Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space will launch on the Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday. All five critically-acclaimed episodes of the award-winning series’ second season will be bundled together and sell for 1600 Microsoft Points.
Like Sam & Max Save the World, the XBLA version of Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space will include achievements, HD graphic support, localized subtitles for German, French, Italian and Spanish, and a custom control scheme adapted specifically for the Xbox 360.
Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space pits the Freelance Police against the surreal and supernatural, with the duo facing off against a demon-possessed Santa Claus, gigantic robots, and an emo vampire amassing an army of rave-loving zombies. Mariachis will sing, dead goldfish will prophesize, and Hell just might freeze over. When friends are caught in the crossfire, Sam & Max risk their very souls to set things right. With an overarching story told throughout five episodes, the second season of Sam & Max is brimming with mind-bending puzzles, exotic environments and the unhinged humor fans have come to expect from Telltale.
And that’s not all! The Xbox LIVE debut of the second season provides Telltale fans with inspiration for the studio’s annual Halloween contest which has just kicked off, offering the potential to win a gaming console of their choice and more fabulous prizes! Telltale fans are encouraged to submit creations inspired by any of their games. Previous notable entries include a custom Max hand puppet and a dog costume of Sam made entirely out of used underwear.
