[WD] PS3 Walking Dead Unlock Not Working!!!

posted by simsea0330 on - last edited - Viewed by 3K users

I purchased the season pass from Gamestop earlier today and then redeemed the code on my PS3, it downloaded a walking dead theme and a "episode 1 - a new day (full game) unlocker" and the unlocker downloaded but nothing is showing up after that and I don't know how to get to the actual game. HELP!

  • This is the same problem I'm having but this isn't fixing it.
    Idownloaded the trial for PS3 in the UK when it came out, and today bought the Season Pass.
    I downloaded the unlock and the theme, and it says they've downloaded but the theme isn't there and the demo just keeps on cutting out when it gets to the end.
    I've tried 'Downlad All', I've tried downloading them seperately, I even tried deleting the demo, just downloading the unlock, and that didnt work. So I've redownloaded the demo and the unlock AGAIN and it still not working.
    Can anyone help me PLEEEEASE!

  • Yeah I cant unlock the next episode and i did but that season pass what do i do?

    Sorry, but this is something you would need to contact Sony support for help with. Downloading both the trial and the unlock file is the correct way to do it, so if that's not working for you, there's not much I would be able to do to help, unfortunately.

    The Walking Dead is an episodic game. The second episode will be out soon, but it hasn't been released yet.

  • I found the answer!! It seems tech support is a oxymoron. I had exactly the same issue. After reading some postings a user mentioned he could not activate The Walking Dead theme. I then went to Themes and tried to select an object that was only listede a "theme". After which the following text came up:

    To access the content your must activate this system.
    Sign on with the account that was used to purchase this content, select [System Activation under [PlayStation Network] > [Account Management], and then activate this system.

    I searched around on the PSN page but found nothing on activation.

    I then used the XMB and went to the PlayStation Network Icon>Account Management>System Activation>PS3 System>Game

    After activation I was able to download the episode 1 unlock, episode 2 and was able to apply the theme.

    I should get a refund for fixing the PSN tech support issues.

    I hope this helps you all!! Good luck and don't let the zombies get you.

  • You, sir, are a genius. I've spent days trying to get an answer from Sony. This is fantastic. Thank you so much!

  • I brought the season pass today for £15.00 BUT i cant find the demo on the ps store!

    Do a search for 'Walking Dead' and you'll see it in the results list.

  • I found that the reason mine wasn't working was I got the full game unlock but the chapters kept saying get and I tried all of the solutions here but none worked so finally I hit get and I find that after buying the unlock the chapters were free so you have to buy them seperatley I hope this helps!

    Omg!!! you are a genius bro! thank you!!! i was getting so pissed!!!
    I never thought about hitting "get"! i thought it would all get downloaded when i downloaded the season pass thing. Thanks dude!!!

  • Its telling me that 400 DAYS has been installed but it doesn't show up as an option. I have episode one, chapter one installed (Ive finished the game). For some reason I have the disc version and digital version in my download list. Ive already spoken with PSN tech and they could figure it out either. PLEASE HELP :confused:
