Telltale Games lift the lid on the third season of The Walking Dead.
During Telltale’s panel at PAX West yesterday new details were announced for the new season of The Walking Dead, which is now subtitled A New Frontier.
The new series features the return of the much-loved Clementine as well as introducing new protagonist Javier, a man struggling to keep his own family together.
Kevin Boyle, executive producer on the series, said:
“When we began this series, we explored what it meant to protect a character like Clementine at all costs. 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 third series season is set nearly four years after the outbreak events of Season One said Kevin Bruner, 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.”
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier will be released in November on consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile. As with other recent Telltale releases – including Batman and Minecraft: Story Mode – the series will also be available for purchase on a Season Pass Disc. This will include the first episode of the third season, as well as providing access to all subsequent episodes as they are released.
Again, we find that distribution method a touch baffling but assume there must be some benefit for Telltale in having retail product aimed at casual consumers who are attracted by popular IP.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
