Last year Telltale Games almost single-handedly redefined the quality of narratives in video games with its universally acclaimed Walking Dead series, and today the studio announced what we can expect during its highly anticipated second season. There’s not much to go on at the moment, but one thing’s for sure–we’ll now be seeing the story through the eyes of Clementine, the little girl protagonist Lee Everett sought to protect in Season 1.
The teaser trailer doesn’t reveal much, and indeed, much of it shows assets from the first season.We catch only glimpses of what Clementine will face as she ventures out into the world on her own, and as you can probably expect, much of it has to do with fighting off zombies with button prompts.
We don’t even know when we’ll get to see the new episode, aside from the ever-so-vague “later this year” and the news that Telltale should finish all installments sometime in 2014. But if you want to get a head start, Telltale tells us (ha) that you can save 10 percent off the price of the Mac version with a season pass pre-order, which will let you buy all five episodes for a total of $22.49 either through Telltale’s own online store or through Steam.
But that’s not all. Telltale also related that the Game of the Year edition for the first season should be on the way soon, which will bundle the core five episodes plus the 400 Days expansion into one package, along with a behind-the-scenes video and the game’s wonderful soundtrack. Oddly, neither an iOS or Mac version was listed for this release.
