The third season of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead is coming in hot! This summer we got our first peek at the new season, and just a week ago it was announced that the official title would be The Walking Dead: A New Frontier and that it would be released starting on December 20th.
For The Game Awards 2016 last night, a new extended first look at the game was shared and can be seen below. It mainly focuses on one of the new characters and his family at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. But it does jump ahead at one point and bring in an old friend for a cameo as well. In addition to the extended first look, it was also revealed that the first episode of the five-episode new season will actually be a double-dose two-episode release. So instead of having to wait for four episodes to release after the first, you’ll get to binge the first two and only have to wait for three more.
Here’s a description of the new season’s story:
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.
If you want to lock up the whole season, a disc version is being released on February 14th which includes the first episode and allows you to download future episodes as they are released. The disc option can be pre-ordered for Xbox One and PS4.
In this first look at ‘The Walking Dead – A New Frontier’, we meet Javier. We witness how the beginning of the zombie plague affected him and his family before we move forward in time to years later, where he encounters a very familiar face…
