Telltale's The Walking Dead is a fantastic ride through Robert Kirkman's zombie apocalyptic world. Available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms, this choice-driven series of episodes has already shambled away with a boat load of game of the year nods from publications.

Right now, Xbox 360 owners can hop on Xbox LIVE and download the first episode in this opening season for free. Telltale told IGN that this is a limited time offer, so do it now before the deal expires.

Once you have the first episode, you'll be able to buy the next four for 400 Points ($5).
