The Walking Dead's first episode goes free on Xbox 360 and PS3

If, for some reason, you've managed to bunker down and miss the release of last year's Game of the Year-winning The Walking Dead game, you'll be able to get a taste for free. Starting today, the first episode is now free on both Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network.

On Xbox 360, subsequent episodes will be $4.99 each, including 400 Days. On PS3, you'll be able to pick up a Season Pass for $14.99.

The price cut goes into effect right before Telltale's new series, The Wolf Among Us, launches. Season two of The Walking Dead is also expected to hit later this year.
