Telltale Games held a panel at PAX West last night where the next season of The Walking Dead was given its final and full title. The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier won't exactly roll off your tongue effortlessly, but perhaps it's a good idea not the just call them Season Two, Three, Four, Five, etc.
"This third new season will serve as both a continuation of what's come before in our story, as well as an all-new beginning set nearly four years after the outbreak events of Season One," said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and 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."
This season players will control both Clementine and newcomer Javier. Exactly how they will relate to eachother remains to be seen, but Javier is struggling with something a lot of Walking Dead characters have faced, namely keeping your family together admidst the zombie apocalypse.
"When we began this series, we explored what it meant to protect a character like Clementine at all costs," said Kevin Boyle, Executive Producer on the series. "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."
