Last week, Telltale Games hit The Game Awards with a brand new look at the highly anticipated third season of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series. The developer also revealed that the first two episodes of the season, “Episode One: Ties That Bind Part I”, and “Episode Two: Ties That Bind Part II”, will be launching on December 20th. With the date fast approaching, Telltale has released the full launch trailer–and it’s quite the doozy. Check it out at the top of the page.
In the video above, we get a closer look at the dire situation that binds Javier and his family to Clementine, the seasoned series’ survivor who’s been with us since day one. But Clem wasn’t the only familiar face who showed up. Jesus, who has appeared in both Robert Kirkman’s comic book series and AMC’s popular television show, also made an appearance in the trailer!
Here is the full plot teaser:
“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.”
Clementine also teased a bit more about the New Frontier who she said “used to be decent people” but are now “something else. We’re officially dying to see how this all plays out.
If you haven’t had a chance to get into the series (go play it now) don’t worry. According to Telltale, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will act as a new beginning of sorts for players who aren’t familiar with Clementine’s past adventures, but also as a continuation for those who’ve played through the first two seasons. Fans who’ve played the game before will have several options at the beginning of the game to tailor their characters’ backstory, or import save files.
The Walking Dead: Season 3 creeps to PS4, Xbox One, PC, STEAM, iOS, and Android on December 20, 2016.
