You just can't keep a zombie adventure down. Of course, in the case of Telltale's The Walking Dead, that's a very good thing, making today's video teaser and announcement of an upcoming single episode downloadable expansion welcome news indeed.
In 400 Days, players will grapple once again with both the undead and mankind's own inhumanity as they "struggle to survive the first 400 days of the apocalypse." The stories are distinct but connected, playable in any order, and are "centered in and around a Georgia truck stop, where players will be thrust into horrifying situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions."
Although not directly tied to the full first season of The Walking Dead, 400 Days is a downloadable expansion to the original series that will require "at least Episode One of Season One to be installed on a user's game system in order to play." The new game will be sold for US$4.99 (or equivalent) on a wide variety of platforms, including PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and iOS. Both the full first season and the upcoming DLC will also be released together on PlayStation Vita for the first time.
There is currently no firm release date set for 400 Days, but you can expect The Walking Dead's zombie horde to rise again sometime this summer.
