xbox_live_weekly_update_image13Telltale Games The Walking Dead was one of 2012’s critical and commercial darlings. At long last, Telltale returns to that universe in Episode 1 DLC 400 Days. Starting out in a Georgia truck stop, you will follow the stories of five survivors, all of which are intertwined. The Walking Dead game was all about tough choices, and the ones you made in Episode 1 will have an impact here. Choices in this DLC will impact Season 2. So choose.. wisely. It’s 400 Microsoft Points ($5) to try and survive 400 Days.

The Xbox Live version has three exclusive levels, online multiplayer and online co-op. This offering from developer Alientrap is 800 MP.
