The Walking Dead Releases Final Season’s First 15 Minutes of Gameplay
TellTale Games gave fans their first real look at the final season of The Walking Dead during the studio’s San Diego Comic-Con Panel, showing off the season’s first 15 minutes. In the closing four episodes, Clementine will be aiming to retrofit an abandoned school into a new home – through any fans of The Walking Dead will harbor ill memories of prior settling attempts. After years of spilling blood and guts in a nomadic lifestyle, it seems like Clementine’s adventure will either end in two ways: the group will either finally have a home and a future to look forward to, or The Walking Dead will stay true to its name.
Fans who want to jump into the fourth and final four episodes of the game may want to skip this preview, but others interesting in taking a glimpse at TellTale Games’ final craftmanship for this IP can take a gander below. The first 15 minutes of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is devoid of any major spoilers, but does show both Clementine and AJ in harrowing situations.
Gamers can take a look at the beginning of Clementine’s ending below:
The first season made its debut over 6 years ago, meaning gamers have had ample time to watch Clementine grow as a character. The character was aged about 8 at the time of the first season and has now spent years in a mostly traumatic, nomadic lifestyle. Some 7-8 years of in-game time later, she’s killed over 25 people and countless walkers. Much like Carl Grimes from the television show, Clementine has gone from a fairly dependent character to one capable of making the hard choices. Though true to The Walking Dead fashion, the final season is likely to push these boundaries even more.
Clem must build a life and become a leader while still watching over AJ, an orphaned boy and the closest thing to family she has left. In this gripping, emotional final season, you will define your relationships, fight the undead, and determine how Clementine’s story ends.
Gamers who pre-order the final season (which currently costs $19.99) will get access to all four episodes as they become available. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One pre-orders will also come with The Walking Dead: The TellTale Series Collection, an option that is also available to Windows 10 pre-orders placed through the Microsoft Store.
PC gamers who order from other digital storefronts will earn an additional 10% off the game’s retail price.
