Episode Five - "No Time Left" is available now on PlayStation®Network, the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, as an in-app purchase for compatible iOS devices and on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman, the Eisner Award-winning creator and writer of The Walking Dead for Skybound and Image Comics, announced today that No Time Left, the final episode of their five-part game series, is now available for download.

Episode five picks up immediately where episode four ended. Clementine has been taken, kidnapped by an unseen enemy. Lee must set out onto the streets and rooftops of the city of Savannah, a place now completely overrun by the undead, to get her back.

No Time Left concludes Telltale's first five- part game season of The Walking Dead, which debuted in April of this year. Episodes one through four were met with critical acclaim including various Editor's Choice Awards, Best of E3 2012 awards and nominations, a Golden Joystick nomination and 6 nominations in this year's upcoming Spike TV Video Game Awards, including Game of the Year. Metacritic scores rank the series as one of 2012's biggest critical hits.

Rolling Stone recently declared that Telltale's series is, "Truly Excellent," while gaming website Polygon called it, "...a landmark moment in interactive storytelling." Game Informer says it is "…one of the most talked about releases this year" while British national newspaper The Independent called the series, "…downright essential."

IGN has awarded the season finale episode an Editor's Choice Award and a score of 9.5 out of 10 saying, "… People will reference the series over and over as the benchmark for story-telling in games," later adding, "No Time Left is a perfectly paced finale…I cried in the final minutes, sat silently through the credits, and was speechless after the epilogue…"

Prior to this finale episode, The Walking Dead has topped charts by selling over 6 million episodes across a diverse range of platforms: HD home consoles, personal computers and iOS devices. This success proves that Telltale's digitally released episodic games, where the player experience is tailored by the choices they make, are as compelling to consumers as any blockbuster action title released at retail.

"It's been a real thrill to watch Telltale's success with The Walking Dead," said creator of The Walking Dead franchise, Robert Kirkman. "They absolutely delivered on their promise to give fans an experience that's 100% authentic to the comic books. I can't wait for people to play the last episode of this season and I look forward to more stories of The Walking Dead from the Telltale team." 

"No Time Left is the exclamation point on what has been an amazing ride of a season," added Dan Connors, Telltale CEO. "Gamers across multiple platforms have lived and died with Lee, Clem and the other survivors over the last seven months. Telltale's choice-based gameplay and tailored storytelling has engaged players in a way that hasn't been seen before in games, and we can't wait for people to see how their story ends."

Each digital episode of The Walking Dead is available for $4.99 or as a $19.99 season pass on PlayStation®Network; for 400 Microsoft®Points per episode on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360, and as a $24.99 five-episode season pass for PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital outlets.

The Walking Dead is also available for iOS devices via the App Store as Walking Dead: The Game, for $4.99. Episodes 2-5 can then be bought as in-app purchases for $4.99 each or as a multi-pack bundle for $14.99 (saving 25% over individual episode purchases).

The full five-part series is scheduled to launch in December as a retail product in North America for Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 and PC at a suggested price of $29.99. A strictly limited Collector's Edition bundle with a suggested price of $69.99 will also be available for pre-order. It will include an exclusive edition of The Walking Dead Compendium One: over 1,000 pages of Robert Kirkman's original comic book, collecting the first 48 issues of Rick Grimes' story.

The Walking Dead is set in the world of Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic book series.  Players experience life-changing events, meeting new characters as well as some familiar to fans of the comic book series, in events that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes. The Walking Dead offers an emotionally-charged, tailored game experience – a player's actions and choices affect how their story plays out across the entire series.

The Walking Dead: Episode Five – No Time Left is rated 'M' (Mature) for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, and Strong Language by the ESRB.
