The Walking Dead final episode shambles out next week

The fifth and final episode of Telltale's The Walking Dead will claw at your door next week, bringing the adventure game series to a most-probably-distressing conclusion. Will Lee and Clementine live happily ever after? Will that jerk you chose to spare bite you in the bum, perhaps even literally? Will you wake up and find it's all been a dream? That last one's probably a 'no.'

Episode Five - No Time Left will hit PlayStation 3 first, on November 20, then infect PC, Mac, Xbox Live Arcade, iOS, and the European PlayStation Network the next day, Telltale announced.

"We can't thank you all enough for your incredible support and we can't wait for you all to experience the season finale of YOUR Walking Dead story," the company said.

Fear not, though, as Telltale isn't done with The Walking Dead. A boxed console edition of the first season is coming in December, a fine gift for the zombie-lover in your life. Not your zombie lover. That would just be weird.
