Telltale Games confirmed Friday that fans of its critically acclaimed choice and consequence adventure titles will be able get the same experience on the PS4 and Xbox One. Both seasons of “The Walking Dead” plus “The Wolf Among Us” are headed to the next-gen consoles.
A date hasn’t been confirmed yet but “The Walking Dead: Season One” will be released to the PS4 and Xbox One with a digital release and a physical release to accompany its existing PS3 and Xbox 360 releases. Meanwhile, “The Walking Dead: Season Two” and “The Wolf Among Us” will both receive digital and retail releases for the PS4 and Xbox One as well as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Prices have not been announced either. However, the season passes for the digital versions of the games are typically in the neighborhood of $14.99 to $19.99 for consoles with the retail releases priced at $29.99. Update: Listings at Best Buy for "The Walking Dead" and "The Wolf Among Us" confirm a $29.99 price point for retail.
It’s unknown if those prices will be increased with the PS4 and Xbox One version. Of course, Telltale Games has also not announced any special features for either console to justify the increase. It will be something to keep an eye on, however.
Both “The Walking Dead: Season Two” and “The Wolf Among Us” are in the middle of finish off their season runs. The latter has just one more episode to go while the former has two more episodes. It’s safe to assume that the retail releases won’t happen until their episodic runs have finished, which means the releases will likely be pushed to late summer or fall.
That’s not all that Telltale Games will have for 2014 though. It’s also planning to release “Tales from the Borderlands” and “Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series” later this year. It’s safe to assume that both will see releases to the PS4 and Xbox One based on the news today.
