The Walking Dead: The Final Season has now begun

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I Clementine

After four seasons of mental and physical anguish, plucky orphan Clementine is nearing the end of her story. The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is out now, with three more to follow over the coming months. Telltale say that this is the end of the story of Clementine, who's now found herself an orphan of her own to look after, though I don't know if I'd also take that to mean this is their final Walking Dead game. Either way, the first episode is out now, and has a demo already out so you can play the beginning of the beginning of the beginning of the end for yourself.

Telltale say we will get to "define your relationships, fight the undead, and determine how Clementine's story ends." I'm going to go out on the limb and guess the options there are: badly; quite badly; badly with a glimmer of hope; and terribly.

The Walking Dead: The Final Season is out now on Steam and GOG for £19/$20/€24 and yes, those currency exchange rates are surprising to me too.

The Final Season can import save files from earlier games to carry across some decisions and consequences, though if you've lost those over the years or want to try something different you can build Clem's story in the Story Builder to import into the game.
