The Walking Dead: Season One game is now available in the Google Play Store. We suspect many will react to this news with one word -- finally. But putting the long wait aside, the game has arrived for Android users to begin playing. Those grabbing the game will have access to Episode 1-5 as well as a special one called "400 Days."
If you've come this far you are likely aware of The Walking Dead. And in this case, yes, the game is based on Robert Kirkman’s award-winning series. You will be playing as Lee Everett, and protecting an orphaned Clementine.
"Experience events, meet people and visit locations that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes. A tailored game experience – actions, choices and decisions you make will affect how your story plays out across the entire series."
You will be able to play with Android 2.3.3 or later, and while there are a set of minimum required specs, the recommended include Adreno 330 graphics with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
For reference, The Walking Dead: Season One does play really nicely on the NVIDIA SHIELD. Naturally, that goes to say the control support can be expected. But otherwise, the game also plays nicely on a touchscreen device. Touching back on those specs and we find the minimum required to be Adreno 200 with 1GB of RAM and a dual-core 1GHz processor.
The Walking Dead: Season One can be found in the Google Play Store. The Season One game contains six episodes in total. The first, Episode 1: A New Day, is free. From that point, Episodes 2-5 are available via in-app purchase.
Those will each run you $4.99. Telltale Games also has a special episode, called "400 Days" available. Similar to the other in-app purchases, that one is also $4.99. Those looking to save some money can purchase the Season Pass which includes Episode 2-5 and "400 Days" for $14.99. Either way though, you can get started with The Walking Dead: Episode One: A New Day for free.
