Telltale’s The Walking Dead returns this fall for its third season, and the studio is designing it to work just as well if you’re new to the series as if you’ve played everything to this point, the company said during a Comic-Con International panel today.
Now known as The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series, the game picks up with our hero, Clementine, in her early teens — and missing half of her left ring finger. She is one of two playable characters, along with a new survivor named Javier. Telltale noted in a press release that "you may not be playing each character within the same frame of time."
Just like Clementine was Lee Everett’s ward in the first season of the game, she is now protecting a young boy named A.J. People who have played Season Two will recognize A.J. as the son of Rebecca and either Alvin or Carver. Javier, however, is new to the series, so players will have a chance to determine what kind of person he is.
You can see Clementine, Javier and A.J. in the screenshots below. Javier and Clementine are also featured in the Season Three poster below, which Telltale says may be available in a limited-edition printing this summer.
