Well now thanks to local distributors Apex Interactive we have some solid confirmation of both pricing and availability, for the five-part game which was voted Game Of The Year at the VGAs last year, and our own winner for Best Story of 2012.
The Walking Dead will be available at retail in stores across South Africa from the 31st of May, for R299.95 on PC and R399.95 for PS3 and Xbox 360. Now considering the age of the game as well as what’s included, you might think that the asking price is a bit steep, but trust in what I say: It’s worth it.
This is one of those gaming experiences that every self-respecting gamer needs to have, it is a quintessential journey through the lives of a handful of characters that every gamer simply has to play through, at least once. Have I sold it enough yet? Seriously though, I’ve been eagerly awaiting a physical release for a while. Not for myself since I’ve played it, but for those who lack internet to download the games, via XBLA or PSN. Now you guys get to play it as well.
If anything, we ought to pay close attention to this game’s sales since that might go a long way to fighting the Always On campaign that publishers and manufacturers are quietly pushing.
Will you be picking this up, come month-end?
