Telltale Games “The Walking Dead” is one of the best gaming experiences I have had in a long time. Episode 1 was gripping and had some truly tough decisions. It left players wanting more and perhaps the biggest knock on the game so far is that players have had to wait since April for the next episode. Well it seems that the wait will soon be over with Telltale Games confirming to Kotaku that The Walking Dead Episode 2 “Starved For Help” will be released near the end of this month. As someone who owns the Season Pass I can’t wait.
Episode 2 will pick up 3 months after the conclusion of Episode 1 which I have some reservations about but I’ll reserve them to until after I play it. Without giving away too much for those that haven’t played it, Episode 1 ends with the group finding some safe haven and while they are technically safe from the zombies they miscalculated how long they could survive with a limited food supply and now things are getting desperate.
Every episode of The Walking Dead will be written and directed by different people so the quality of each episode could vary wildly. That along with the long waits between episodes are my two biggest issues about this game. It’s my major concern with episodic games in general, you never know when or if you will get the next episode and of what quality it will be. Anyway, keep it locked here for all the latest gaming news and we will be sure to let you know as soon as we get an official release date for The Walking Dead Episode 2 “Starved For Help”. The only reason that we don’t have an official release date is that they are waiting to hear back from Sony and Microsoft on the certification process.
