Telltale’s The Walking Dead was one of, if not the, best games of last year. The team is hard at work on Season 2, but is releasing DLC for the game as well. Titles 400 days, the new DLC is a collection of 5 short stories set in The Walking Dead universe. Decisions you made during Season one will reportedly change 400 Days, though as of right now no information was given on what choices. Season 2 is what we are all waiting for, but 400 Days seems to be just enough to wet our appetite. It will be launching on PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS Vita sometime soon, my guess is August or September.
This reporter’s take: I have always loved little short stories inside established game universes. The stories told about each squad mate in Mass Effect 2 were my favorite parts, and seeing Telltale and it’s incredible Walking Dead universe taking this approach is fantastic. The game’s choices can also lead into Season 2, which makes each choice even more terrifying to think about. I agonized over every choice in The Walking Dead, and I’m sure this will be no different. The choices from Season 1 that will carry over are also interesting. the most obvious of these choices seems to be if you (***Episode 2 spoilers***) let St. John brothers live. I’m really pumped for this DLC and we will certainly give you a review when it launches “soon”
