Season three of Telltale Games’ hit point-and-click take on The Walking Dead arrives in just one short week. And as we found out recently with the release of an extended first look at the game, the new season, officially titled The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, kicks off with not just one episode as it has in the past, but with two of the five total episodes.
Instead of waiting until closer to December 20th, Telltale, like an excited child on Christmas morn’, has released a launch trailer for the new season a week early. The trailer includes new peeks at the season, and even a cameo from another familiar character to those who also watch AMC’s The Walking Dead TV series and of course those who read the comics all of these things are based on. Check it out below.
This isn’t the first time a character from the show has made an appearance in the video game series. Back in season one, for example, both Glenn and Herschel showed up.
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 can be pre-ordered digitally now. Doing so for PS4 comes with some excellent bonus goodies. A physical release of the season can be pre-ordered for Xbox One and PS4 as well. It includes the beginning of the season on disc, and will allow you to download future episodes when they are released.
