for one am glad everything turned out OK. Well, OK-ish. Telltale went under and people lost their jobs, but you know what I mean.
Once Telltale had gone the way of the walker, Skybound Games stepped in to keep things in order. Since helping get The Final Season released, Skybound has now compiled every playable moment in The Walking Dead into one package with a whole host of extra content. Seriously, there’s more content than you could shake a walker’s rotted leg at.
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series includes all four seasons of the critically acclaimed game series, as well as The Walking Dead: Michonne, and the bonus mini-series 400 Days that plugged the gap between Season 1 and Season 2. In addition to all that, you’re getting over 10 hours of developer commentary (nerd out weekend incoming!), behind-the-scenes features, such as a mini-documentary and concept art and character galleries. There’s also over 140 music tracks from across the entire collection of games, as well as a new art style “graphic black,” which can be applied to all of the games, but was previously only available in The Final Season.
I’ve spent my evenings following Clementine’s tragic tale and I’m still not quite done with it. There’s just so much! If you’re a lapsed player who got lost between the generation transition from PS3/Xbox 360 to the newer machines, I definitely recommend giving this collection look at. It’s a steal at $49.99/€49.99/£39.99, and we’ll really go into the meat of it in our review this week. Until then, have a gander at the new launch trailer that was released today.
