'The Walking Dead' Game Season 2 Release Date: New Trailer, Teaser Image [WATCH] Returns to PC, PS3, Xbox 360 November 2013, iPhone Coming Later Possibly With PS4, Xbox One
After months of waiting, Telltale's "The Walking Dead: Season 2" game is almost here, along with a new trailer and screenshots.
The first episode of "The Walking Dead: Season 2" will come to PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Mac in November, with an iOS release later this year. The season will run then through 2014. There is also a chance for a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release date sometime after.
Season 2 will pick up some time after Season 1 and continue the story of Clementine, the little girl players tried to protect throughout the first five episodes of the game as Lee. According to IGN, this time gamers will actually get the chance to play as Clementine as she tries to survive in a world filled with walkers.
The reveal trailer for "The Walking Dead: Season 2" shows familiar locations from the first season overrun with zombies before coming back to a slightly older Clementine. None of the other characters from Season 1 appear in the trailer or the screenshots Telltale Games posted to Twitter.
One screenshot for the game shows a mysterious new older man, but the others all focus on Clementine as she sits by a fire, escapes from a zombie, or talks with other mysterious characters.
Decisions players made in the first season of "The Walking Dead" should carry into the second season, though Telltale won't say how just yet. Presumably any surviving characters from the first five episodes and the "400 Days" downloadable content will make some sort of appearance in the next season.
Impatient PC and Mac gamers can pre-order the entire season of "The Walking Dead" on Steam now. Console and iOS gamers will have to wait for the release of the first episode sometime in the next few months, however.
Assuming the new season follows the same structure of other Telltale games like the recent "The Wolf Among Us," each episode will be several hours long. Gamers will then have to wait a few weeks for each subsequent episode.
