According to a report by Express, Xbox One owners can now enjoy three “Walking Dead” titles through the program. The games are “The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series,” “The Walking Dead: Season 2,” and “The Walking Dead: Michonne.”

The first two titles comprise of five-episode seasons while the latter is a three-episode series revolving around the character Michonne. “The Walking Dead Telltale Series” is an interactive survival horror game that was released on Xbox 360 back in 2012. On the other hand, “The Walking Dead: Season 2” came out on the same console in December 2013.

Meanwhile, “The Walking Dead: Michonne” came out just last year.

Xbox One owners who have a physical copy of any of the three games can start playing using the Xbox One console. For gamers who opted for the digital copy, the games are automatically loaded in the Download list. For players who do not have the titles, they are still available at the Xbox Store.
