The Walking Dead: 400 Days Out Today

400Days keyart 1080x540

If you were poking around online yesterday, chances are you might have seen our LATE BREAKING ANNOUNCEMENT from Telltale Games that The Walking Dead: 400 Days is officially headed to PlayStation Network on PlayStation 3…. TODAY!

This special DLC episode features five short stories set during the first 400 Days of the undead apocalypse, giving you a unique perspective on the world seen in Season One of the series. 400 Days will also take into consideration the choices made during your play-through of the first five episodes, effecting certain aspects of your play through of the DLC. On top of that, the choices you make in 400 Days will also have an effect on the upcoming Season Two of the series, coming later this Fall!
 

If you’ve never played the series, we also have some more great news… Starting today, The Walking Dead: Episode One – A New Day will be FREE FOR DOWNLOAD on PlayStation Network for a limited time! This is especially good news if you’re interested in checking out this latest episode, since you’ll need to at least have Episode One of the series on your hard drive in order to purchase The Walking Dead: 400 Days DLC for just $4.99 USD. We don’t necessarily recommend playing 400 Days before playing all of Season One, but it’s not required as it features an entirely new cast of characters separate from Lee & Clementine’s story.

400 Days Screen

That’s probably enough babbling from me over here, but we’re thrilled to launch the episode today on the PlayStation Store, so check it out and let us know what you think! Also, the PS Vita version of The Walking Dead: Season One, including the 400 Days DLC, is looking on track for release sometime next month in August, and we’ll have more news and more details on that bundle very soon! Until then, if you’re a PlayStation 3 user, enjoy the episode and we’ll be tracking the choices made by the community all month long, so swing on into Red’s Diner today where the most difficult decision you’ll have to make WON’T just involve what’s on the menu…. trust us.

Going to download it later today and then plow through all five episodes and then the dlc. Will the Vita versions be cross buy or do we got to buy them separate?

The game is full of decissions but the most important for me, it’s getting the DLC, so I made that decission already.Thank you so much TellTale this is gonna be awesome to play :)

How long are these stories compared to the episodes from “Season One?”

With five short stories for $5, it seems likely all five together are closer to the length of a single episode – which would be pretty darn short. Doesn’t seem realistic to hope each story is the length of an episode, either. So…any clues about how much we’d get for $5?

    Depending on how fast you are, the whole of 400 Days is about the same length as a regular episode.

@Feistfan

That’s why it’s DLC and 4.99

Cross Buy? Cross Saves? Cross Trophies? For when the Vita version is out that is much like R&C: FFA

Question: Is this not included if you purchased the season pass for season 1? Just wondering. I plan on purchasing this even if it isn’t.

    + Laura Perusco on July 2nd, 2013 at 5:02 pm said:

    The season pass was just for the original 5 episodes in Season 1, so 400 Days is a separate thing. Hope you enjoy the DLC!

so has the psn store been updated yet?

I’d still like to know if the PS3 version of The Walking Dead will be Cross-Buy when the Vita version comes out.
I own the retail disc version, but I am considering buying the digital version if it will allow me to download the Vita version as well.

+ Ryumoau on July 2nd, 2013 at 11:24 am said:

I loved the walking dead first season. The atmosphere was great and the character development was the best i’ve seen in any game, even the recent overhyped Last of Us and Bioshock. Clem and Lee’s relationship puts Ellie and Joel to shame.

I can’t wait to play this new episode. Shocked its coming out so soon, considering it was just announced at E3.

+ AizawaYuuichi on July 2nd, 2013 at 11:41 am said:

@ centwood32: I’m pretty sure if it was included in the Season Pass, they would have said so. But then you’ve got the common sense of “it’s not part of Season One”, so, no… it’s not included in the Season Pass. It’s a separate purchase of $4.99, as was said in the post.

Will be buying this and playing through it as soon as the store updates. Lucky for me, I never deleted TWD:S1 after finishing it, so I save time not having to redownload all 3.2GB of it, or at least episode 1. Thanks for the DLC, TTG!

@vladiator011

you dont have to wait until the ps store updates, if you start up the walking dead then go to downloads, it will already be there to buy.

I bought the season pass instead of every episode…. It’s gonna be free since I bought a season pass, or will I have to pay the $5?

    You just need the first episode installed. As long as you kept your save file, your Season 1 choices will be good to go!
