The second season of Walking Dead: The Game is set to launch for consoles later this month, and for iOS soon after. However, in a recent Twitter update from developer Telltale Games (@telltalegreens) it's been confirmed ahead of schedule that another character, Omid, will be returning in the sequel. Telltale Games' Twitter update reads: "A familiar face returns in #TheWalkingDead Season Two premiere episode, 'All That Remains,' releasing this month." Included is a picture depicting Omid along with Clementine, who is also returning in the second season. In a number of further Twitter updates, Telltale Games also confirmed that the second season of Walking Dead: The Game will be launching for the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One this month. More importantly, a release for iOS and other mobile platforms is planned for soon after, the developer added. Back in October, a few details concerning the sequel, and particularly the character of Clementine, were shared by Telltale Games:
An unnamed Telltale spokesperson reportedly told IGN that the second season of The Walking Dead: The Game “will continue the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned at the outset of the undead apocalypse, now left to her own devices to seek safety and survive in a world gone mad.” The developer continues: “Now assuming the role of an ordinary child, players will struggle to outwit both the dead and the living in situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions.”Also included with the above news was a "reveal trailer" for the game, which is embedded below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilEB4KTTOIo
