posted by Scott Butterworth June 6th 2018

Walking Dead fans, the end is nigh! Episode one of The Walking Dead: The Final Season will be available for download worldwide starting August 14, 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Final Season will also come to Nintendo Switch later this year, and starting this Friday, June 8, you'll be able to pre-order the game on PC, PS4, and Xbox One for $19.99.

Everyone who pre-orders the game will receive download access to each of the season's four episodes as they become available. If you pre-order on PS4 or Xbox One, you'll also receive immediate access to The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection, which gathers all 19 existing episodes into a single package. So basically you get the entire series for free and can enjoy the journey in full before reaching the final chapter later this year.

PC players, if you pre-order on Steam, GOG, GamersGate, or the Humble Store, you'll receive 10% off the full retail price. Win10 pre-orders through the Microsoft Store will unlock season one of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series. Just make sure you pre-order before August 14 because all these offers end once the game releases. Again, pre-orders start Friday.

So what's in store in The Final Season? Well... after years on the road facing threats both living and dead, a secluded school might finally be Clementine's chance for a home. But protecting it will mean sacrifice. Clem must build a life and become a leader while still watching over AJ, an orphaned boy and the closest thing to family she has left. In this gripping, emotional final season, you will define your relationships, fight the undead, and determine how Clementine's story ends.

As she builds this new life, you will have to grapple with new types of choices as AJ looks on, learning from your every move. A new over-the-shoulder camera system, greater freedom to explore detailed environments, and scenes with unscripted combat create the most engaging The Walking Dead game yet. And the all-new Graphic Black art style brings the world of the comics to life like never before, especially if you're playing on a 4K- and HDR-compatible device.
