It’s been nearly three months since we’ve heard anything about Telltale’s third season of their The Walking Dead game, subtitled A New Frontier. In fact, I believe it was supposed to be out this month, but alas that’s not the case. Luckily, The Walking Dead fans won’t have to wait too much longer. In a recent press release from Telltale, they stated that The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will be released on Steam, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4 on December 20th, so you can ask mom and dad to get it for you for Christmas. It’s also added that physical copies on disc will be available for PS4 and Xbox One on February 7th with some pre-order incentives as well.
The first of five episodes in The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier will premiere digitally worldwide starting Tuesday December 20th on PC from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and Xbox 360, and on the PlayStationNetwork for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The episode will be available the same day for compatible iOS devices via the App Store, and for compatible Android-based devices via Google Play.
Beginning February 7th, the series will also be available for purchase on a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, which will include the premiere episode for the third season, as well as access to all subsequent episodes in the five episode season for download as they become available.
PlayStation 4 users can preorder the digital version by visiting the product page on the digital store. As a special bonus, PS4 digital preorders also receive a complementary copy of The Walking Dead: Season Two and The Walking Dead: Michonne.
Steam users can preorder the season by visiting the product page on Steam, with a savings of 10% for preordering.
