Let’s get physical, physical: The Walking Dead available on disc next week

I’m over¬†convenience. Who needs digital downloads when you can put on pants, drive through cop-riddled speed traps, and deal with miserable teenage clerks at GameStop?

That’s the experience Telltale Games is offering now that its beloved adventure title The Walking Dead is heading to retailers starting Dec. 11 for $29.99. The Walking Dead is a zombie story that confronts players with impossible choices and fleshed-out characters. It’s based on the long-running comic series of the same name from creator Robert Kirkman.

The $29.99 release collects the game’s five episodes, the entire first season, on one disc.

As a preorder incentive, Telltale is offering a limited Collector’s Edition for $69.99 which includes the game and The Walking Dead Compendium One, which includes the first 48 issues of book.

Best Buy stores will have a special variant cover of the game for all platforms. It is also the only retailer that will sell a physical copy of the game for PC.

All of this only applies to North America, though Telltale is promising more info for other territories soon.
