The third season of Telltale’s smash hit narrative series, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A new Frontier, debuts in November.
The new season features Clementine, a young girl who seems to be getting older, even as she’s growing up in the horrific zombie universe of The Walking Dead. Telltale unveiled the game’s launch window today at the PAX West fan event in Seattle. Fans should go crazy, as the first two episodic series of the long-running story-based game were extremely popular for the gripping drama and wrenching choices that players had to make, usually about who to save when you can’t save everybody from the zombie and survivalist threats.
The game will debut on consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile platforms. The series will also be available for purchase on a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ for consoles, which will include the premiere episode for the third season, as well as access to all subsequent episodes in the five episode season for download as they become available.
“This third new season will serve as both a continuation of what’s come before in our story, as well as an all-new beginning set nearly four years after the outbreak events of Season One,” said Kevin Bruner, cofounder and CEO of Telltale Games, in a statement. “As a harrowing and horrific drama, ‘A New Frontier’ will explore beyond what it means to survive in a world ravaged by the undead, and will see our characters confronting the new rules of order and justice in a land being brutally reclaimed and rediscovered by what’s left of humanity itself.”
Players will take control of series newcomer Javier, a man struggling to keep his family together in the new world, while also playing as Clementine, now a teenage survivor holding secrets of her past while fighting to protect family of her own.
“When we began this series, we explored what it meant to protect a character like Clementine at all costs,” said Kevin Boyle, executive producer on the series, in a statement. “Years later, meeting her for the first time, Javier will begin to unravel the mystery of who Clementine has become, as her story intersects with his — both of them still driven by the things they value most long after society’s collapse.”
