Promising a perfect introduction for new players, and a custom tailored continuation for long term fans, The Walking Dead – A New Frontier is due to arrive this December 20th. Bringing two playable characters in the shape of series mainstay Clementine, no longer a bad-ass child, now she’s a bad-ass teenager, and playing the wised mentor to a new character, Javier.
The thing that interests me the most, is that Telltale are offering a series of choices to customize your story, made before the game properly begins. Sounds like something akin to the short digital comic that BioWare did for Mass Effect on the PlayStation 3 before they released the original game in the triple pack for that platform. Also, they’re saying you can import your save file (which isn’t that surprising) from “various platforms” (which is).
Does this mean you can, for example, take your save file from a PC version of the game, and use them to fire up your story on mobile devices? It wouldn’t be the first time a company has offered cross platform support. The above mentioned Mass Effect allowed weapons from the Collector’s Edition of the second game to be usable on both 360 and PC. But it’s still really sweet if that’s what they actually mean. With not one, but two episodes arriving on the same day, that’s a hell of a lot of Walking Dead goodness right on our doorsteps. Which leaves only one, burning, essential question unanswered.
Where’s Kenny? And more importantly, where the freaky deaks is his kick-ass beard?!
Today we can share the full launch trailer for The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier, the all-new season in the critically-acclaimed series. The season debuts on December 20th taking form of a special two-part premiere with two episodes debuting on the same day: Episode One: ‘Ties That Bind’ Part I & Episode Two: ‘Ties That Bind’ Part II.
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…
