As you begin your game, you’ll be asked to choose how you prefer to control Lee and the interactions he has within the world. Device control lets you use the dual analog sticks and button controls to search the zombie-ravaged environments, pick up items, speak with other characters or defend yourself from the Walkers. Choosing touch controls allows you to directly control Lee’s story by tapping the game world via the PS Vita touchscreen.
Throughout the game, you’ll face a series of life or death, kill-or-be-killed decisions. As you interact with characters that Lee meets, you can choose different ways of talking to them. The responses that you give to their questions, or how you react to the scenarios that you’re in will directly influence how the storyline progresses; characters may choose to trust you, to be wary of you – or to be outright hostile.
You’ll only have a short amount of time to decide how to approach each situation, so you’ll need to think fast as one wrong decision could put you and your friends in the path of the Walkers lurking around every corner. By investigating the world around you, you can scavenge items that can be used as weapons against the zombies or other items that could prove vital to Lee’s survival. Most of all, it’s the human interactions and moral choices that you’ll face that will mean the difference between staying alive or joining the horrifying undead who roam the land.
