Telltale has revealed more details on The Walking Dead Season 3 this week, during San Diego Comic Con.
While attempting to avoid spoilers, the game’s Creative Director Dennis Lenart and Melissa Hutchison (voice of Clementine) shared details about the playable characters. A screenshot shows an older Clementine alongside a new character, Javier, as they make their way through a walker-infested slaughterhouse.
Players will control both Javier and Clementine, “although you may not be playing each character within the same frame of time,” Telltale said.
Season 3 intends to continue the events from prior season but will also serve “…as a new entry point for fans who’ve yet to be caught up to speed.” This will be conveyed as Clementine is looking after infant survivor AJ, the son of Rebecca from season 2.
“So players who are new to the series will have a chance to learn more about Clementine’s backstory, while at the same time, those who have played previous seasons will have a story that’s uniquely tailored to the diverging paths they’ve taken in the past.”
A new poster was also revealed showing Clementine walking with Javier. Telltale said they’ll be sharing information on how to obtain this limited-edition poster later this summer.
The Walking Dead Season 3 is planned to release later this year.
