Get ready to feel all the feels, Clementine will take over as main protagonist in Season Two of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead. The game will take place several months after the events of Season One and the trailer that Telltale unveiled shows a more resolute version of Clementine. The game will launch “later this year” for Windows, Mac, consoles and iOS and is currently available for pre-order on Steam. Additional platforms will be revealed later and I expect to see launches on next generation consoles, the PS Vita and Android.
I’m curious to see where Telltale takes their adaptation of The Walking Dead, especially with Clementine as the new lead. She was already the primary focal point in Season One but Lee Everett allowed players to have a bit more freedom in his actions as a man who is tasked with shouldering very life impacting decisions. It will be interesting to see if Telltale even considers putting Clementine in a position like Lee was when he had to make a decision regarding Duck. Telltale’s experience with narrative should certainly be a big play in this new season and I’m excited to see where it goes from here.
