The end is finally here. “Done Running”, the first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, released on Steam today. Doubtless it’ll be an emotional return to the franchise, and the first of the last ever four-part episodic series by Telltale.
You can pick up the full season for $19.99 USD. Episode one will be downloaded immediately upon purchase, and all upcoming episodes will become available as they are released.
The new seasons plot is described in the press release :
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. In this gripping, emotional final season, you will define your relationships, fight the undead, and determine how Clementine’s story ends.
Telltale has also given this season several upgrades including:
- Emotional, Gut-Wrenching Story – See Clementine’s journey through to the end. As she builds a new life, you will have to grapple with new types of choices and live with the consequences as AJ looks on, learning from your every move.
- More Control, More Tension – A new over-the-shoulder camera system, greater freedom to explore detailed environments, and scenes with unscripted combat capture the fear of living in a world overrun by the undead and create the most engaging The Walking Dead game yet.
- Striking New Visual Style – The all-new Graphic Black art style rips the ink from the pages of the Eisner Award-winning comic book series and brings the world of The Walking Dead to life like never before. Supports 4K resolution and high dynamic range on compatible devices.
The Walking Dead: The Final Season is NOW AVAILABLE on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
