Telltale’s The Walking Dead was initially released in five acclaimed episodes over the Spring, Summer and Fall of 2012. In December, Telltale collected the game’s chapters into a “complete season” compilation on the PS3 and Xbox 360. But some Xbox 360 owners have been unable to play the game as intended as the disc version has suffered slowness and freezing.
Through their internal testing, Telltale has discovered that the glitch is only present for owners of the 4GB Xbox 360 that do not have a hard drive installed. The easiest fix is to simply buy a hard drive. But for those Walking Dead owners who’d prefer not to do that, Telltale is offering an alternate solution.
An announcement on the developer’s official forum has revealed that players who have been affected by the freezing glitch can request a free download of all five episodes of the XBLA edition of The Walking Dead.
It’s a nice gesture, but all five episodes of The Walking Dead add up to 2.85GB, a massive chunk of a 4GB Xbox 360’s internal storage space.
