Telltale Games' episodic adventure series The Walking Dead will be getting a retail release in Australia on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on May 9 this year.
Telltale announced it would be releasing the game as a retail product in Australia following the Classification Board of Australia's decision to rate the title MA15+ for "strong themes and horror violence".
The retail release of the game compiles all five episodes of the first season of Telltale's The Walking Dead, which debuted in April 2012 as a digital download.
Telltale revealed early last year that it had no plans to release the game in Australia and New Zealand due to strict rating laws. Australia officially introduced an adult classification for video games on January 1 this year, allowing R18+ rated games to be sold at a national level.
Prior to its classification in Australia, Telltale's The Walking Dead was obtainable on PC and Mac via digital games retailer Steam, or purchased online through Telltale's own site.
Telltale's The Walking Dead is a single-player episodic game that is based on Robert Kirkman's comic book series. It stars Lee Everett, a man convicted of a crime, but given a chance to redeem himself, albeit in a world infested with the undead.
