Telltale Games have finally updated the release date for The Walking Dead on iOS from “soon” to “this week”; and by “this week” they mean tomorrow.
That’s right zombie fans; as of Thursday the 26th of July you’ll be able to grab yourself a copy of the game for just $4.99 (or $14.99 if you want to pre-purchase the rest of the series as well). Whilst I haven’t been able to get confirmation from Telltale that it will be available on the Australian Apple store I’m quietly confident it will be a global release.
The game is the same as the full version on PC or Xbox so, don’t worry, you’re not getting a gimped version. The only thing they’ve changed is the control interface and camera angles for a couple of scenes. If you’re interested in the game but don’t know much about it check out our review. Hopefully, they’ve integrated the touch interface well to make the experience easy and enjoyable.
The Walking Dead will run on the iPad 2, the new iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and all 4th Generation iPods and above.
