Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman have announced that the 2012 Game of the Year winning series The Walking Dead: Season One will soon receive an all new installment as downloadable content. Available this summer, The Walking Dead: 400 Days will center around the stories of five new characters struggling to survive the first 400 days of the apocalypse.

"After the incredible response to the first season of The Walking Dead, we wanted to surprise fans with something that offers a new angle on the world they love that's connected to Season One and the upcoming Season Two through the choices that they make," said Dan Connors, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "400 Days is a great piece of connective tissue for fans to sink their teeth into and we're thrilled that it's to be included on PlayStation Vita as part of Season One."

The Walking Dead: 400 Days chronicles the horrific aftermath of the undead outbreak through the eyes of five new characters as they struggle to survive the first 400 days of the apocalypse. Playable in any order, the five connected short stories are centered in and around a Georgia truck stop, where players will be thrust into horrifying situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions.

To date, The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series has sold more than 17 million episodes worldwide, earning more than 90 Game of the Year honors from outlets including Metacritic, USA Today, Wired, Spike TV VGAs, Yahoo!, The Telegraph, Mashable, Polygon, Destructoid and GamesRadar, and was also the recipient of two BAFTA Video Games Awards for Best Story and Best Mobile Game.

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 and 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: 400 Days will be available for $4.99 (USD) or equivalent as downloadable content for The Walking Dead: Season One. 400 Days will require at least Episode One of Season One to be installed on a user's game system in order to play.
