Watch the New Graphics Comparison Trailer for 'The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection' Ahead of Game's December 5th Launch

Leading publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games and multiplatform entertainment company Skybound Entertainment today launched a new trailer for The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection that contains never-before-seen footage of the collection's enhanced visuals in action. The trailer also contains footage from the original version of the same scene, allowing viewers to directly compare the updated visuals against the original graphics. For more information on the collection's visual improvements, please see Telltale's most recent developer blog, which details the specific actions undertaken to achieve this substantial visual upgrade.

The Walking Dead Collection will arrive in stores on December 5th at retailers across North America and Europe, gathering all 19 episodes in the award-winning series onto one disc for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The collection will also be available digitally on both platforms starting that same day. The collection includes the recent third season, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, as well as visually enhanced versions of Season One, Season Two, 400 Days, and the three-part Michonne miniseries.

The Walking Dead is an unparalleled journey into the heart of what it means to be human in a world that's lost its humanity. Set in Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic book universe, your story is determined by the choices you make. Season One of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series redefined expectations for storytelling in video games, winning over 100 Game of the Year awards. Now the first three seasons, as well as horror anthology 400 Days and the three-part mini-series starring blade-wielding icon Michonne, will be available in one place for the first time, allowing you to prepare for the upcoming fourth and final season starring beloved survivor Clementine (due out in 2018).

"Clementine has meant so much to fans since the series premiered in 2012," said Melissa Hutchison, the award-winning actress behind the iconic character. "It's incredible to see this series collection arriving all in one place for players to relive the journey or catch up on her tragic tale of survival before we head into the final chapters of her storyline next year."

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection will be available at retail and digitally on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One starting December 5th, 2017 for the suggested price of $49.99 USD or equivalent. The Walking Dead: The Final Season (working title) will debut in 2018 on consoles, PC/Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices. Additional platforms are yet to be announced.
Nice, I'll pick this one up when it hits the bargain bin!

$50 seems pretty pricy for games that have been free at one time or another on PS+ but I would really like to have this collection as a physical disc when it hits $20 or $25.

The improvements on the main character are marginal at best. The original textures on the zombie babysitter were blurry in the original and they did a nice job of cleaning them up. It's not something you'd really notice when you're trying not to get your nuts bitten off during a frantic QTE, though.

$50 doesn't seem terrible considering it collects all three full length seasons and both mini-stories. My main problem with this collection (and GOTY editions in general) is that the only reason it exists is because the game was popular and sold a bunch of copies. This gives an unarguably better product at a better (initial) price than the original product(s) and screws over the early fans that made the product popular in the first place.

I never played them. I bought the first series on PC and got to the first interaction only to find out the game assumed controls for a right handed person.

I'm a lefty. I want to rebind the controls and there were no options. So I never played again.

Maybe this changes my mind but not at $50 since the entire series can be had for less than $10 on some steam sale. And I bet it works with the Xbox One controller.
