Heads up: the second episode of Walking Dead: The Game is now available for purchase on the App Store, as Telltale promised. It's a $4.99 in-app purchase, obtainable by selecting Episodes and navigating through that menu.

Starved For Help, as it's called, takes place three months after the first episode of the series, which saw protagonist Lee and the rest of the surviving cast shacking up in an abandoned hotel. We haven't dived in just yet, but we hear that this episode does a good job proving that there are consequences to the decisions you make -- something we didn't get a good idea of in the first episode.

We'll be reviving our review after we finish this episode so look out for that. Oh, and if Walking Dead has you hooked, don't forget that you can grab all five episodes for 15 bucks via a single in-app purchase.

    Finished this game in a single startup, I've had so much fun with it and got really sucked into it! Until... episode 1 was over. Too bad of all the in-app purchases updates. Would like to get them episodes as free updates. :'(

      They are selling it no differently than the PC or console version. Each episode is a new purchase or you can buy them all at once at a discount. Personally, I think the game is worth every penny! The story is so well written and engrossing.

      And I would like a game that teleported tripled-boobed Vegas showgirls into the room, but thats an unreasonable expectation.

      £2.99 is also an unreasonable expectation. The bundle price for all the episodes is perfectly fair given that this is a console quality experience. I had no problem getting a gift card just for that purchase.

      do you download the second ep as a in-app or separate application?

      • miumius

        In app

  • Joltrabbit

    The pricing is $4.99 per episode. You can buy episodes 2-5 as one bundle for 14.99 (not all 5 for 15).

    • Onikage725

      True, though that is still a discount.

    Anyone having issues downloading? I keep going to like 90% then it says connection error (which is BS) and I have to redownload. The app is now 1.2 GB in my storage because I keep having to redownload.

    • Tonedefex

      Having the same issue.

      • miumius

        Look like you just have to keep re-doing it. I managed to do after like 10 tries.

    • Maniacfive

      Yup keeps crashing for me as well. I can predict that the 'connection has dropped' rlat 99.80 percent. Twice now! First time i was actually watching and saying to my mrs, 'finally! It's downloaded! Spoke to soon.

      There is a lot to be said for update related IAP content. Let Apples servers take the strain as its obviously better equipped for rush demand than TTG's. I'm trying again, 37.17% as of this writing. if not I shall wait till morning. It's such a tease!

    If you didn't know the full game is $15 on a steam sale vs $20 for iTunes.

    Why is it taking so long to download the second episode? The first episode was just a basic app download...

  • Ryan Gill

    I'm having the same download issue...aggravating.

  • http://twitter.com/Brendan_Charles Brendan Charles

    Can't download! Really frustrating!

  • Sekelani

    Mine says " coming soon". How do I download?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=601731551 Stuart Phillips

    I downloaded it to iPad after purchasing the bundle pack. When I go to install it on my iPhone it asks me if I want to purchase it. Surely I don't have to buy it again?

    • ducksFANjason

      No there should be a restore option. If there isn't, click purchase and you'll get a prompt asking if you want to buy the IAP for "$4.99". Click buy and it will ask you to put in your password. At this point, IF you honestly already purchased it, it will inform you that you've already purchased this item, click OK to download again for free. Click OK and it will download.

      All PERMANENT IAPs can be restored this way if there is no "restore purchases" option. You just have to be sure you've already bought it and take the leap of faith. WARNING: if you followed these steps and you had NOT already purchased the IAP, this WILL charge you, it just won't charge you twice.

    I'm also having troubles downloading the in-app Episode 2 update! It gets to around 90% before deciding it doesn't want to download any more and just gives up. So frustrating, especially because the download speed is so slow!

    Even if i change my iPhone settings so that the screen never locks and it is always active, the connection dies for some reason. It has literally never done this before with any other application. Perhaps it's something to do with a timeout?

    Im having the same issue but it says I have a connection issue as soon as I start the download. So frustrating! Fix this Telltale!!!!

    I tried to download the new episode to my iPad (mid-2012) late in the evening on 8/31, but was unable to do so either via the App Store or the in-app purchase. Within the app, the purchase page still says "coming soon." 

  • Devons247

    I can't even select download!! It still keeps saying 'Comin Soon' has anyone found out how to fix this yet?
