400 Days for The Walking Dead will be available this summer on Xbox 360 through Xbox Live, PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Network, as an in-app purchase on compatible iOS devices, and on PC and Mac through the Telltale Online store and other such outlets.
The Walking Dead: 400 Days will have five interconnected short stories focused on five new characters joining The Walking Dead franchise. The game takes place in the area of a Georgia truck stop. These new stories are playable in any order and promise that players “will be thrust into horrifying situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions.”
The titular 400 days refers to the first 400 days of the zombie outbreak. The DLC will be available as a separate purchase at a price of $4.99 and will require the base game of The Walking Dead: Season One to be able to play.
400 Days is set to launch in July. The PS Vita version will release one month later in August.
“After the incredible response to the first season of The Walking Dead, we wanted to surprise fans with something that offers a new angle on the world they love that’s connected to Season One and the upcoming Season Two through the choices that they make,” Dan Connors, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games had to say about the new DLC. “400 Days is a great piece of connective tissue for fans to sink their teeth into and we’re thrilled that it’s to be included on PlayStation Vita as part of Season One.”
