At the San-Diego Comic Con this week, Telltale joined Skybound Entertainment on stage to discuss Season 3 of The Walking Dead. Creative Director Dennis Lenart was joined on stage by Melissa Hutchison (the voice of Clementine) to give the new details to eager fans.
This season will feature two playable characters; Clementine and Javier, however the press release adds ” you may not be playing each character within the same frame of time…”. Javier is a new survivor who has never previously appeared in the series before. Javier joins the series in a time of turmoil for himself and his family, as he struggles to keep them together in the zombie apocalypse.
What’s interesting about this season though is that although it is season 3, new players will actually be able to join the series from this entry. While season three will carry on from the story of one and two, new players will also be introduced to AJ. AJ, who is the son of Rebecca from season two, will allow new players to learn about Clementine’s past while also serving to help further the story for existing players of the series.
It will be interesting to see how many new players join the series at this point. The Walking Dead is a game I always meant to play but never quite got around to. Are you enjoying The Walking Dead from Telltale? Or like me are you now thinking about joining the series? Let us know in the comments.
