Five instalments to be released at monthly intervals

Telltale’s adventure game The Walking Dead will release on PSN, XBLA, PC and Mac next month.

The title is based on Robert Kirkman’s acclaimed comic book series, which chronicles the lives of a group of zombie apocalypse survivors as they look to find safety and stay alive.

The game will consist of five episodes releasing monthly, and customers that pre-order will get the chance to become an in-game character that will be killed off in the fourth episode.

The news of a cross-platform release comes a month after its Telltale’s previous title, Jurassic Park: The Game, failed to make an Xbox 360 boxed release as had been planned and was panned by critics.
