Today, Telltale Games and Skybound Entertainment announced that the first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season will launch later this year, with the opening episode debuting on August 14, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a Nintendo Switch release planned later this year. You can check out a brand new trailer for the upcoming season below, which shows Clementine going over the rules for encountering a zombie.
The final season of the game will see Clementine – now a fierce and capable survivor – still searching for a permanent home while also trying to build a life and become a leader. In her travels, she befriends and must protect AJ, an orphaned boy and the only thing like a family that she has left. The Walking Dead: The Final Season is available for preorder starting June 8th, and all players who preorder the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will receive immediate access to The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection, which gathers all 19 existing episodes into one bundle.
