IGN has named Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead: Season 2 as its free iOS game of the month for August. The app usually runs for $5.99, but you can head over to IGN to get it for free right now. The game runs on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
The second season picks up where the previous one left off, following fan-favorite Clementine through a bleak and brutal world based on Robert Kirkman’s wildly popular post-apocalyptic comic series. Choices made in the first season will carry over and impact the story going forward.
Like Telltale’s other games, The Walking Dead: Season 2 is an episodic adventure broken into five chapters that are released over a period of several months. You’ll get the first episode for free with this offer, with the next four available as individual $4.99 in-app purchases or as a $14.99 season pass that contains all of the episodes at a discount. The first four episodes are available now, with episode 5 expected in the coming months.
For the uninitiated, the first episode of Season 1 is also available for free on iOS, with the remainder of that season available at the same price as the Season 2. Telltale also recently finished the first-season run of its new series The Wolf Among Us, which is $4.99 per episode on the App Store.
