After years of begging and whining, Telltale finally appears to be stepping things up on the episodic games front. The last series of The Walking Dead was little more than a wet fart, but The Final Season promises to bring an end to Clementine’s story – and it’s looking like a real stride forward in virtually every department.
While it maintains its iconic comic book art style, the presentation is vastly improved across the board, with facial animations being a particular highlight. The gameplay will also apparently be sharper, with new combat and exploration elements added. We’re just crossing our fingers for some higher stakes in the story department, because the previous five episodes were a non-event.
