New details and images emerge for Telltale’s The Walking Dead season 3 at Comic-Con 2016
San Diego Comic-Con is upon us once again, and if you are anything like us, one thing in particular you are waiting for is news regarding the third season of Telltale’s award winning series – The Walking Dead. Well, wait no longer, we have you covered. Trying their best to avoid any spoilers, Melissa Hutchison (Clementine) and Creative Director Dennis Lenart from Telltale took to the stage to offer a few screenshots for us to feast our eyes upon, and a handful of small titbits to whet our appetites for season three; oh, and not forgetting a brand new poster for the upcoming instalment of the series.
Before we get onto the poster, let’s have a look at the screenshots, shall we?
First up we have an image of one of Telltale’s most endearing characters, Clemetine, who by the way appears to be missing a finger. With her is an infant one can only assume is little AJ – the son of the late Rebecca from the game’s second season. In stark contrast to her role in the first season, Clem has seemingly gone on to become a guardian herself.
The next image we have shows Clementine and the newcomer Javier as they make there way through a grungy, Walker-infested building. Look at the face of determination on Clementine’s face, while Javier looks rather uneasy. Note that Clementine is in possession of all of her fingers at this point in the game (unless this shot is flipped, of course). A person can only imagine what horrors will befall these poor souls.
I can’t help but wonder which character in this shot will be the one that we will be controlling. As we know, both Clem and Javier are playable characters in this game, so at the moment it’s anyone’s guess really.
I would assume that at this moment we are controlling Javier as Clementine is nowhere to be seen. In relation to the players, Javier is rather an interesting inclusion, meaning that we are now meeting, and deciding the actions of a person that we have never seen before, nor has any previous relationship to Clementine. For now, all we really know about Javier is that he is a man struggling to keep his family safe and together during these end of days.
Finally, before we go let’s take a quick glance at this poster I mentioned. Just look at it, guys. Damn, how badass does Clementine look? Clem, Javier and their band of survivors marching through the wastelands of the dead. The undead horde, cannibalistic farmers, and kill-happy crazies better tread carefully if they cross paths with these folk.
The first episode of Telltale’s: The Walking Dead Season Three will be released Fall 2016.
