Telltale Games have announced The Walking Dead: 400 Days, DLC for Season One a few days ago. 400 Days tells the stories of five linked characters (Vince, Shel, Bonnie, Russel and Wyatt); each takes place at different points in time and from the point of view of a different survivor. The DLC will have a time span from day 1 of the undead apocalypse to day 400.

The 400 Days?
From telltalegames.com: “Centered on a truck stop on a Georgia highway, The Walking Dead 400 Days is a DLC episode for Season One of Telltale’s award-winning game series. 400 Days tells five linked stories; each taking place at different points in time and from the point of view of a different survivor, from day one of the undead apocalypse to day 400.”
“The five stories can be played in any order and will change based on the choices that you make. Echoes of the choices you made in Season 1 will carry over into 400 Days and the choices you make in 400 Days will resonate into Season 2.”
The full first season of The Walking Dead will soon come to the PlayStation Vita in a special bundle that will also include the 400 Days DLC.
How does this episode relate to Season 1?
400 Days is a brand new chapter in the world of The Walking Dead. Although the events of 400 Days take place in the same geographical region as Season 1, this is not Lee or Clem’s story. 400 Days is split over 5 short stories; each presents the apocalypse through the eyes of a different survivor.
Why isn’t this episode about Clementine?
The creators of 400 Days wanted to provide a different perspective on the world of The Walking Dead prior to Season 2 beginning later this year and provide interesting ‘connective tissue’ between the two seasons.
Will my choices in Season 1 affect 400 Days and will my choices in 400 Days affect Season 2?
Yes. 400 Days will check to see if you have a Season 1 save file. The decisions you made in Season 1 will have an effect on your 400 Days experience. And yes… choices made in 400 Days will resonate in Season 2.
How do I buy/install 400 Days?
400 Days cannot be purchased as a standalone game. It’s DLC (downloadable content) and therefore, you must have at least episode one, season one of The Walking Dead installed on your games system to play. 400 Days will be available to buy from within The Walking Dead season one.
Is it a good idea for 400 Days to be my first experience of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, or should I play Season 1 first?
We highly recommend that you play through Season One first.
I can’t wait for this to come as I am a big fan of The Walking Dead franchise. I have been playing the first season again recently and it’s still good. Season 2 can’t come any sooner in my opinion.
The Walking Dead: 400 Days DLC will be out next month on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC/Mac, and iOS devices and cost $4.99 and requires you to have at least episode one, season one of The Walking Dead.
