Heads up: the third episode of Telltale Games' fantastic Walking Dead [Free] series is now out and available on the App Store. Just like the rest of the episodes, it's a $4.99 in-app purchase accessible via the "Episodes" menu. If you bought the season pass, it's free.

Episode 3, or as it's called, Long Road Ahead, revolves around the surviving cast and crew deciding to pack up and bail on Macon, Georgia. The teaser trailer we've included in this post shows a few promising scenes, and also makes it plain that a "traitor" is making surviving even more difficult for Lee than it already is.

We haven't played it yet, but word is that this episode is yet another rough emotional ride. The previous episode really brought the pain, so it'll be interesting if this one can top the lows we felt. Oh, and we'll be reviving our review once we can really dig into this episode, so look for that update at the end of the week.

    I thought they'd catch up with consoles but they're actually moving slower. Hope they up their game so I can at least play 5 on my iPad before it releases on my box.

      Oh. And btw. Everyone dies at the end. Just so you know.

        Wtf man! SPOILER!

      • ducksFANjason

        I have no idea whether or not that's the truth or not, but regardless of whether that was a joke or not, that's a really dick move. Not funny man...

        If true, I'm gonna make his life miserable on this site. I freaking hate lowlifes getting a kick out of ruining other people's fun and will actively fight that. In any case, it's not true of this episode (i.e. episode 3); I haven't played the new episode 4 yet, so I wouldn't know.
        I have a hard time believing it, anyway.

        By the way, this asshole was lying through his rotting teeth. I guess that's a spoiler as well, but it's a less horrible one than this prick tried to put forward. Don't worry, your experience with episode 4 will not be ruined by this son of a bitch.

      Double post.

    I'm wrapping up episode 4 on my PS3, so no point in getting this.

  • GSJ1977

    That was quick. I haven't even got around to playing episode 2 yet. Not that I'm complaining mind you.

  • Firetruck94

    Wanted to get this, but most sure how it runs on iPod touch 4g, can someone tell me how it runs?

    • Ryan Gill

       It runs, but a little jumpy. And make sure you treat it as you would any resource-heavy app and clear as much RAM as possible first.

    • Shadowking2214

      Episode 2 runs better than episode 1 but I reboot before playing an episode so that might be it,and I haven't bought episode 3 yet so I'm not sure how it performs

  • Relytgninroht

    Oh, it tops the low of episode two alright. It also is super linear and makes it clear that you really don't have as much control over the story as they say- in the end, your choices don't matter THAT much.

    Worst episode so far IMO. Fourth one wasn't bad but the plot was too predictable. So, I'd say the second one is still my favorite though four came close to topping it.

    EPISODE 3 has game design glitch, crappy and buggy as hell
