TellTale Games have more or less confirmed this piece of information over Twitter, letting the whole world know that The Walking Dead – Episode 1: A New Day will be made available on the Xbox 360 for free, although this will be a limited time offer. Basically, this window of opportunity will be open until January 31st, 2013. I am quite sure that this will be just like the TV series itself, where watching a single episode is never going to be enough, so playing the first episode for free is more or less going to guarantee that you will fork out 400 Microsoft Points for the other four episodes after that.
Apart from the Xbox 360, TellTale Games is also said to offer the first episode of its survival horror adventure game to iPhone and iPad users for free. Having part of the Game of the Year 2012 according to Digital Spy for free does seem as though the spirit of Christmas is still lingering around, doesn’t it? A quick show of hands here, how many of you intend to give the first episode a twirl?
