Walking Dead's Third Season Coming Before Christmas

Telltale has been fairly tight-lipped about the third season of its acclaimed series based on The Walking Dead. Fortunately for fans of the series, we won't have much longer to wait before we can finally get our hands on it. The studio has announced the release date, which is a few days before Christmas.

The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier will be available to download December 20 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, iOS, and Android. If your tastes lean more toward physical releases, a season-pass disc is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 7.

Players will experience the world of the undead four years after the initial outbreak as Javier, a young man who, like just about everyone else in the series, has lost his family. During his travels, he meets up with Clementine, who has emerged as the linchpin of Telltale's telling.

Telltale is showing off the game on stage during The Game Awards on Thursday, December 1, which start at 5:30 p.m. Pacific.


Our Take
Telltale's done a great job with this series in particular, and I'm optimistic that it will keep the streak going with the third season. Hopefully, the time between releases has given the studio time to craft another engaging story – and emboldened them to put in a puzzle or two, also.
