Telltale Games’ “The Walking Dead: A New Frontier” is not slated for release until this November, but as early as today players can now reserve “The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series — A New Frontier” Season Pass Disc on Amazon.
Game Idealist reports Amazon is now accepting preorders for “The Walking Dead” Season 3 video game while awaiting its physical release on Nov. 15.
“The Walking Dead: A New Frontier” is said to focus on Javier and returning protagonist Clementine. The Season Pass Disc will provice access to the first episode of the installment as well as the future episodes of the game. While the first episode will come with the Season Pass Disc, the other four episodes will be available for download on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Store as they become available.
According to the official product description on Amazon, “The Walking Dead: Season 3” players will view the game’s storyline via Javier’s eyes. Javier is the protagonist focused on finding his family amid the zombie apocalypse. Interestingly, gamers will also know Clementine’s past through playable flashbacks. This explains why players can play as both Javier and Clementine in some parts of the game.
Speaking of the upcoming game in early September, Telltale Games Co-Founder and CEO Kevin Bruner said, “This third new season will serve as both a continuation of what’s come before in our story, as well as an all-new beginning set nearly four years after the outbreak events of Season One.”
Bruner also revealed at the time that “A New Frontier” explores the true meaning of survival amid the world that’s currently being dominated by the undead. He also teased that there would be new rules of order and justice that the protagonists would have to confront in reclaiming the world that was once theirs.
Back in August, the franchise’s head of creative communications Job Stauffer told IBTimes UK at Gamescom 2016 that very familiar characters are set to appear in the video game.
“We will be seeing some characters from the comics, more highly integrated with this third season,” Stauffer said of the game that’s based on Robert Kirkman’s ground-breaking comic book series.
“The Waking Dead: The Telltale Series — A New Frontier” is available for preorder for the PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles for $29.99. Amazon lists the official release date of the game to be on Nov. 15. To reserve a copy, click here.
