Telltale Games, the developer behind The Walking Dead video game series, has announced the release date for the next episode of the miniseries based on the Walking Dead character Michonne.
The second episode entitled ‘Give No Shelter’ will be released on March 29, 2016, and the miniseries will come to a close next month as the third episode entitled ‘What We Deserve’ is scheduled for April.
“In Episode 2, ‘Give No Shelter,’ a daring escape from the floating colony of Monroe sees Michonne, Pete, and Sam running for their lives,” Telltale explained. “An all too brief reprieve is soon shattered; the leaders of Monroe don’t forgive and don’t forget. With memories of her daughters bleeding ever further into Michonne’s blurred reality, her world is becoming increasingly fractured… just at the point when she’ll need all of her skills to survive.”
Editor Sean Timm gave the first episode ‘In Too Deep’ a 7/10 and said, “This untapped potential, especially when combined with what’s now Telltale’s signature clunky engine and load screens, keeps The Walking Dead: Michonne from nailing the ecstatic highs the likes of those seen in Tales from the Borderlands. That said, with strong initial character work, an interesting setting unlike what we’ve seen before, and plenty of conflicts set up for the next episode, “In Too Deep” is worth picking up. It’s a solid opening to what has the potential to be a refreshingly unique miniseries.”
The company also released a video showing off the choices that players made in the first episode. WARNING: it contains major spoilers of the plot.
