The Walking Dead: Episode 2

The zombie apocalypse continues in the next episode of Telltale Game's The Walking Dead, and things look even more bleak for our heroes. Picking up shortly after where Episode 1 left off, the survivors, lead by history teacher Lee Everett, are becoming more desperate as supplies dwindle and the undead Walkers grow in number. Making tough decisions plays a big factor in who survives and who ends up zombie chow.

Read Sarah LeBoeuf's full preview here. The Walking Dead: Episode 2 is due to arrive soon.

Sara LeBoeuf: The demo began three months after the events of the first episode. The gang is still holed up at the motel, but things have gotten even more dire. They're almost entirely out of food, forcing Lee into the woods to hunt for something, anything not infected. Like in the first episode, even the smallest dialogue choices can resonate later on, and if you have the option turned on, you'll be notified after you say something that will have consequences later on.

Instead of food, Lee stumbles upon a teacher and two of his high school students. The teacher's leg is stuck in a bear trap, and he's begging for help. It's an increasingly tense situation, with walkers closing in, the teacher screaming for mercy, and the teenagers panicking. During moments like this, it's easy to make mistakes, and a mistimed button push or wrong dialogue choice can mean the difference between life and death.
