The Walking Dead Ep. 1 is Free on XBLA
We’ve been touting the greatness of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead for most of the year and the entire month of December, even awarding it our Game of the Year honors. It’s also had its price slashed repeatedly on Steam and elsewhere, and we’ve tried to keep you informed on that as well.
But if you still haven’t tried this triumph of writing, artwork and voice acting, here’s another avenue through which you can give the game a try: Xbox Live.
Episode One: A New Day of the five-episode adventure title is free on Xbox Live right now, which means you can try it out without committing to buying the rest of the title. I greatly prefer it on PC, but if a gamepad is more your speed — or you need a proof-of-concept ahead of purchase — this is as good a way as any. Hell, the first episode is also free on iTunes for play on the iPad and iPhone, if you so desire.
