Telltale Games has officially revealed The Walking Dead: Season Two, which is now available for pre-order on PC/Mac via the Telltale Games Online Store as well as Steam. The second season will make its highly-anticipated premiere later this year on PC/Mac, home consoles and iOS, with additional platforms to be announced. So while I’m super excited about the second season of The Walking Dead, I am concerned that we’ll be taking on the role of Clementine this season. Not that I don’t think Telltale Games can create a compelling storyline because I think they can, I just think that the premise limits creativity. Telltale has never been afraid to push the boundaries, but I have a feeling that they’ll put Clementine in some positions that may make some of us really uncomfortable. In fact, I’m almost sure of it. It’s the nature of the franchise, to push us mentally and emotionally, I just don’t know how people will respond to those challenges while playing from the perspective of a little girl. Think of all the most difficult moments of the first season that you had to handle as Lee, remember how hard they were, now imagine doing all those things from the perspective of Clementine. Yep, it’s a lot different.
The Walking Dead: Season Two – A Telltale Games Series will continue the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned at the outset of the undead apocalypse, now left to her own devices to seek safety and survive in a world gone mad. Now assuming the role of an ordinary child, players will struggle to outwit both the dead and the living in situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions.
Expected to premiere later this year, The Walking Dead: Season Two will consist of five episodes that will be released for digital download over the course of the season and will conclude in 2014. Players can save 10% off of the purchase price of the PC/Mac versions with a pre-order of the season pass, giving them access to all five episodes for the total cost of $22.49 USD or equivalent when ordering through the Telltale Online Store, or through the Steam digital distribution service.
Additionally, this November, Telltale Games will release The Walking Dead Game of the Year Edition to retailers across North America for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The Game of the Year Edition will include all five episodes of the award-winning series, plus the critically-acclaimed episode ‘400 Days,’ as well as access to the series’ original score and exclusive behind-the-scenes video. Currently available for pre-order at retailers everywhere, the Game of the Year Edition will be available for $29.99 USD or equivalent.
