The Walking Dead Season 2 game will allow players to be Clementine
The Walking Dead television show might be a hot topic right now, but let’s talk about something even better: the game by Telltale Games. Easily one of the best video games of all time (if you’ve played it, I’m sure you’ll agree), the first title not only had you, as the player, making some rather difficult choices, but then made you experience the consequences of those choices, all the while tugging on your heartstrings as you become responsible for a little girl named Clementine.
In season 2 of the game, which is expected for release sometime later this year, though, you’ll actually have a chance to be Clementine, taking on her role during gameplay. The game will pick up where the last game left off, but I’m not going to tell you what that is in case you haven’t played the first one yet (if you haven’t, what are you waiting for? It’s on sale at Steam right now). As Clementine, you will need to navigate an apocalyptic zombie-ridden world as you are forced, once more, to make moral choices that will determine the story’s outcome.
All five episodes of the new game will be released through 2014 on PC/Mac, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and iOS, although Telltale is expecting to add a few more platforms to the mix (I’m thinking Xbox One and PS4, for example). The season pass for all episodes is now available for pre-order on Steam for just $22.49.
