The Walking Dead Season 3 is back with a brutal new trailer

Telltale Games has released the official launch trailer for The Walking Dead Season 3: A New Frontier.

Seasoned heroine Clementine returns alongside newcomer Javier as they continue to fight for survival across an undead post-apocalyptic world.

The launch trailer features events from the first two episodes – The Ties That Bind Part 1 and 2 – which will launch simultaneously on December 20 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS and Android.

We also catch a glimpse of some familiar faces from The Walking Dead universe, including everyone’s favourite guy with a beard: Jesus.

The Walking Dead Season 3 will be available in physical form at some point in February 2017, with all future episodes available as downloads for owners of a disc-based copy.

Players new to the series can craft their own version of events with a custom backstory, while existing survivors can import vital decisions from the previous two seasons.

The past two seasons of Telltale’s The Walking Dead have made for some fantastically tense moments, and Season 3 is poised to continue this trend with an all new gameplay engine and characters.

If The Walking Dead isn’t your bag, you still have Telltale’s vision of Guardians of the Galaxy to look forward to in 2017.
