Future purchases of Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season on PC exclusive to the Epic Games Store

Valve will remember that.

Skybound has done a deal with Epic to bring Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season on PC to the Epic Games Store.

All future purchases of The Final Season are exclusive to the Epic Games Store, in fact. However, if you've already bought the season on a different PC platform, Steam for example, you'll still get the final two episodes from your previous point of purchase.

Skybound picked up development of The Walking Dead: The Final Season after Telltale went under in September (for more, be sure to check out our feature, Telltale's final year: a story cut short). The third episode, called Broken Toys, comes out 15th January.

The Epic Games Store is the Fortnite and Unreal engine company's attempt to take on Steam. It offers developers 88 per cent revenue share, which is more than Valve's 70 per cent standard.

It launched recently with new games from Bastion maker Supergiant, Abzû developer Giant Squid and Killing Floor studio Tripwire, timed exclusives and even free games.
