If you were wondering where the highly anticipated continuation of Walking Dead [Free] was in our New Zealand release post this morning, well, here's a pleasant surprise: Walking Dead Season 2 [Free] is already released worldwide. It snuck out last night, and I'm really trying to find a functional time turner to help carve some time out of my schedule to play through it.

The awesome thing about this release is that it'll take your progress from the first season and all of the decisions you made get rolled into the story of the second season. The not so awesome thing is that Walking Dead doesn't use iCloud, so if like many people, you played through the game and deleted it because it was pretty huge… You're out of luck.

Looking at this from a "When life gives you lemons…" perspective, you could just take this as an opportunity to replay the first season. I played through it twice, and it's pretty rad how different some things can be depending on the choices you make.

    What a surprise before Xmass! I didn't expect it. I'm just gonna say WOW!!!

  • drlemon

    FINALLY!!!

  • Madhav

    Is that ok if I play second season without first one?

    • Imani

      sure but the story will not make as much sense to you without playing season 1 first. its like a series on tv. you can watch season 2 if you want but there will be a lot of references to season 1 that you won't understand

    Would've been nice if they just expanded upon the current walking dead app, so everything could be consolidated within one app and just charge whatever they charge for the new episodes.

      I wonder if they're hitting the ceiling of acceptable App Store file sizes. Episodes 1 and 2 together would probably be what... 4-5GB?

      • zergslayer69

        I thought the app limit was 2gb on the download size before you decompress it. Since you download additional data after you have already installed walking dead, it could potentially be much larger than the set limit, which is smart imo. Anyways I'm not sure on all the app size regulations.

      Every

    $4.99 with a $14.99 IAP that includes episodes 2-5. Great...

      That seems entirely fair. This is a super high quality game, and it's been ported to iOS for cheaper than most consoles. Don't gripe about it.

  • Eseres

    MAN! This was a intense start for TWD seson 2 LOL! Bought the whole package instantly :D

  • o0oJAKEo0o

    Why don't they use iCloud? What reason could there be? This just ridiculous, to say the least.

  • Ramaz1234

    Ugh I want it so bad but I'm forcing my self to beat season 1 first.

    • Taclys

      DO NOT play season 2 without beating season 1. Many, many spoilers await you.

    What happens if you play without a season one clear save? It just makes random decisions of what happened in the past? I finished S1 but cant be bothere to replay it again :/ lack os iCloud is making me rethink getting it on iOS, I dont want to have the app sitting or a year on my iPad, taking up space JUST IN CASE we get season 3 next year and so my save can carry over.
