If you managed to bite your lip through all of the hype surrounding Telltale’s ridiculously popular episodic The Walking Dead series on PlayStation 3 – well done, you’ll be able to grab the first two episodes for free as part of next month’s PlayStation Plus update.

Both episodes one and two will be available at no extra cost from 7th August. They’ll be joined by 20% discounts on PSN Play promoted titles, The Expendables 2 and Sound Shapes.

As always, further discounts are pledged for later in the month – with “more additions to your Instant Game Collection and additional awesome sauce” on the way. It’s worth adding that this information only applies to North America at the moment, with European details expected in the coming days.

We suspect those of you that haven’t bought The Walking Dead yet will be happy with this announcement, while the rest of you casually grumble into your keyboards. Are we correct?
