The Walking Dead: The Game – Episode 2: Starving for Help – is the 2nd of five planned episodes for the game. It picks up the tale of Lee Everett, a convicted murderer, living in the first few days of the zombie apocalypse. It takes place three months after the events of the first episode, beginning with some dialogue between Lee and another central character, depending on who you saved/interacted with. Episode two will focus around survival as your camp is now out of food.
According to our recent preview of the episode, your decisions from episode one will play a "vital role" in the entire Starving for Help story.
