It is literally the end of a phenomenal series. Telltale released the trailer for The Walking Dead: The Final Season today, and boy is it an emotional one. The video game series is based upon Rober Kirkman’s highly successful award-winning comic books.
The gut-wrenching end begins with Episode One: Done Running, which launches the finale of our girl Clementine’s perilous journey. It will premier on August 14 on PC and consoles.
According to the official press release, Done Running “will introduce new visuals, mechanics, and characters to the series.” It sounds like they are really putting a ton of effort into giving the series the proper farewell it deserves, and I’m sure fans cannot wait.

Clementine, now a fierce and capable survivor, has reached the final chapter in her journey. After years on the road facing threats both living and dead, a secluded school might finally be her chance for a home. But protecting it will mean sacrifice. Clem must build a life and become a leader while still watching over AJ, an orphaned boy and the closest thing to family she has left.
