In a new post on their support website, Telltale Games has announced that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier have been cancelled.
“The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will not be available on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 game consoles,” they said. “This includes digital and disc formats.”
If you want to bring your save file forward from previous The Walking Dead seasons, Telltale explains that you’ll need access to the older console:
If you would like to import a complete save from The Walking Dead – Season Two to a different platform than you originally played the game, you will need to download and install the latest patch for The Walking Dead – Season Two. Your device will need to be online in order to download the latest patch.
Once your game is patched, you will see a new option to Upload your existing save on the in-game ‘Save Files’ menu. The Walking Dead – Season Two save you wish to use must be a complete season save to import to The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. You will also need a Telltale account to complete this process, which can be created for FREE at anytime by going to www.telltale.com.
Telltale adds that the PlayStation Vita versions of The Walking Dead don’t support the save import feature.
If you no longer have access to your previous save file, but want your choices implemented in the new season, select Episodes on the main menu of A New Frontier, then hit Continue Your Story, followed by Recreate. You’ll then need to answer some questions to determine how Season Two ended for you.
You can learn more about the import and recreation process over here, but be aware that there are major spoilers for previous seasons.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier premieres on December 20 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile devices with two episodes. The Season Pass Disc will then be available in February 2017 for PS4 and Xbox One.
As Exophase reveals, A New Frontier includes a Platinum Trophy on PS4, and it’s unlocked after finishing the season.
