UPDATE: Pre-orders are closed for the Guardian Pack, but the more economical Protector Pack is available until June 15. Pre-order here. Original story follows.
At 2:59 a.m. June 1, Skybound Games will cease pre-orders of Telltale’s The Walking Dead Guardian Pack collector’s edition.
Available for $249.99, the set includes all four seasons of Telltale’s The Walking Dead video game, along with the Michonne-centric spinoff, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC. That’s 23 episodes of critically lauded, story-driven gameplay.
Physical items include an 18-inch by 24-inch art print, a 10-inch statue of series protagonists Clementine and Lee, a Disco Broccoli plush, an Ericson School tee, Clementine nesting dolls, a hat based on the one worn by in-game character Kenny and three enamel pins.
Telltale’s The Walking Dead is a tense affair for fans of both the zombie survival series and storytelling in the video game medium. It’s also the lasting legacy left by a developer that shut its doors in late 2018. As a celebration of the game and its characters, this collector’s edition does a better job than most. However, if you’re just looking for a way to own the entire series as a piece of video game art and history, the Protector Pack carries a lower price point and only omits some of the goodies found in its more expensive counterpart.
