Telltale Games have blown the lid off The Walking Dead: Season 2, which will debut later this year and conclude in 2014. Interestingly, players will assume the role of Clementine this time around, experiencing the bleak world from a child's perspective. You could argue that there are potential Season One spoilers below, perhaps pedantically.
Set "many months" after the events of the first season, The Walking Dead: Season Two will continue the story of Clementine, who's now left to her own devices to seek safety and survive in a world gone mad. "Now assuming the role of an ordinary child, players will struggle to outwit both the dead and the living in situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions."
"The terrifying nature of Robert Kirkman's world has allowed Telltale to push the boundaries of interactive drama in video games to a place that has had fans anxious to know what will happen next in this series," said Dan Connors, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "Today we can finally lift the veil, albeit only a little, on how this story will continue, and we'll soon be putting players in the shoes of a lead role that will challenge their expectations of how to survive in a world where no one can be trusted."
Once again, The Walking Dead: Season Two will deploy in five downloadable episodes, the first of which is slated to release before year's end on PC, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox 360 and iOS. With The Wolf Among Us also off to a flying start, we won't be short of powerful performances and tough decisions over the coming months.
