‘The Walking Dead’ now available for free on Xbox 360

The Walking Dead

For most gaming websites, their game of the year award at least had The Walking Dead in consideration. As part of what appears to be a holiday deal, Microsoft is looking to make the hit title available to everyone that has an Xbox 360 and Xbox Live subscription.

We’re not aware of the exact timeline for this deal, but we would recommend acting sooner rather than later. As it currently stands, you’re able to grab all five episodes of the game at no cost to you. You can download the remaining episodes one by one, or you can grab the full version of the game as a complete package.

If you’re a fan of video games, you owe it to yourself to pick up the emotional journey of The Walking Dead. Be sure to let us know what you of the game by leaving us a comment below, or discuss The Walking Dead in our forums.

UPDATE: It appears that Microsoft’s “Full Game” listing is actually only the first episode with the ability to purchase the additional episodes as downloadable content. You’re able to get the first episode for free, but you’ll need to pay for the rest at this point. The deal will last until the 31st of December, so grab it while you can.

When not writing for the site, you can find Dougie on Xbox Live & Playstation Network (Gamertag: AirUpThere06). He plays just about everything, but loves a good shooter with a great multiplayer experience.
