'The Walking Dead' full-season disc coming December 4th to PS3, 360

Telltale Games' entire episodic series of The Walking Dead adventure games will be available in a single-disc collection on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on December 4th in North America, the studio announced recently.

Telltale told Polygon in July that a disc release would be available at retail after the digital release of the fifth and final episode, and that it plans to do more Walking Dead seasons in the future.

In response to a fan asking if a full-season disc version is coming, the official Telltale Games Twitter account said, "As a matter of fact, yes! Entire season on disc. Dec 4th in NA for Xbox 360 and PS3." According to Telltale, a European release date is still undetermined.

The game's first season contains five planned episodes, three of which — "A New Day," "Starved For Help," and "Long Road Ahead" — are already available on PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. (Episodes One and Two are also out on iOS; a release date on that platform for Episode Three is "very close," according to Telltale.) The full-season release date means that Telltale intends to launch the final two episodes, "Around Every Corner" and "No Time Left," by December 4th.

Telltale has not announced a price for the full-season disc release, or plans for a PC version. On PSN, XBLA, and PC, the game's season pass — the package that provides access to all five episodes as they launch — costs $24.99.

We've reached out to Telltale for more details, and we'll update this post if they tell us something.

Update: A Telltale Games representative told Polygon that the five-episode retail bundle will cost $29.99 at stores throughout North America, and that details on releases in Europe and other territories are coming soon.
