Critically-Acclaimed The Walking Dead: Season Two Continues This Week
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Mar. 4th, 2014 — Leading publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman, the Eisner Award-winning creator and writer of The Walking Dead for his Skybound imprint at Image Comics, today announced the release of ‘A House Divided,’ the second of five episodes of The Walking Dead: Season Two – A Telltale Games Series.
The episode is available now on the PlayStation®Network in North America* for PlayStation 3, PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store, and other digital outlets, including Steam. The episode will be available Wednesday, March 5th on Xbox Games Store for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and on the App Store for compatible iOS devices Thursday, March 6th.
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.
“With the premiere of The Walking Dead’s second season, players quickly learned the unique challenges of surviving in the zombie apocalypse as our 11 year old heroine thrust back into Robert Kirkman’s relentlessly unforgiving world ravaged by the undead,” said Dan Connors, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “Clem’s journey continues as even more problems arise, quickly reminding the player that safety is only temporary, and the bonds of trust may not always be as strong as they seem. This episode also introduces our first true villain for the series, the mysterious ‘Carver,’ who’s bent on tracking down her new group of survivors at all costs.”
The premiere of Season Two, ‘All That Remains’ has received critical praise with The New York Times calling it, “Excellent,” and Buzzfeed saying, “It’s a masterstroke by Telltale,” adding, “This is the real deal; a game for adults, not gamers, a game to share, a game to evangelize about, a game to cherish.” GameTrailers.com awarded the premiere with an Editor’s Choice 9 out of 10 rating, saying that the episode, “…doesn’t waste a single minute. Telltale will make you feel scared, hopeful, shocked, and repulsed, only to have the next several scenes do the exact same thing,” with Nerdist.com saying, “…it’s a home-run. Lighting, meet bottle – again.”
To date, The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series has sold more than 24 million episodes worldwide, 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 was also the recipient of two BAFTA Video Games Awards for Best Story and Best Mobile Game.
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.
