The Walking Dead: The Final Season Is Shambling Forward With New Gameplay

The Walking Dead

New gameplay for The Walking Dead: The Final Season has come out of SDCC to get us all worried for how Clem’s story will wrap in The Walking Dead

The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season kicks off on August 14th for those who aim to play it on the PS4, Xbox One, or PC. For those looking to see how Telltale Games is wrapping up this story on the Switch you will have to wait a bit longer for that. This is most likely not why you are here right now as this is not the biggest of updates to go with for this version of The Walking Dead. Maybe it is, but then you may have missed out on the new gameplay that came out for the game during this year's SDCC. Yes, we have some more to actually look at for the game to see how it is all getting changed up to give us a great ending.

That all said, let us move right along to the gameplay for The Walking Dead: The Final Season here. It is short and sweet with a bit of a tease for what we should expect from the game, but I have a feeling this is not all from the first episode alone as it does look like there is way more going on and some extra trust spread out there that Clem would need some time to build. I could be wrong and this is a different version of The Walking Dead than we have all been led to believe. I doubt that, but you can see what I am talking about just below with the little bit that was out there for the masses who did not make it out to the convention this year.

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.

Now that you have been properly teased here, let me present to you the first fifteen minutes of the first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season. At least as it has been coined so far and shown out during one of the panels that took place out at SDCC. It focuses way more on how Clem and AJ's relationship has grown and where both of the characters are at this point. It also looks like there will be a lot of callbacks to the past seasons with how some of the events play out and the struggle to keep a decent morality in The Walking Dead universe. I will not mention more as it could spoil this whole part of the episode and those trying to stay spoiler free can just move right along at this point.
