Telltale Games‘ and Skybound Entertainment‘s The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier is coming to an end sooner than we’ve hoped. In approximately 168 hours, the creators will unveil the fate of protagonist Javier and fan-favorite Clementine. The best and worst part is knowing that their fate depends on you, the player. Telltale may have initially put us in sticky situations, occasionally causing us to rage-pause. But we decide whether to go with choice A or choice B. Should I make my choice based on sentiment or logic? Should I compromise survival-driven decisions? Is it acceptable to decide based on emotional attachment to some fictional characters more than others? Is it even fair or healthy to have a game be this stressful? Same old Telltale dilemmas, different riveting story-telling experience.
Telltale released a rather intense video where the developers go over some of the season’s highlights. If you still haven’t played all four episodes of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier, then be warned. The video may contain major spoilers – excuse the thumbnail. If you plan on playing it but want a spoiler-free sneak peek, you can get your introduction here. Otherwise, feel free to check out what the development team has to say below:
The fifth and final episode of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier, titled ‘From the Gallows’, comes out May 30th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android devices. Until then, I shall cross my fingers and keep praying that the finale does not force us to choose between offing one of the two most strongly-developed characters in the series.
