All Articles: The Walking Dead: Michonne

Xbox Store Today: Hitman Ep 2, Walking Dead Michonne Ep 3, Elite Dangerous Arena, more

Today’s Xbox Games Store update is making it a good time to be a fan of episodic gaming.

Players who wished for more entries in Sierra’s King’s Quest (Xbox One, Xbox 360) series will be able to continue the adventures of King Graham today in the third episode, Once Upon A Climb. A much bloodier type of adventure can be found in IO Interactive’s Hitman (Xbox One), but that’s not going to stop Agent 47 from meeting his target on the fictional Italian coastal town of Sapienza.

Also this week, Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Michonne (Xbox One, Xbox 360) will come to an end with the third episode, What We Deserve. “Michonne tries to protect an innocent family, but Norma and the vengeful Monroe crew are closing in,” reads the episode’s description. Sounds intense.

Elsewhere on the Xbox Games Store, annoying partygoers will meet their doom in Party Hard, a stealth game for the Xbox One where players permanently evict the worst noise polluters. And Elite Dangerous: Arena adds head-to-head dogfighting to the Elite: Dangerous universe as both a standalone expansion or a free add-on for the main game.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

The Walking Dead Season 3 tease from Robert Kirkman reveals an older Clementine

Robert Kirkman is the creator of the Walking Dead comic book and the guiding hand behind the megafranchise’s expansion into television, novels, and video games. So Telltale Games recently gave him the chance to talk about his thoughts on The Walking Dead: Michonne, which came to a conclusion yesterday.

In the video, Kirkman praises the Telltale team for their fine work, and reveals that several of the game’s plot points came directly from his notes for Michonne’s absence in issue #126. The writer also couldn’t resist teasing The Walking Dead Season 3, and confirmed that fans of the series are in store for another time jump:

“Season 3 of the Telltale series is really exciting to me. The way that the timeline works, Season 3 will actually be getting pretty close to where we are in the comics concurrently,” said Kirkman. “We’ll be checking in on Clementine again, so we’ll be seeing her, seeing where she’s at and what’s going on with her which is going to be great. But also similar to the Michonne series there will probably be some more comic book elements that we’ll be working into it in some interesting ways. I don’t want to spoil too much…”

The first episode of The Walking Dead Season 3 will be released sometime this year.

Alienation, Hitman: Episode 2, Walking Dead Michonne: Episode 3, more added to PS Store

Sony’s Launch Party promotion reached the end with yesterday’s addition of Alienation to the PlayStation Store. Developed by marquee game developer Housemarque, the PS4 game is a twin-stick shooter where up to four players can try to save Earth from a huge alien invasion.

Also available to download today is Severed from DrinkBox Studios (quasi-related side note… Ecto Cooler is coming back). The Vita game makes extensive use of the handheld’s touchscreen and asks players to solve puzzles, find secrets, and do battle with a host of disturbing monsters. Speaking of disturbing monsters, annoying partygoers have sealed their fate in Party Hard, a stealth game for the PS4 where players permanently evict the worst noise polluters.

There’s also an episodic bounty of riches on the PlayStation Store this week as three titles received new entries. Episode 2 of Hitman (PS4) takes the story to the fictional Italian coastal island of Sapienza, while Sierra’s King’s Quest (PS3, PS4) reaches new heights in its third episode, Once Upon A Climb. And Telltale closes the book on The Walking Dead: Michonne (PS3, PS4) with the third, and final, episode: What We Deserve.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a visit to the PlayStation Blog will reveal this week’s new game add-ons and discounts. (more…)

The Walking Dead: Michonne’s final episode will be available on April 26

Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Michonne miniseries will come to an end next week with the launch of its final episode, “What We Deserve.” The developer has also released a new trailer recapping the second episode, “Give No Shelter.” Needless to say, it is filled to the brim with spoilers. But if you’re ready to continue Michonne’s story, the third episode will offer plenty of thrills and more tough choices:

In “What We Deserve,” feeling the weight of choices both recent and long ago, Michonne tries to protect an innocent family… but Norma and the vengeful Monroe crew are closing in. As reality shatters and the ghosts of the daughters she abandoned demand to be heard, your choices will determine who lives, who dies, and what redemption really means in a world gone to hell.

The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 3 – “What We Deserve” will be available to download for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and mobile devices (iOS and Android) on April 26.

The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 2 will be released on March 29

Telltale has announced that the second episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne will be released on March 29. Titled “Give No Shelter,” Michonne is on the run from the leaders of Monroe while memories of her daughter cloud her thoughts:

In Episode 2, “Give No Shelter,” a daring escape from the floating colony of Monroe sees Michonne, Pete, and Sam running for their lives. An all too brief reprieve is soon shattered; the leaders of Monroe don’t forgive and don’t forget. With memories of her daughters bleeding ever further into Michonne’s blurred reality, her world is becoming increasingly fractured… just at the point when she’ll need all of her skills to survive.

In development for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and mobile devices, The Walking Dead: Michonne is a three-episode miniseries set within the universe of The Walking Dead comic. A new trailer highlighting some of the choices available in the first episode, “In Too Deep,” has been embedded above.

The miniseries will conclude in April with the final episode, “What We Deserve.”

Xbox Store Today: Far Cry Primal, PvZ Garden Warfare 2, The Walking Dead Michonne, more

farcryprimal-header

Today’s Xbox Games Store update is all about scary things… cannibals, zombies, dying alone in the wilderness, and that thing on Gorbachev’s head.

The hero of Far Cry: Primal (Xbox One), Takkar, will have to spend his days dodging cannibals as he fights for survival in the game’s prehistoric locales. Thankfully, Takkar will be able to rely on his own tribe to help him out, and the wild animals that he tames including elephants, tigers, and wolves. In the Stone Age, it’s easy to show those cannibals who’s really on top of the food chain.

Zombies don’t usually munch on brains, but Telltale’s smart adaptation of The Walking Dead saga gets a new chapter today with the release of The Walking Dead: Michonne (Xbox One and Xbox 360). Players will take control of the character’s famed sword in a story that explores Michonne’s absence between issues #126 and #139 of the comic book… “and what brought her back.” A different sort of undead are at the center of EA’s Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 (Xbox One), but the team-based shooter includes a ton of new maps and modes for fans of the series.

Also available today is The Flame in the Flood (Xbox One), is “a wilderness survival game in which a girl and her dog travel by foot and by raft down a procedurally-generated river.”

Finally today, Reagan Gorbachev (Xbox One) will fight back against a group of extremists in a top-down shooter using “their fists and samurai swords and poison darts and pistols and shotguns and fully automatic assault rifles and grenade launchers and miniguns and bazookas and some other guns.” Sure… why not?

More information on all of these (along with a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
