Good deal: 'Walking Dead: The Game' episode 1 free on Xbox Live

walking dead good deal

The first episode of Telltale's Walking Dead game may still be free on iOS, but if you'd rather play it on a full-sized console, here's your chance. For what Telltale calls a "limited time," you can get the first episode free through the Xbox Live Marketplace; the other four episodes will still cost 400 Microsoft Points ($5) apiece. We've consistently extolled the adventure game's virtues in our Gift Guide and elsewhere, and it's an excellent pick whether you love the Walking Dead show and comic or have never heard of them. Just be sure you're prepared to make some tough decisions about the value of human life and whether you'll really be able to stop after one installment.
