“All That Remains,” the first episode of Season 2 of The Walking Dead game series is now available on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3, PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store, and other digital outlets like Steam and App Store for compatible iOS devices.
Season 2 starts where Season 1 left off and continues the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned at the outset of the zombie attack.
“The zombie apocalypse doesn't care about who you are; it doesn't care that you're a nine-year-old girl and not an adult man,” said Telltale Games co-founder and CEO Dan Connors in press materials. “Clem is very important to players—there's a strong emotional connection there—and she's going to experience some extreme situations. Gamers can look forward to more harrowing choices that we hope will stay with them for a long time.”
GameTrailers.com has already given the episode an Editor's Choice 9 out of 10 rating.
“[It] doesn't waste a single minute,” GameTrailers.com wrote. “Telltale will make you feel scared, hopeful, shocked, and repulsed, only to have the next several scenes do the exact same thing.”
The rest of the episodes will be available periodically, finishing on Episode 5 in 2014.
The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series has sold more than 21 million episodes worldwide and is based on Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic book series. The AMC TV series, also based on the comic books, is the most watched cable drama in U.S. history.
