Telltale Games has made the first episode of the critically acclaimed Walking Dead video game available for free to anyone on Xbox Live.

For a limited time, Xbox 360 owners who have yet to download one of 2012's best games can now get the first installment of the episodic adventure game for the low, low price of free.

IGN is reporting Telltale confirmed it will be a limited offer, and will only last until Dec. 31st. To make the deal even better, for one day only starting Dec. 28th, the remaining four episodes will be part of the Xbox Live Countdown to 2013 sale.

Now you not only get to play the game everyone's been talking about, you get to do it on the cheap too.
