The new player to Telltale’s Walking Dead franchise is Javier. The person introduced beside Clementine in the announcement trailer for season 3’s A New Frontier. Not much was known about the stranger other than he was fighting for his family. Today we get to see exactly what that means and what befell his family. Telltale released a video that shows how his kindred was introduced to the zombie/walker plague and let’s just say it’s an emotional doozy. We wouldn’t expect any less from this developer. You can view it above.
Also, it was announced that the first two out of five episodes for A New Frontier will be released on December 20th. The first entry was expected on that date but its followup will join it. Telltale also teased a way for save files to be imported so gamers’ choices from the first two seasons will carry over. No additional details were revealed about this feature. Those new to the series will be able to select previous, important choices before they play Episode 1.
“When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? Years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to protect his family, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.”
