During their panel at PAX West this weekend, Telltale Games took to the stage to deliver some new information regarding the third season of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series.
First up, we’ve finally been given the name of this season – which is aptly titled “A New Frontier” as it looks to introduce players to a new story, and in turn introduce new players to the game.
Additionally, it’s been revealed that players will be able to take control of a new character called Javier in A New Frontier – the struggling family man offering a different perspective on the matter (much like Lee did in Season One).
Kevin Boyle, Executive Producer of the The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series, had this to say about the introduction of Javier (and his ties to Clementine);
“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.”
Are you excited to revisit Clem, and get acquainted with the newly introduced Javier?
Well, the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Three – A New Frontier is due out sometime this November; though with the luck we’ve had getting things day-and-date lately, I wouldn’t hold your breath that we’re included in that.
