Fans of Telltale Games’ episodic adventure titles have been waiting patiently for the promised third “season” of their series based on The Walking Dead comics. Today, the developer announced that “The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier” (yes, that is a long title) will launch its first episode on Tuesday, December 20 on Android and other platforms.
Previously, Telltale indicated that the season would begin sometime in November, but the developer has now pushed back the launch of the first episode by a few weeks. The game is still set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s zombie comic book series (not the AMC TV show), and both the teaser art and plot description for A New Frontier indicate that we will once once again see Clementine, who looks like she will be a bit older than her appearances in the first two Telltale seasons.

The brief plot description shows that the player will actually be assuming the role of a new character, Javier. He’s described as “a young man determined to find the family taken from him” who encounters Clementine in his travels. Oh, and we would expect to see lots of zombies that will be trying to eat both of them as well. Telltale plans to show an extended gameplay clip from the first episode of A New Frontier on December 1 as part of the livestream of The Game Awards.
Telltale is currently in the middle of its episodic Batman game series, and it plans to launch another series based on the Marvel Comics universe sometime in 2017.
