Telltale Publishing has announced that the hit survival-crafting game 7 Days to Die (made by the Fun Pimps) will be landing on Xbox One and PS4 next month. It will arrive in North America as both a digital and a retail product, and as a digital product in Europe. Both console versions will launch on June 28th with a price tag of $29.99 USD. The console versions of 7 Days to Die are already available for preorder at places like Amazon, Best Buy, GAME, and GameStop. There is also a preorder bonus in the form of 5 exclusive skins from Telltale’s The Walking Dead (including Lee and Michonne).
For those wondering if these skins will come to the PC version of the game, it is being considered according to a pinned thread on the impending console launch in the game’s Steam forums. It is not known yet if or when it will happen, or whether it will be a free update or a paid DLC. Of course, it would be a poor move not to add them to the PC version, as that would be a less than satisfactory way to treat the core fan base on the PC (who have made the game the success that it is). For now, PC players will just have to watch and see what they decide to do. In the meantime, today’s press release also included a short interview with the developers for you to watch:
