Take Us Back
The grand finale of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is right around the corner. Episode 4 releases on 26th March, and to mark the occasion, a new trailer has been released, showing off the cast of characters as they struggle against an encroaching horde of zombies. It's all set to a sombre lullaby, of course. It'll be interesting to...
Not dead yet
There was a rumour going around earlier in the week that Overkill's The Walking Dead had been cancelled on consoles. The shooter released on PC at the back end of last year, but it was largely hammered by both players and critics. Because of this, it was delayed indefinitely on PS4. However, publisher 505 Games says that it's still...
Fans receive refunds
Overkill's The Walking Dead was panned by many when it launched on PC late last year, and then, following the criticism, the console version received an indefinite delay in January. We've heard nothing of the shooter since, but this latest bit of speculation suggests that things aren't going well. A Reddit user sparked things...
Physical edition slumping into stores
Considering there was a time when Clementine’s story wasn’t going to be concluded at all, it’s good to know that The Walking Dead: The Final Season will wrap up on 26th March, with the release of Episode 4: Take Us Back. Publisher Skybound Games – who picked up the project from the now-defunct Telltale...
Release date spotted in-game
The third episode of The Walking Dead's turbulent last season has finally arrived. This chapter, produced by Skybound Games after the sudden breakdown of Telltale Games, took some time to launch, with nearly a four month wait since Episode 2 released. Still, it's good that the game is back on track. What's more, it...
Telltale’s collapse was dramatic, fast, and put the final episodes of Clementine’s story in peril. Amazingly, though, The Walking Dead: The Final Season’s third episode, Broken Toys, will debut on 15th January – courtesy of Skybound Games. The fact that this is launching at all is a miracle, so count your blessings if you wanted...
The final season of The Walking Dead has been in trouble since the dramatic shutdown of Telltale Games earlier in the year. Fortunately, the rest of the episodes will be released, as many of the original developers have joined forces with Skybound Ga
Night of the living dead
Work has resumed on The Walking Dead: The Final Season, almost two months after Telltale Games closed down. Skybound Entertainment said that it has “been a ton of work logistically and legally to get us to a place where we're able to roll up our sleeves and get to the actual work” but that production of the fi
Original development team hopefully to be kept in tact
After rumours surfaced earlier in the week of the possibility of a new company stepping in and finishing up work on Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season, it has now been confirmed by Robert Kirkman, co-creator of The Walking Dead, that his team at Skybound Games will finish the project...
Episode 3 almost complete
The Telltale Games fiasco continues as Kotaku has learned of plans for the remaining two episodes of The Walking Dead: The Final Season. According to a couple of anonymous sources who claim to have insider knowledge on Telltale's current negotiations, the developer is reportedly planning to find a new company to hire back...
Episodes 3 and 4 could still happen
The second episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season launches tomorrow on PlayStation 4, but following news of Telltale Games' demise, the season's third and fourth episodes were effectively cancelled. It seemed as though fans would never get to see how the long running series ends, but in a rather miraculous...
"A lot of hearts were broken, including mine"
Over the weekend, news broke out that Telltale Games, the studio famous for narrative adventure games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, was laying off almost its entire staff, effectively shutting down. This has left hundreds of people out of work, and all future projects have been cancelled...
No more episodes
Earlier this evening, news broke that Telltale Games has laid off 285 employees, effectively closing the developer down. However, initial reports suggested that a "skeleton crew" was being kept on to finish up the final season of The Walking Dead, but now new reports are saying that isn't actually the case. Sources have told
Suffer the children
We're just a week away from The Walking Dead: The Final Season - Episode 2, entitled 'Suffer the Children'. To build up some excitement, Telltale has released a new trailer for the next chapter in Clementine's story, and it's looking like tension will be running high. We were fairly impressed with the first episode, which...
"Season pass disc"
Considering that every single season has been released in disc form, it would've been a bit weird if the final season didn't have a physical copy to own. However, a post by the publisher's Twitter account confirmed the imminent release of the "season pass disc" of Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season. The...
Wrapped up by Xmas
Man, Telltale really is changing. The Walking Dead: The Final Season’s engine is vastly improved, and now it’s outlined the full release schedule for the entire series. The exciting news is that all four of its episodes will deploy this year, meaning that you’re not going to have to wait long at all between instalments. The...
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...
Back to school
Pre-orders for The Walking Dead: The Final Season are now live on the PlayStation Store, and the purchase page has revealed a few more interesting tidbits about Clementine's final episodic adventure. Most importantly, the last season will be four episodes long, making it the shortest entry yet with one less chapter than its...
Here we are then: the beginning of the end for Clementine and Telltale’s take on The Walking Dead. The developer has attached a 14th August release date to the latest season of the fan favourite franchise, with pre-orders scheduled to open on 8th June. Purchase on the PlayStation Store, and you’ll get free access to The Walking Dead:...
One more Clementine
The Walking Dead: The Final Season will conclude Clementine’s story once and for all, and Telltale has released the first artwork from the episodic adventure. The image will particularly delight fans of the franchise, as it shows the story come full circle. In case you forgot it, here’s the artwork from the very first...
Final season ends story once and for all
Spoilers: she’s going to die. Telltale’s announced The Walking Dead: The Final Season, which will cast Clementine back in the lead role, and end its adaptation of the comic book series seemingly for good. The title – which is in production now – will pick up after the events of The New Frontier, which...
Off with its head
The problem with episodic games is that you have to finish strong, otherwise you risk spoiling months of build-up and leaving a sour taste. Unfortunately, the finale to The Walking Dead’s third season is a big disappointment, and it’ll leave you pondering exactly what the point of this story was in the first place. With the...
Batsman out of Hell
You'd be right to assume that the title of Episode 4 in Telltale's latest The Walking Dead story A New Frontier is a reference to disgraced baseball star Javier Garcia's biggest decision: family or friends? Thicker Than Water explores whether the everyman would be better off siding with his brood or buddies, and it prompts plenty...
New episode out 25th April
The fourth episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will prove that blood is thicker than water from 25th April on the PlayStation 4. Considering the previous episode dropped a matter of weeks ago, this is a much quicker turnaround, which is welcome given that Above the Law felt like it stopped halfway through. There's...
For as quickly as characters come and go in The Walking Dead titles, you've got to give Telltale Games credit for continuing to pull together a compelling cast. Ex-baseball star Javier Garcia's only been around for three instalments, but already he feels like part of the fettered furniture: his complex family dynamic once again the...
Alright, the "twist" at the end of this episode is about as subtle as a meat cleaver to a Muertos' face, but The Walking Dead: A New Frontier is really moving at a breakneck pace. Having established a new cast of characters in the first half of this two-part premiere, Ties That Bind (Part Two) ratchets up the tension by plotting the fall...
The first season of Telltale Games' comic book adaptation The Walking Dead propelled the episodic developer to superstardom; Lee's poignant tale of life after the apocalypse was lavished with end-of-year awards, and is looked upon fondly some four or so years after its original release – despite a laundry list of mechanical and...
He's a zombie, y'see
Telltale's engine is looking as creaky as ever, but that's not going to stop it from spinning some more yarns from the apocalypse. This extended look at The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (perhaps better known as Season 3) introduces a new cast of characters and one slightly older but still familiar face, ahead of the series...
A family affair
Ooh, here's something to look forward to: The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will premiere on 20th December, with a gameplay reveal due at Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards next week. The third season in the exceedingly popular property is leading with a David Cage-esque marketing slogan: how far will you go to protect your family?...
Scheduled to release in November
The third season of The Walking Dead was formally announced at E3 earlier this year, but we've heard nothing of the game since then. However, during Telltale's panel at PAX West earlier today, the developer revealed that the third season will be titled "A New Frontier", and shared some details on what to expect in...
Clem the killer
This author often feels like the only person on the planet that preferred The Walking Dead: Season 2 to its award-winning predecessor, but your humble host thought that the development of Clem's character was really great. The Walking Dead: Season 3 promises to be something special, then, with the once optimistic tween now turning...
Dead or alive
We'd almost forgotten that The Walking Dead games can literally be boiled down to a spate of trying decisions, but the launch trailer for upcoming mini-series Michonne hammers that point home, showing the titular hero stressed up to the eyeballs as she tries to survive in a harsh post-apocalyptic world. We'd rather feed our brains to...
Those of you hoping to swell the size of your Trophy cabinet with another easy Telltale Platinum may be disappointed to learn that mini-series The Walking Dead: Michonne will ship without a silvery-blue pot. As with previous entries in the series, you'll earn trinkets for working your way through the story, but the three episode runtime was...
The Walking Dead returns next week, with Telltale's anticipated Michonne miniseries. This three episode short will tell the tale of one of Robert Kirkman's most popular protagonists, as the titular character comes to terms with the demons of her past. You can watch the first five minutes of her story below, but beware: spoilers...
Plus gory screenshots
Assuming that you're not sick and tired of Telltale Games' interactive story template, you'll be happy to hear that The Walking Dead: Michonne is set to launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 later this month. This new miniseries will consist of just three downloadable episodes. Following the story of the machete wielding...
Undead in February
Who's ready for some more The Walking Dead? Yeah, us too. Telltale Games' other announcement at The Game Awards 2015 pertained to its standalone episodic spin-off, The Walking Dead: Michonne. The triple bill will begin in February on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and will be canon to the comic series, spanning Issue #126...
Just when you thought Telltale Games couldn't get any more prolific, it announces an entirely new game. Speaking on Geoff Keighley's youtube coverage of E3, the company revealed that it will be bringing a three episode series titled The Walking Dead: Michonne to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 later this year. Series creator...
Despite its grisly premise, zombie franchise The Walking Dead has been the flavour of the month for many, many months now. That's a figure of speech, of course; we're hoping that no one has taken any actual culinary tips from the show's shuffling stars. At any rate, the undead hit has seen all manner of video game adaptations –...
Dead good news
The Walking Dead: Season Three is in development – but it's not due out for some time. As such, it sounds like developer Telltale Games has got something a little extra in mind, which will hopefully tide you over until the new episodes arrive. " is not necessarily something that you can expect to see super, super soon," said PR...
Once bitten, twice shy
The first season of Telltale Games’ story heavy zombie game, The Walking Dead, spooked the PlayStation 4 earlier this month, and we liked it very much – even if it didn't run that much smoother than its PlayStation 3 predecessor. Fortunately, The Walking Dead: Season Two is a far superior port. On previous generation...
The walking delay
You may recall that a few weeks ago Telltale Games' popular The Walking Dead series was finally confirmed to be releasing on the PlayStation 4 after a seemingly endless string of rumours. Well, erm, if you live in Europe, and were planning on spending your weekend playing your way through the title, we've got some bad news. The...
Long road ahead
Telltale Games had been around for quite some time before it deployed the first instalment in its episodic The Walking Dead tie-in way back in 2012. The Californian company had previously enjoyed varying levels of success with its Sam & Max series, but was still looking for a smash hit at the time. That changed when it introduced...
It's about Clemen-time
The Walking Dead has seemingly been shambling onto the PlayStation 4 for months now. However, after an almost endless run of rumours, developer Telltale Games has confirmed that the title will be launching for the super system on 24th October. To be clear, both seasons will be released separately, in digital and
The long and winding road
Back in July, when Telltale’s critically acclaimed The Wolf Among Us wrapped up its first season, The Walking Dead was only at its halfway point – but the developer has raced to Season Two’s finale since then. As those of you that are familiar with the series will already know, this second set of episodes puts you...
Still keeping that hair short
Regular readers will know that this editor has spent the past few months desperately trying to catch up on Telltale’s episodic adaptation of The Walking Dead. Well, your humble host recently finished Season Two, Episode Four, which means that he’s ready for the finale. And best of all, the misery will unfold from...
Who could live in a house like this?
We all know that Easter eggs aren't just designed to make us feel sick, but also to keep us entertained all year round by popping up in video games when we least expect them. It seems that developer Naughty Dog did more than just brush up on the graphics in The Last of Us Remastered, too, as one Twitter user...
Try to act surprised
The Walking Dead is a commercial juggernaut in both its television and video game guise, so it’s no real surprise that the latter is set to make a comeback for a third season. Telltale Games’ head honcho Kevin Bruner confirmed the tidbit alongside comic book creator Robert Kirkman at the San Diego Comic-Con earlier today...
The penultimate peril
The next to last episode of the second season of Telltale Games’ episodic The Walking Dead adaptation is an unsurprisingly gripping experience. Following in the footsteps of arguably the best instalment that Telltale Games has released to date, the fourth entry, Amid the Ruins, has an awful lot to live up to. And live up to...
It's about Clemen-time
You could never accuse Telltale Games of not working hard enough. The supremely talented developer, which recently announced Borderlands and Game of Thrones projects, is also bringing its two most popular zombie and werewolf themed franchises to the PlayStation 4. We were already aware of the ports, but new
Ramping up the emotion
Keeping curly haired baseball cap fan Clementine safe can be draining during Telltale Games’ take on the classic comic book series The Walking Dead, but proceedings look a little more laidback in Zen Pinball 2’s table based upon the award winning episodic game. Set during the series’ first season, this ambitious arena...
The Wolf Among Us also bringing next-gen problem solving
In an announcement that certainly won’t shock you like a shuffling corpse, Telltale Games has confirmed that The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us are coming to the PlayStation 4. You’ll be able to buy both seasons of the aforementioned undead adventure at retail later this year, while...
Deeper down the rabbit hole
When writing reviews, it’s always important to avoid spoilers, that way you don’t ruin the experience for future players. This is a particular conundrum that we face each time that Telltale Games releases new episodic content, as each instalment builds upon the last, making our lives a misery as we attempt to dance...
Like the stench of a rotting corpse, rumours regarding a PlayStation 4 port of Telltale Games’ award winning The Walking Dead series refuse to die down. Hot on the heels of a GameStop listing in North America, British retailer Amazon.co.uk has now added a product page for the next-gen re-release, which includes a 25
Telltale Games’ award-winning episodic escapade The Walking Dead appears to be extending its rotten legs to the PlayStation 4. North American mega retailer GameStop is currently taking pre-orders for the unannounced remaster – which includes all of Season One as well as the 400 Days expansion – ahead of a proposed 17th June launch...
Next time on The Walking Dead
After a three month break designed to let our minds digest the events of the first episode of Telltale’s second season of The Walking Dead, it’s time to step into the small shoes of Clementine once again. As is customary for the series, we last left the pint-sized heroine after making a difficult decision between...
When episodic outfit Telltale Games’ macabre The Walking Dead adaptation first shuffled its way onto the PlayStation Network way back in 2012, many people were apprehensive following a string of licensed tie-ins that didn’t quite hit the mark. Perhaps this is part of the reason why Lee and Clementine’s five episode first season proved...
