It’s been a painful few months for fans of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead. Back in September we reported that Telltale Games were to close, and that ultimately left the future of The Walking Dead in serious doubt with only two episodes remaining.
Thankfully, Skybound Games, the company owned by The Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman, stepped in to make sure that Clementine’s story would be finished and that members of the Telltale team would be on board to do it right. Since then fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Episode 3 or for any details to be released. Back in December, Skybound Games announced that Episode 3 will become available on January 15th, and now they’ve given us a trailer to whet our appetite:
The trailer for Episode 3, which will be titled “Broken Toys”, shows an adolescent and hardened Clementine both torturing a foe for information and covering herself in blood to walk amongst the dead unnoticed in true The Walking Dead fashion. The end of the trailer also shows some form of flashback to a younger Clementine riding on a train cart alongside Lee, the main protagonist from way back in The Walking Dead: Season One. It’s unclear how this flashback will be tied into the wrapping up of the story, but I’m delighted that fans will get the chance to find out.
When Skybound announced the release date of January 15th they also announced that the remaining episodes of The Walking Dead on PC would be available exclusively through the Epic Game Store. No need to shout expletives at your monitor just yet, though – if you bought the entire season up front through the likes of Steam then future episodes will still be available to you through that platform. Console players will be unaffected.
The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 3 will release on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch on January 15th.
