Telltale's The Walking Dead series is apparently coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. A "Game of the Year" Edition for the adventure game has popped up on GameStop.
GameStop has box art for each platform to lend credibility to the listings. The box art mentions that the Game of the Year Edition includes the complete first season of The Walking Dead along with its DLC 400 Days.
Telltale never outright announced Xbox One and PS4 versions of Walking Dead. They did suggest in interviews that they would be developing for the new generation of consoles soon, though.
"Telltale will be on [PS4 and Xbox One] at some point in the future," Telltale's Job Stauffer told CVG in December. "We haven't announced when or what, we're very platform agnostic here. The games that you play on Xbox and PC are the very same games as what we put on your telephone and iPad. And that's what really what's worked for Walking Dead and for a lot of our stuff in the past and moving forward."
The Walking Dead game, like the show and comic book, takes place in the southeastern United States during a zombie outbreak. Telltale decided to use a brand new cast of characters, though. The first season stars Lee Everett, a convicted murderer who becomes the unlikely guardian to a young girl, Clementine. He has to protect her from both human and zombie threats.
The DLC, 400 Days, doesn't continue Lee's story. Instead, it features five short tales from the perspective of different characters. Many of these characters could return in the game's second season.
GameStop says that the Xbox One and PS4 versions of The Walking Dead will launch in June 17th. Retailers often list estimated release dates but this date could be legitimate. June 17th falls on a Tuesday, the typical day that new releases arrive in North America.
If you don't want to wait for The Walking Dead to hit the new consoles, you've got plenty of other options. The complete first season is available on Xbox 360, PS3, iOS, PC, Mac and PS Vita. The first two episodes of Season Two have been released on most of those platforms as well. The only exception is the PS Vita, which is getting both episodes later today.
