The Walking Dead is an epic drama where personal trials are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment survival. As a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions sweeps the globe, the dead are rising to feed on the living.

The living are changed by the overwhelming realization that those who survive can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth. In a world ruled by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally begin living.

“We have been fans of The Walking Dead for years. As a narrative-driven company, we really appreciate Robert Kirkman’s masterful craftsmanship in every story.” said Telltale CEO Dan Connors. “Fans of the franchise are going to be really excited by how we deliver this in the games.”
