During PAX West 2016, perhaps one of the biggest gaming events on the West Coast, Telltale Games has announced their latest chapter in The Walking Dead series. The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier, which is the third in the series, will introduce a newcomer to the series, Javier, a main character who is attempting to keep his sanity and keep his family together during all of this chaos that’s going on. Players will also take up the role of fan favorite, Clementine, now as a teenager who is also trying to keep everything she has together.
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier will be premiering this November on consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile platforms. A special “Season Pass Disc” will also be available on consoles, which will include the premiere episode for the third season and access to all subsequent episodes in the five episode season for download as they become available.
Check out the E3 trailer announcement back in June:
Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games says:
“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. 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.”
Kevin Boyle, Executive Producer of this series says, “When we began this series, we explored what it meant to protect a character like Clementine at all costs. 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.”
Definitely looks like Telltale Games is trying to put that emphasize on survival, which is the underlying tone of The Walking Dead, yet was a common complaint of the recent games in the series.
