Let’s face it — we don’t generally expect video game adaptations to live up to the works that inspired them. It’s just not the way the world works, generally. So it was a happy surprise last year when Telltale Games released a take on the Walking Dead series that stands right up alongside the comics and AMC series that inspired it. Since then, players have been waiting with bated breath for the promised second season of the episodic title. To tide us over until then, Telltale and Skybound Entertainment have released new DLC that will bridge the gap between Seasons 1 and 2: 400 Days. And since you’re getting new DLC, you’re getting a trailer for it, because what’s new content without a preview?
400 Days is comprised of five vignettes that tell the stories of new survivors, all connected by a gas station in Georgia. Like the first season, this contains choices the player must make that drastically affect the outcome of the story, though the stories can be played in any order. It’s unclear if those decisions will have any impact on Lee and the gang’s ongoing story, but I guess we’ll find out when that releases later this year.
You can get your Walking Dead fix now for a meager $4.99 on just about every platform: Steam, Playstation Network (for both PS3 and the Vita), Xbox Live, and the App Store all have it available.
