The Walking Dead Episodes 1-5 Hits Retail Tomorrow

A disc version of Telltale Games' multi-award winning The Walking Dead series is finally getting a physical release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC tomorrow. All five episodes will come packaged on the disc. This gives players who may be wary of handing over their credit card details online (not that Sony or Microsoft ever have any security breaches, ahem) a chance to play the zombie survival series that many publications awarded 'Game of the Year' last year, including us.

Details and trailer after the break.

Matt reviewed the individual episodes last year and really enjoyed the series thanks to the involving story that forces some truly difficult decisions from the player. I'm going to be reviewing the new disc version and the series as whole for the first time over the next few days. Will it hold up as well when played as a whole? Well, one thing's for sure, it's going to be more enjoyable than Activision's FPS game, Walking Dead: Survival Instinct that I'm also currently reviewing. You certainly won't want to confuse the two on the shop shelf.

It's a fantastic game and I thoroughly recommend it to everyone - but consider waiting to download the digital version when it's next on offer. The full five chapter story has been reduced to 800msp at least twice in the last few months, and surely will again. I don't know about the ps3 version, but I'd imagine it's had similar offers.

I fully understand the desire to have a disk version rather than a digital one - but if it's £25# for the disk or £6* for the digital version then I'd much rather go digital.

Incidentally, you don't need to hand credit card details over to Microsoft/Sony, to buy their digital wares (Brendan didn't exactly say you do - but it can be read that way) - unless you want to pay RRP for your points. And if you're happy to pay RRP for something that's available cheaper elsewhere then you're on the wrong site!

#game collection and hut group look to be cheapest, both being a few pence shy of £25.
*assuming you usually pay £15-£16 for 2100msp, with the full game costing 800msp it works out at £5.71-£6.10.
