The Walking Dead gets a collector's edition for its retail release, because that's how video games work now.

Telltale Games’ critically acclaimed game based on the cross-media juggernaut The Walking Dead will not only be coming to retail later this year, but a collector’s edition will also be on tap.

Announced earlier today via a press release, the collector’s edition will be available exclusively at GameStop — and exclusively via preorder — for $69.99. Included in the package is a copy of The Walking Dead Compendium One, which collects issues 1-48 of the comic and weighs in at a whopping 1,000+ pages, and a copy of the game. Both the game and comic are decorated with exclusive cover art by The Walking Dead comic artist Charlie Adlard and look very handsome indeed.

If collector’s editions aren’t your bag, you can still buy the standalone game for $29.99. Both editions will release on December 4th.
