The latest episode, Episode 4: Around Every Corner had just recently released as well. Lee Everett has difficulty with the management of the group’s tensions as they rise with the continuous threat of the undead lurking nearby.

Episodes 1 through 4 are available for digital download at $4.99 apiece.
Leading games publication Game Informer says Telltale’s game series is, “Gripping, emotionally-charged, and completely blindsiding – The Walking Dead is one of the most talked about releases this year,” while British national newspaper The Independent said that episode three, “moves the series beyond the merely great, to the downright essential.” Yahoo! Games also said that it featured “…one of the most breathtaking in-game moments we’ve ever experienced,” while The New York Times said of episode one, “…moments have more sadness and subtlety in them than other games muster in 40 hours.”
