It’s been over a couple of years since Walking Dead: The Game – Season 2 reached its conclusion. And if you feel like you’ve been waiting for ages for the next season in Telltale’s acclaimed video game adaptation of the “Walking Dead” zombie apocalypse comic book series, then you’ll be glad to know that you won’t have to wait much longer.
As announced by Telltale, the new game, which is officially called The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier, is slated to premiere about a month from now: on Tuesday, Dec. 20, to be exact. It’s set for simultaneous release on that date across the following platforms: PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Android, and, of course, iOS.
Along with the premiere date, a new piece of promotional artwork has also been released by Telltale. Check it out:
As suggested by the image, the new season sees the return of Clementine, a key character in both the first Walking Dead: The Game and the second season; in A New Frontier, she’s in her early teens and in control of herself (at least within the confines of the narrative). But it also sees the introduction of new characters, the most notable of whom is a survivor named Javier.
When family is all you have left... how far will you go to protect it? Four years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to find the family taken from him, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.- Telltale
Of course, like its predecessors, season three of Telltale’s The Walking Dead is an episodic interactive drama graphic adventure game of choice and consequence.
Check out this video, which Telltale released in June, for a glimpse into the game:
As mentioned, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier will make its long-awaited debut on Dec. 20.
But whether you’re already familiar with the series or new to it, Telltale says that it has prepared something you’ll enjoy.
