However, instead of focuses on the character from the series’ it introduces a new character named Lee Everett, a convicted murderer who gains a chance at redemption thanks to the aftermath of the zombie outbreak.

Players of the game will, however, meet characters they may already be familiar with from the series such as Glenn. There are also characters who will live or die depending on the choices the player makes in each episode.

The Walking Dead Episode One: A New Day launched for PSN, XBLA, PC and Mac last month. An iOS port, meanwhile, is scheduled for the summer. Episode two, titled Starved For Help, will be released as a digital download in June. It will be followed by three more episodes over the coming months.
