The third season of The Walking Dead from Telltale Games will launch on December 20 with a two-part episode. The Ties That Bind Part I and Part II, will serve as a new lilypad for players and newcomers to start with.
Returning protagonist from the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, Clementine, returns and will share primary roles with newcomer, Javier.
A physical copy will also be available for purchase in February which will have the first two episodes on disc with all subsequent episodes available for download.
When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? 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 protect his family, 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.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will act as both a new beginning for players fresh to the series and unfamiliar with Clementine, as well as a continuation for players who have experienced Seasons One and Two. Players new to the series will be able to start a story that is tailored to this new beginning. Players continuing onward from prior seasons will have multiple options for quickly configuring their tailored backstory, or importing past save files from various platforms. Additional information on this feature will be detailed in the coming week.
