Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space
Hits Xbox LIVE Arcade this Wednesday, October 14

Gas up the Desoto and Grab Your
Fedora … The Second Season of Everyone’s Favorite Freelance Police is coming to

Xbox 360 owning fans of talking
anthropomorphic dogs, hyperactive rabbity things and great gaming comedy
rejoice! Telltale today announced that Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space will
launch on Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday. All five critically-acclaimed
episodes of the award-winning series’ second season will be bundled together and
sell for 1600 Microsoft Points – a great deal for five games at only 320 points

Like Sam & Max Save the World, the
XBLA version of Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space will include achievements, HD
graphic support, localized subtitles for German, French, Italian and Spanish,
and a custom control scheme adapted specifically for the Xbox 360. Additionally,
a second Sam & Max Xbox picture pack will release on Wednesday.

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space pits
the Freelance Police against the surreal and supernatural, with the duo facing
off against a demon-possessed Santa Claus, gigantic robots, and an emo vampire
amassing an army of rave-loving zombies. Mariachis will sing, dead goldfish will
prophesize, and Hell just might freeze over, and when friends are caught in the
crossfire, Sam & Max risk their very souls to set things right. With an
overarching story told throughout five action-packed episodes, the second season
of Sam & Max is brimming with mind-bending puzzles, exotic environments and the
unhinged humor fans have come to expect from Telltale.

And that’s not all! The Xbox LIVE
debut of the second season provides Telltale fans with a fountainhead of
inspiration for the studio’s annual Halloween contest which has just kicked off,
offering the potential to win a gaming console of their choice and more fabulous
prizes! Telltale fans are encouraged to submit creations inspired by any of our
games. Previous notable entries include a custom Max hand puppet and a dog
costume of Sam made entirely out of used underwear. Classy! For more submissions
from years past, additional details and official rules for this year’s contest

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space is
the follow up to Sam & Max Save the World, the first season of the series, which
premiered on Xbox LIVE Arcade in June. All six episodes of that season are now
available for purchase on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360, along with gamer
pics and a profile theme.

More great Telltale episodes will
join the Xbox LIVE Arcade line up in November with the release of additional
Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures. Fright of the Bumblebees, the premiere
episode of the series, is available now on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
