In a recent interview conducted by AJ Locasio of ‘Playing Dead’, Director Sean Ainsworth and Designer Harrison Pink have revealed some interesting information about the upcoming DLC for The Walking Dead, called ‘400 Days’.
First of all, the most important thing to know is that it’ll be up really soon, meaning early July. So if you’ve been chomping at the bit to get at the game fear not, for you don’t have long to wait. Secondly, 400 days is not about Lee and Clementine, but will introduce five new characters, each with a separate and unique story campaign.
As such, it’s only loosely tied to the previous season of The Walking Dead, enough so that established fans will be sated but newer players who don’t know about the previous games are not alienated.
Furthermore, each of the five new storylines can be played in any order and all eventually come together. Throughout the story, players will be introduced to a whopping total of 27 characters, which would make the cast almost as big as the entire first season.
Finally, a word on whether our choices in season one will affect anything in season two. Apparently, season one choices affect the 400 Days DLC, and choices made in the DLC ‘may or may not’ affect season 2.
Check out the interview above. 400 Days will be available on the same platforms as Season One: Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Mac and iOS. It will cost $5 to download, and you need to have at least the first episode of Season One installed to play it. That’s not hard to accomplish, as Episode One is free on many platforms at this point.
