From today, at 9AM GMT (2AM PDT), you can play Telltale’s Wallace & Gromit Episode 1: Fright of the Bumblebees on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360. Wallace & Gromit Episode 1 will be available worldwide (except in India and Japan) for 800 Microsoft Points (that’s US$10 / €9.60 / £6.80 / CAN$12.40).

Join Wallace & Gromit in Fright of the Bumblebees, the first of four grand adventures! The inventor and his loyal pooch are faced with a big problem. They need 50 gallons of honey by tonight – far more than their bees can handle! When Wallace’s plans to step up production go horribly awry, it falls to Gromit to fight off the angry swarm. Featuring a brand new story with the same slapstick humour, cinematic visuals, and charm fans of the Wallace & Gromit films have come to love, Fright of the Bumblebees kicks off this four-episode series in cracking style!
