Skybound Games and Epic Games have been working to find another home for The Walking Dead last season. From today, the final chapters of Telltales renowned episodic series are available through the Epic Games Store on PC.
This means that the first episodes of The Walking Dead : The Final Season are available for purchase on the platform now. The third episode is January 15th, and will be the first PC entry of the season, and not to fall on other stores, such as Steam and Humble. It will be followed by a fourth and final episode later next year.
Anyone who bought the season, runs on other PC platforms, will not be forced to transfer to Epic's recently launched Marketplace. Skybound said that buyers would receive the rest of the episodes from where they bought their passport.
But beginners or fans who waited for the resurrected season finished before they jumped, must now move to the Epic Games Store if they & # 39; I like to play on PC. And it seems that this exclusivity agreement stems from the sale of the game ̵
"Epic got up to the record immediately to work with us to bring back the original team together and ensure that the fans will receive the completed season of Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season "said president of interactive Dan Murray and Skybound Games, CEO Ian Howe in a statement.
At the same time, console owners will continue to receive the rest of the season's episode on their respective platforms.
Skybound picked up Walking Dead: The Final Season after the original developer, Telltale Games, boarded earlier this year. The studio turned off and left the majority of its staff in September, leaving the end of the series in limbo. Two months later hit Skybound by picking up former employees and drumming the funding to make The Walking Dead get the conclusion it deserved.
