All Articles: The Walking Dead Season 3

Get an “Extended Look” at Telltale’s Walking Dead: A New Frontier at the 2016 Game Awards

Not satisfied enough with releasing one trailer for an upcoming game, Telltale Games tonight also released an “Extended Look” trailer for A New Frontier, the third season of The Walking Dead. In this season, series mainstay Clementine is not the only main character. Instead, we see the zombie apocalypse through the eyes of a new character, Javier, with Clem along for the ride as a supporting character. The “Extended Look” trailer gives us a good idea of the events that befell Javier’s family at the onset of the outbreak, and then quickly jumps to the present-day, where he meets up with Clementine.

A special two-part premiere of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will be released on December 20th. The remainder of the episodes will launch in 2017.

First episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will be released on December 20


It looks like Telltale fans will have to shamble into December to get their next Walking Dead fix. Today, the developer announced that the (currently untitled) first episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will premiere on December 20.

Like with Telltale’s previous games, fans will be able to download it for a large number of platforms including the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and mobile devices. Telltale also announced that everyone who pre-orders A New Frontier on the PS4 will also receive The Walking Dead Season 2 and The Walking Dead: Michonne for free.

The digital downloads will be followed by the release of a Season Pass Disc for the PS4 and Xbox One on February 7. The Season Pass Disc will include the first episode of the season, along with downloadable access to all subsequent episodes as they become available.

When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? Four years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to find the family taken from him, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.

Telltale debuted A New Frontier’s first trailer this past Summer at the E3 Expo, but they plan to give fans a closer look at the game during this year’s Game Awards on December 1.

The Walking Dead Season 3 gets a new name and a November launch date

thewalkingdeadthenewfrontier-posterDevelopers from Telltale Games have always said they never liked referring to the third game in their Walking Dead series as The Walking Dead Season 3. Today, during a PAX West panel hosted by the publisher, the game’s official title was finally revealed…

So say hello to The Walking Dead: A New Frontier.

“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,” said Kevin Bruner, the CEO of Telltale Games. “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.”

“When we began this series, we explored what it meant to protect a character like Clementine at all costs,” said Kevin Boyle, an Executive Producer on the Walking Dead series. “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.”

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier’s first episode will be available this November for consoles, mobile devices, and the PC. Like other recent Telltale titles, a Season Pass Disc will also be available that includes the first episodes and gives players downloadable access to each subsequent episode as they’re released.

Telltale reveals new screenshots and details from The Walking Dead Season 3


Telltale Games revealed a bit more about The Walking Dead Season 3 during their trip to the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. Creative Director Dennis Lenart was joined by Melissa Hutchison (the voice actress behind Clementine) held a panel for fans and shared a new poster, new screenshots, and new details on how the third season will play out, including a little about how the two playable characters will interact:

In [the] first shot, you’ll see Javier and Clementine making their way through a walker-infested slaughterhouse. Remember, you’ll be playing as both characters, although you may not be playing each character within the same frame of time…

Lenart also discussed the importance of playing as Javier, and how the team was able to create a character without any prior relationship with Clementine. This will provide an interesting opportunity for players to meet a character they may have helped shape. They’ll also have a chance to play as a survivor fresh to the series, who is currently struggling to keep his family together in the face of the undead apocalypse.

The panelists also discussed the story structure for Season 3 and how it’ll morph depending upon if players are new to the series versus those who have imported their choices from Season 1 and Season 2:

Another unique aspect of this third season is that while it absolutely continues the story of the previous two seasons, it also serves as a new entry point for fans who’ve yet to be caught up to speed. Players starting with this third season will be introduced to young survivor AJ, who fans will recognize as the son of Rebecca from Season Two – and we can confirm that he will be making an appearance in this season as well. So players who are new to the series will have a chance to learn more about Clementine’s backstory, while at the same time, those who have played previous seasons will have a story that’s uniquely tailored to the diverging paths they’ve taken in the past.

The first episode from The Walking Dead Season 3 will be released this Fall, but you can find the new poster and screenshots after the break. (more…)

Telltale names Clem’s friend in The Walking Dead Season 3’s E3 2016 trailer

Earlier tonight, Telltale Games unveiled the E3 2016 trailer for The Walking Dead Season 3. Now, they’ve given a name to Clementine’s mysterious friend, and revealed he’ll be a second playable character in the game.

First things first, the character’s name is Javier, and he’s a survivor just like Clem. In many ways, The Walking Dead Season 3 will be a completely new story, and Javier’s role is a way for players to “jump right in without feeling lost at all.”

What else is going on in The Walking Dead Season 3 trailer? Here, I’ll let Telltale explain it:

For a start, who’s that guy with Clementine? His name is Javier. Yes, Clem returns and will play a key role, but this is a new story as much as it is a continuation of Seasons One and Two. Players completely new to the Telltale series will be able to jump right in without feeling lost at all, and those familiar with previous seasons will perhaps find some even deeper meaning, as we’ll be working to ensure save file decisions will carry over from the last two games if you’ve played them in the past.

When it comes to Clementine, players’ relationships with her have very much evolved over the course of Seasons One and Two. In Season One, it was all about playing a more paternal role and helping a little girl find her feet and the courage to survive in a world gone to hell. Season Two was about Clementine developing her skills and becoming more independent of the people around her. In this next season, she’s in her early teens, and has grown to be a person who is clearly capable of handling herself – someone very much on the same level as Javier, a fellow survivor who has been through hell, and has managed to remain alive as long as Clem.

Clem has also been through a lot since we left her at the end of Season Two… and depending on the paths players may have taken with her in the past, she may or may not be exactly the same person we knew back then. You’ll play as both Javier and Clementine through the course of the season, but exactly how that works is one of the exciting details we’re not quite yet ready to reveal.

The first episode in The Walking Dead Season 3 will be released for the PC, consoles, and mobile devices this Fall.

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.
