All Articles: The Walking Dead Season 3

Xbox Store Today: Walking Dead New Frontier, Shantae Half-Genie Hero, Wick, more

The dead still walk! Telltale Games has launched the opening chapters of their latest Walking Dead adaptation, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. Available to download now for the Xbox One, the two-part premiere, Ties That Bind, reintroduces fans to a teenage Clementine.

Also available to download today on the Xbox One is Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the latest game in WayForward’s retro-styled series. Shantae may have made the move to high definition, but players will still get to whip out her “devastating Hair-Whip Attack” as they take on the minions of “bodacious buccaneer” Risky Boots.

Finally, Wick brings ghost stories to life on the Xbox One. Players will explore a local legend about “the long lost children in the woods who can still be seen,” but be careful, they’re only visible by candlelight.

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

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, Fruit Ninja VR, more added to PS Store

After more than a year of teasing, Clementine will return to our screens this week in Telltale’s The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, which is now available to download for the PS4 through the PlayStation Store. The special two-part premiere, Ties That Bind, will also introduce us to Javier, the co-protagonist of this post-apocalyptic tale.

It’s not all doom and gloom in this week’s PlayStation Store update, as WayForward plans to reintroduce gamers to Shantae’s side-scrolling adventures in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. Available to download now for the PS4 and PS Vita, Half-Genie Hero brings back the character’s “devastating Hair-Whip Attack” in another bid to save Sequin-Land.

Finally this week, a handful of PlayStation VR games are now available to download including Fruit Ninja VR, which gives players a virtual samurai sword and asks them to slice and dice a wide variety of oranges, melons, and grapefruits “without all the mess.”

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And, as always, a complete listing of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier gets a Launch Trailer ahead of December 20 release

The Walking Dead‘s midseason finale airs tonight on AMC, and Telltale has decided to fill our Sunday with even more zombies by also unveiling the Launch Trailer for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier.

A New Frontier will kick off on December 20 with a special two-episode premiere. And to further drive home how connected these episodes are, Telltale has even titled them Ties That Bind Part I and Ties That Bind Part II.

Whether they’re exploring Clementine’s world for the first time, or importing choices from the previous seasons, Telltale wants to show players just how important the bonds of friendship can be in the Launch Trailer when Clementine introduces herself to newcomer Javier:

When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? 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 protect his family, 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.

In the full launch trailer for the two-part premiere, we further explore the dire situation that brings newcomer Javier and his family together with the young survivor Clementine. We also catch a glimpse of familiar faces from The Walking Dead universe such as Jesus, while also getting some clues on exactly what this “New Frontier” represents…

Ties That Bind Part I and Ties That Bind Part II will be available to download for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices on December 20.

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.

thewalkingdeadanewfrontier-header

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

walkingdeadseason3-header

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…)
