The indie based title is getting big treatment by Telltale to be published both physically and digitally on PS4 and Xbox One this June. The game will retail for $29.99 and is already ready for pre-order at most major retailers, along with hitting digital shops in the next update.
If you pre-order you get 5 special skins based on previous Telltale titles including Lee Everett and Michonne. Other characters are yet to be announced.
The game is currently availiable on PC/Mac/Linux via Steam’s early access program, and has been a massive hit for the small studio. The console version will include additional multiplayer features, one of which includes split screen couch co-op. Split screen mode can also be played online.
The game combines open worlds, survival, tower defense and crafting into one big adventure. Players will come across combat, crafting, looting, mining, exploration, and character growth, which has lead to hundreds of community driven Youtube videos and gameplay.
“Telltale Publishing seeks to bring the best and most innovative games in their genres to new audiences. 7 Days to Die has already thrilled over 1.5 million PC users worldwide, and we’re delighted to bring this game from the PC to consoles everywhere,” said Steve Allison, SVP Publishing at Telltale, Inc. “The Fun Pimps have redefined what the survival genre can be with unrivalled world-building, crafting, and character growth. With overwhelmingly positive user feedback for the PC version, we can’t wait to expose a brand new audience to this exceptional and terrifying sandbox experience.”
“We’re very excited that Telltale brought us together with the folks at Iron Galaxy, to build the game collaboratively and specifically for consoles. They have a stellar track record, and have been incredible partners in ensuring a perfect translation that includes new features and content not seen in the PC version.”
The press release states that the game will hit in June, but they also suggest “Summer,” so we don’t have an official release day just yet.
