Telltale Games has confirmed that The Walking Dead: 400 Days was released today on PSN in North America for Sony's PlayStation 3.
It's this same PlayStation 3 version that will be released on PSN in Europe on July 10th.
The Walking Dead: 400 Days will arrive on the PS Vita alongside Season 1 of The Walking Dead: The Game sometime in August.
Original story follows...
If you enjoyed The Walking Dead: The Game as much as I did, you'll be extremely pleased to read that semi-sequel The Walking Dead: 400 Days is out this week.
If you live in North America, in fact, you'll be able to download it from Sony's PSN Store sometime today as part of a brand-new The Walking Dead: The Game bundle for Vita.
The Walking Dead: 400 Days is a fresh standalone episode that's been designed to bridge the gap between the first season and the upcoming second season of The Walking Dead: The Game.
In this episode, you follow five completely new characters as they attempt to scavenge supplies, fight off zombies, and - ultimately - survive during the first 400 days of the worldwide outbreak.
Although each character has a unique storyline (that you can play in any order), an abandoned truck stop somewhere on the Georgia highway serves as the focal point for all.
The Walking Dead: The Game nabbed a Silver Award at review. We said that its "convincing cast of characters and meaningful decision making lifts it above Telltale's previous efforts".
We hope 400 Days can go one, or maybe two, better.
As mentioned above, The Walking Dead: 400 Days will be available to download in a bundle with Season 1 of The Walking Dead: The Game from PSN in North America at some stage today.
You will be able to grab it from PSN in Europe (as part of that aforementioned bundle) from July 10th, and for your iPhone and iPad from July 11th.
