The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series has been a smash hit among fans, but if you’re like me and own a PS4 or Xbox One, then you know how frustrating it can be to see new games be released, only to find out that the console I own isn’t compatible. Blah. Luckily, for us Walking Dead fans, season 2 is now available for Xbox One and PS4. Get all the info below.
The Walking Dead: Season Two – A Telltale Games Series continues the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned at the outset of the undead apocalypse, left to survive in a world gone mad. Players will struggle to outwit both the dead and the living in situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through the choices that they make.
The Walking Dead is set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series and offers an emotionally-charged, tailored game experience where a player’s actions and choices affect how their story plays out across the entire series.
“Since the series premiere in 2012, the team has been incredibly proud to continue breaking new ground in the art of interactive drama as part of Robert Kirkman’s award-winning universe,” said Kevin Bruner, President and Co-Founder at Telltale Games. “Now available on over six thousand devices from console to mobile, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 formats usher in an even greater reach for Telltale, and we’re excited to be preparing players across the world for a thrilling third season that’s yet to come.”
To date the series has sold more than 39 million episodes worldwide, with its first season earning more than 90 Game of the Year awards from outlets including Metacritic, USA Today, Wired, Spike TV VGAs, Yahoo!, The Telegraph, Mashable, Polygon, Destructoid and GamesRadar, and also the recipient of two BAFTA Video Games Awards for Best Story and Best Mobile Game.
The second season finale was met with critical praise in the press, with IGN.com awarding the episode an Editor’s Choice 9.5 out of 10 rating, calling it “provocative, painful, and unforgettable,” saying, “This is perhaps the most heartbreaking and tense episode of anything Telltale has ever made. How Clementine braces for the impact of everything in front of her is up to you — and where that takes her left me in awe.” Nerdist.com also gave the finale a Perfect 5 out of 5 Score, saying, “Grisly, gripping, but never gratuitous – Season 2 of The Walking Dead was one of the best gaming experiences I’ve had in quite some time, and No Going Back is a real mic drop moment for the series.”
