‘The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection’ Arrives December 5th; Writer Gary Whitta Returns for ‘The Final Season’

All 19 episodes in the critically-acclaimed series available on a single disc for the first time. ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ co-writer Gary Whitta returns to the series for the fourth and final season, premiering in 2018.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., November 1st, 2017 — Leading publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment announced today that The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection will arrive in stores on December 5th at retailers across North America and Europe, gathering all 19 episodes in the award-winning series onto one disc for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The collection will also be available digitally on both platforms starting that same day. The collection includes the recent third season, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, as well as visually enhanced versions of Season One, Season Two, 400 Days, and the three-part Michonne mini-series.

In addition to the announcement of this upcoming collection, Telltale also confirmed that Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Book of Eli) will be returning to Telltale’s writers room as a Story Consultant for the series’ upcoming fourth and final season. Whitta was part of the BAFTA-award winning team of writers on the first season of the Telltale series and will be collaborating with Telltale and the creative team at Skybound Entertainment on the final chapters of Clementine’s storyline.

“Collaborating with Telltale on the first season of Clementine’s journey through the world of The Walking Dead was one of the highlights of my career, so reuniting with them to now bring her story to a close with this final season feels like a homecoming,” said Whitta. “Clementine has become not just one of the most compelling characters in the Walking Dead pantheon but one of the great video game characters of all time. I hope we’re able to do justice to her and to her millions of fans. This one feels special.”

The Walking Dead is an unparalleled journey into the heart of what it means to be human in a world that’s lost its humanity. Set in Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book universe, your story is determined by the choices you make. Season One of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series redefined expectations for storytelling in video games, winning over 100 Game of the Year awards. Now the first three seasons, as well as horror anthology 400 Days and the three-part mini-series starring blade-wielding icon Michonne, will be available in one place for the first time, allowing you to prepare for the upcoming fourth and final season starring beloved survivor Clementine (due out in 2018).

“Clementine has meant so much to fans since the series premiered in 2012,” said Melissa Hutchison, the award-winning actress behind the iconic character. “It’s incredible to see this series collection arriving all in one place for players to relive the journey or catch up on her tragic tale of survival before we head into the final chapters of her storyline next year.”

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection will be available at retail and digitally on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One starting December 5th, 2017 for the suggested price of $49.99 USD or equivalent. The Walking Dead: The Final Season (working title) will debut in 2018 on consoles, PC/Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices. Additional platforms are yet to be announced.

IMAX AND UBISOFT® LAUNCH SPECIAL EDITION OF STAR TREK™: BRIDGE CREW EXCLUSIVELY IN IMAX VR CENTRES

Round Up Your Crew and Prepare to Step Aboard a Federation Starship in a New Destination-based Version of Ubisoft’s Critically-Acclaimed Virtual Reality Game

LOS ANGELES – Nov. 1, 2017 – IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX) and Ubisoft® announced today that a new edition of Ubisoft’s critically acclaimed virtual reality game, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is launching for an exclusive run in IMAX VR centres worldwide. The new edition, called Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph, has been re-designed and optimized for an interactive and multiplayer destination-based IMAX VR experience, which will let up to four players explore space together and complete missions as members of Starfleet.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph immerses fans into the Star Trek universe as they assume the role of Starfleet officers and complete missions that will determine the fate of their ship and crew. Playable with up to four people per pod, Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph puts players and their friends directly onto the bridge of a new starship, the U.S.S. Aegis, as they are dispatched to explore an uncharted sector of space.

“Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph is a game-changing destination-based VR experience and one of the most significant pieces of content to come to IMAX VR centres,” said IMAX Corp. Chief Business Development Officer Robert D. Lister. “We’ve worked closely with Ubisoft to adapt this experience specifically for IMAX VR – offering audiences a truly engaging and interactive multiplayer experience you can’t get anywhere else.”

Created for destination-based VR, Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph utilizes the powerful sense of social presence possible through virtual reality. Through hand-tracking and full-body avatars, including real-time lip-sync, players can live out their Star Trek fantasies as they operate the Starfleet ship as Captain, Engineer, Helm or Tactical. Each role is crucial to the success of the varied missions players face, and only by working together can the crew complete their objectives.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph is now available at the IMAX VR centre in Los Angeles and will be coming soon to its centres in New York and Shanghai. The experience will also be available at its upcoming centres set to open in Toronto, the UK, and other locations worldwide in the coming months.
