The Walking Dead season 3 shambling towards Dec 20th

The third season of Telltale’s episodic The Walking Dead story-o-adventures will kick off on December 20th, the developers announced today. Clementine will return once more with new pals/future corpses and oh gosh is the world still full of wandering zombies? You’d think that rotten mob would’ve settled down by now. The third season continues Telltale’s wacky new policy of superlong names, bearing the official title The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier [official site]. Nailed it.

This season premiere is actually delayed a touch, as we last heard it’d start in November. Anywho, here’s a brief synopsis from Telltale:

“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 say they plan to show off a smidge of the game during Sid Meier’s Tom Clancy’s Keighley Geoffgame Video Gaming Videogame Game Game Golden Olden Game Gold Award Ceremony Prizefest-o-rama on Thursday, December 1st.

    Season 2 and the Michonne “barely a game” put me off this series. That synopsis is only helping reaffirm that decision.

  2. Kefren says:

    Although they weren’t much “game” I used to enjoy these – but the unskippable “NEXT TIME ON THE WALKING DEAD!” and “LAST TIME ON THE WALKING DEAD!” really pissed me off. Spoilers + treating me like a moron.

    • Dare_Wreck says:

      Kefren, you have to realize that those two “features” are intended for the players that play each episode as they are released. The “last time” bit is necessary to refresh the player’s mind as to what happened when they last played the game a few months earlier, and the “next time” is there to entice you to buy the next episode. If there’s anything stupid about them, it’s that there’s no option to turn them off once you own every episode.

      • Kefren says:

        Even if you buy it episode by episode it should be skippable – I did it this way the first time, and never forgot what had happened. By all means leave it in, but make it skippable – or drop it completely when the episodes are available as one game. No other game I own insists on telling me what happened earlier in the campaign.

        As to the spoilers “coming next time” – that’s idiotic on TV or games. The only reasons they’re used are: 1) to pad time out on TV; and 2) because they worry it wasn’t good enough to tempt you to buy the next episode/watch the programme next time. Neither apply when you own the full game. And to make them unskippable is crud.

    I’m calling right now that in the final episode we’ll have to choose between saving Clementine and one of the guy’s kids.

  4. Phantom_Renegade says:

    Trump won. The thoroughly mediocre WD series gets a third season instead of actual good TT games like Tales from the Borderlands or Wolf Among us. Truly, this is the darkest timeline.

  5. Antongranis says:

    I prefer to wait until all the episodes are out.

  6. MattM says:

    I’m unironically stoked for season three of this. I have a long list of complaints about both season 1 and 2 but still enjoyed the heck out of both seasons and am looking forward to the continuing adventures of Clem.
    Also, TEAM KENNY 4LF you heathen fu****s.
