No physical version?

14 posts in this topic

I was going to pre-order the final season, and I'm the kind of guy who prefers physical games over digital ones due to a number of reasons. However, I couldn't find anything. Does anyone know anything about this? Is Telltale going fully digital from now on?

Well, the games are episodic, and so releasing them all at the same time on disc before each one is actually made and released digital would make no sense. In other words, you'd at least have to wait until they've finished the episodes, which often isn't near the release of the last episode.

That's not how it's been with Telltale's previous games. The first episode would be on the disc and would grant you with the possibility of downloading the rest once they release.

 

You could always pre-order a physical edition. It would have the same release date as the digital one. However, only the first episode would be on it. That's how it's been for years.

It has been that way with some of their games. They've also had digital only games much later been released on disc. Point of physical if you're just downloading anyway?

I like physical releases for Telltale games because I generally rent. Not the sort of I’d ever play a second time. 

 

Of course, from Telltale’s standpoint that’s a good reason NOT to have a physical release.

It is odd that they haven't announced physical editions. Game of Thrones released the disc copy before the final episode came out. Then after that, the disc copies came out a few weeks after the first episode would be released. The release date of the retail edition was announced alongside the date of the first episode.

This has been true for:

  • Minecraft: Story Mode/ Deluxe Pass/ Season 2
  • Batman/ The Enemy Within
  • The Walking Dead: The New Frontier
  • Guardians of the Galaxy

I suspect it is due to the restructuring in Telltale due to the apparent "crunch" conditions that occurred in 2014-2017

Aaaaaaaaaaand as usual, a physical copy has been announced. It will release on November 6th, the release day of Episode 3. So it seems like you at least have to download episode 4 (and perhaps episode 3 as well).

If Telltale had said before hand that there was going to be a physical release of TWD The Final Season I'd of waited & got that but like many people I was lead to believe there was going to be no physical release so went & got the digital version

Yeah, that's what they wanted you to think.
