We wrote this past Sunday that Telltale Games would tease information about The Walking Dead Season 2 today. The interactive storytelling games company kept their word, as they have officially announced that the episodic adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s comic book series will begin its release with Episode 1 later this year on the PC, Xbox 360, iOS and on PlayStation 3/Vita. It costs $25 for the entire 5-episode season, or $22.49 if you pre-order. There is no confirmation of a next-gen version at this time.
It is a short video, but the little glimpse we see is that Clementine is older and still on the run from walkers. You will get to play as her in Season 2, and depending on your choices in Season 1 we hope for very different results of how Clementine dresses or approaches the growing zombie problem. Here is the trailer:
The first season of The Walking Dead was praised heavily by critics to the extent of winning Metacritic’s Game of the Year award (based on an aggregate of review scores), albeit in a seemingly down year for gaming. Their acclaim has given the studio opportunities to create what they want and to be received by a much larger audience, and with that opportunity they have begun to release a prequel video game of The Wolf Among Us, with Episode 1 released earlier this month. It appears as though they will develop content for both series concurrently.
Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead Season 2 begins later this year. Make sure to follow us on Twitter to keep up to date as we post more about The Walking Dead and other video game news!
