In a recent update to the ESRB website, a rating for The Walking Dead: Game Of The Year Edition appeared. While nothing official has been confirmed just yet, the incredibly well received zombie adventure might be re-released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac.
The shine of releasing a title under a “Game Of The Year” banner has lost a little bit of its luster in recent years due to several unnecessary and, at times, laughable releases. I mean, I can’t be the only one who was heavily amused when Techland had the audacity to release a Dead Island: Game Of The Year Edition, right?
If there was ever a title that deserved this type of re-release though, it may just be The Walking Dead. Telltale’s story heavy tale of the zombie apocalypse was one of the best titles to be released in 2012. The episodic adventure even came in at #2 on our Best Games of 2012 list, ahead of titles such as as Mass Effect 3 and Journey.
As for what content would come with this special release, that question is left unanswered for now. Obviously all five episodes of The Walking Dead: Season One will show up and I imagine that the only episode released this year, 400 Days, will also be included. Maybe we will even get the requisite collector’s edition inclusions of an art book or documentary? Or perhaps we will get our first official look at the upcoming Season Two of the series.
We will have more information on The Walking Dead: Game Of The Year Edition when Telltale decides it’s time to officially unveil it. Until then, let us know in the comments if you’d be willing to pick this up.
