Telltale Games has announced that the third season of The Walking Dead will premiere this November. In a press release, the developer said that the series will also be available for purchase on a Season Pass disc for consoles, which will include the premiere episode of A New Frontier as well as access to all subsequent episodes (five total) for download as they become available. CEO Kevin Bruner wrote:
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.
Players will assume the role of newcomer Javier, who is described as “a man struggling to keep his family together in the new world.” They’ll also play as Clementine, who is “now a teenage survivor holding secrets of her past while fighting to protect family of her own.”
Executive Producer Kevin Boyle added:
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.
We’ll update our readers when an exact release date is announced.
