Xbox One and PS4 Getting Telltale's Walking Dead, Wolf Among Us

After retailer leaks, Telltale officially confirms its popular franchises are coming to new consoles.

by

The reports were right. Telltale Games today officially confirmed that its Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us adventure games are coming to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Walking Dead seasons one and two, as well as the first season of The Wolf Among Us, will be available on retail discs later this year.

In addition, Telltale Games announced that the second season of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us will be released as retail discs for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year. The first season of The Walking Dead is already available on Xbox 360 and PS3.

The second season of The Walking Dead is ongoing, with the latest episode--In Harm's Way--having launched just two weeks ago.

Today's announcement is not much of a surprise, as various retailers earlier this month posted product listings for The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us for Xbox One and PS4.

Telltale has not shared pricing information for any of the Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us console versions or provided specific release dates. The company says it will have details about availability "soon."

why dont they just package both titles together??? the wolf among us and the walking dead combined into a single release

If I'll be able to play these on the PS4 without the ridiculous loading between scenes and various other performance issues, I'll gladly throw my money at this. If it's just a direct port with no improvements though... I'll stay away.

seriously whats the point on getting these on xbox one or ps4.  my 2011 macbook pro can run them on full graphics so I doubt the xbox 360 or ps3 had a problem doing that either. so why pay more for the next gen versions when they look exactly the same?

I actually like "Wolf Among Us" better than the Walking Dead games.

But I thought these new consoles couldn't play these old games that were developed strictly for last gens hardware?

The only way I could see this working is rebuilding the game from the ground up so it can run on the new stuffs hardware....which they obviously are not doing.....

Here is another question to be asked at E3 nobody will ask

"Why are you porting PS3/360 games to these new consoles when you said they wouldn't be able to run on them to begin with? Are these ports? and if so, why can't people just put in the copies from last gen they already own?"


Sorry Sony/Microsoft...I will not buy ports of games again that I already own.....


I would also like to point out when Microsoft tried saying the 360 couldn't play Xbox Original games....but then put out a patch update that let people play those old games...completely for free.

I have stopped buying brand new PS3 games and held out on major games that I finally planned to pick up for them since it became apparent that there was a great chance at a superior port coming out on PS4 in the near future. Now I feel like I wasted some of my money on some purchases. This is the worst transitional phrase in gaming.

I have no idea why they would do this? The graphics aren't even that good. So a port is in any means justifiable.

If you haven't played The Walking Dead yet... I highly recommend you buy it

This just goes to show you how thin the libraries are on both systems. Publishers can just push out re-releases and make money.   God I hate the transitional phase between console gens.

This is a great move; the more who get to experience these wonderful titles, the better.  I was waiting for this announcement.

Good news since I only bought episode one of the second season. I'll get the whole second season of the walking dead on PS4.

I may also get the wolf among us too for PS4. It looks as good as TWD.

This is good news considering I haven't played either of those games...

Generation of re-releases and marginal graphic upgrades.

The first season of the Walking Dead game was awesome! I look forward to season two.

Was waiting for this two to end before buying the full pack. So yeah, good news.

It'd be cool if they could transfer the saves over like they're doing with Minecraft.

If they made it crossbuy on PS4 for if you already have the season pass on PS3, it would be worthwhile, but if not, it isn't really worth it for me, since I won't pay for a game twice.

Options are always good, but I'm having a hard time understanding now just getting it on PC. 


I'm having a hard time imagining laptops, recent desktops , &  a significant portion of recent mobile devices that can't run these games. 


It'll be installable instantly on any future device you may have and so on. Of course buying it on PS4 and Xbox One is definitely sensible since they just started, but I'm certain some people will double-dipping at that point, buying the same content they had on the PS3 & Xbox 360. 

Since they're ongoing, it would personally suck to buy it on 360 and PS3 at this time.

The Walking Dead game is one of the most well written story driven adventure game ever. And those choice driven consequences are so brutal.

I guess Sony and MS need more free game fodder for their new console monthly services.

Almost shocked GS doesn't have this listed as "PS4 has this resolution while X1 has this" and or "Telltale's Walking Dead, Wolf Among Us skipping Wii U".

Nice, haven't played Walking Dead Season 2, or Wolf Among Us, and I loved Walking Dead Season 1, so I'll probably end up picking up all three of these.

@Vodoo I wouldn't go that far. Wolf among us is amazing though.

@tableofjapan It's nothing new since the start of video games they always port old games to the next gen. Mega man X for snes/ps1 earthworm jim 2, space harrier sms,gen,saturn etc.. nothin new.

They patched 'some' games to work on the 360, but not all. Time Splitters 3 won't work on the 360, as an example.

@vladric i think,maybe this isn't about the graphics,is about the story and gameplay..

CaveManCobb
CaveManCobb

@vladric Yeah because people totally play Telltale games for the cutting edge graphics. God forbid they have an art style instead of photorealism.

I actually prefer Wolf more. Its got a much better story and the characters are 10 times more interesting.

@lozandier Buy it on whichever's cheapest. Steam summer sales are coming up soon which is why I'm holding off buying anything at the moment.

If people just want something to play on their new console then it is as good as any to play it on.

@everson_rm Why would these games ever need to be in 1080p OR 60fps?

Doesn't have any fast gameplay to make 60fps necessary and it is simplistic comic style meaning it will look no better in 1080p.

@berserker66666 The writing is good but the choices actually don't make much of a difference.  They're very good at the smoke and mirrors tactic though, they even fool me sometimes.

@kane6911 Dude,is about surviving,love,friendship,and much more...u should play TWD first before comment like that...

@RyogaRod those are filler articles but let me help you out ps4 1080 p Xbox one 1p lol and we are skipping the Wii u because we make enough money without that console.

Aaronp2k

@Vodoo probably because its based on a comic whereas the walking dead is a spinoff of a tv show with its own original story.

everson_rm

@Dannystaples14 @everson_rm But, but, if isnt 1080p @ 60fps isn't worth. (sarcasm is hard to get in a text).

@everson_rm Yeah I always presume people are being sarcastic now. Unfortunately my reply also sounds way more serious than I really intended it to be for the same reason, haha.
