The Walking Dead: 400 Days release date announced

Bridging episode to go on sale this week for $4.99; decisions made in 400 Days will impact season two.

Last month, during the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Telltale Games confirmed its plans to release The Walking Dead: 400 Days, a bridging episode between the first and second seasons of its hit episodic adventure game.

Today, the company confirmed that the additional chapter will launch on selected platforms this week, landing first on the North American PlayStation Network on July 2, Steam and the Telltale Games Store on Wednesday July 3, and worldwide on Xbox Live from July 5. European PlayStation owners will be able to download the game from July 10, while the iOS version will launch globally on July 11.

The game takes place over 400 days in the same time period as the first season, but will not focus on Lee or Clementine. Instead, the game will be split into five short stories, each from the perspective of a different, new character in the universe. Players who have an existing save file from the first season will have their decisions carried over, while all choices made in 400 Days will also impact the upcoming second season, which will begin later this year.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days is not included in the original season pass, and will cost around $4.99. The game will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Mac, iOS, and, for the first time, Sony's PlayStation Vita handheld.

*Potential Spoilers!* 

This is my speculation as to what I think 400 days could be about? I also mention Season One of The Walking Dead and if you do not know what happened yet, then please don't read past this point!

Okay then.

Do you remember the people in the distance, waving at Clementine at the end of Season One? Keep that in mind...

Meanwhile,

I believe that the new"400 Days," game is to give a back story to all these new people, that will appear in season two (well some of them, the ones that survive obviously).

At the end of that 400 days is when you may see, the last of this new story's survivors, having just escaped from either the same or a similar catastrophe as Lee just died in but from these new character's perspectives.

The remaining survivors begin walking away from town, through a field... until they notice a little girl sitting on her own by a tree, so they wave to get her attention.

Now we're all set and ready to go onto season two.

This is what I think that they are going to do with it... It's just speculation though, as I said.

"Did you play Telltale's first Walking Dead game?" - I spit at the feet of the one who did not!

Looking forward to this, although I doubt it'll be anywhere near as good as a single episode from Season 1

Do we really need to have Facebook comments on here too? Those just seem noticeably more idiotic than the average Gamespot comment, and they never read the actual article.

I'll definitely be getting it later once I buy myself a PSN card. It's worth the $4.99 since I played through all of season one and enjoyed it a lot.

rather have them continue the Clementine's story but I trust they will do a good job with this

Going to probs wait till its on sale on Plus or something unless it gets rave reviews. Loved the first but reallly not that exicited about this one. Maybe with the likes of TLOU fresh on my mind (still actually playing it). Have a feeling this won't match up to the first. QTE games, if not gripping are pointless. They walk on a thin line but they did a great job with the first so I will in time give it a try.

@CRYO_HAWK The Steam store updates everyday 10AM PST(?), since that's the time zone VALVe is in. Boo hoo, you gotta wait a few more hours. Get over it, lol.

@punksterdaddy Your speculation doesn't seem far off to me. I remember the people on  top of the hill at the very end, but I don't remember them waving at Clementine.

@behnoodi 

Where do you live? If you are in Europe, you don't get it until the 10th of July on PSN. Today if you are in North America.

@Holy-Rapture Tell me about it. I'm pumped. The problem is I'm going out of town tomorrow, and won't be back until Sunday. So I won't be able to play it until then!

@daabulls23 That's probably for the second season. I'm eager to know what happens to Clementine as well but this might ease the wait.

@Gamerhomer Dude it's only $4.99, so if it's not utterly amazing you're going to wait just to save a couple of dollars if/when it's on Plus?

@tightwad34 Perhaps they didn't wave then. Although I do remember them noticing her before it cut out.
