Telltale Games has issued a release date for the final episode of the third season of The Walking Dead, A New Frontier.
The fifth episode five of the season, titled ‘From the Gallows’ will release on May 30, 2017, for mobile, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The information surfaced via a blogpost from Telltale, in which the team informed fans of the release and described some of what to expect. Telltale also stated how instrumental the episode will be to the player’s previous decisions as relationships and choices made throughout the remainder of the season will bear the most significance in the finale.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier began with a two-part premiere back in December 2016. The release was a large step for Telltale Games, as the team has been using an improved engine since the inception of Batman: The Telltale Series. A New Frontier is the first time the studio has used the engine for The Walking Dead, which offers a softer, more realistic design to the game’s visuals, allowing players to immerse themselves more deeply into the narrative without losing the now-iconic comic book feeling players have come to love over the years.
Telltale Games did not release any information outside of a release date, but promised fans a gameplay trailer later this week. The team also promised to release a video with some input from the game’s creative leads. Fans of the series, therefore, can look forward to more The Walking Dead previews to sate their appetites on May 25, 2017.
Telltale Games has also been working on the latest entry into their narrative-driven adventure series Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy – The Telltale Series. The first episode in the series released on April 18, 2017. No official word on the second episode’s release has been given.
