Telltale Games teased an upcoming announcement for The Walking Dead Season Two on their Facebook page late Sunday night.
With the phrase “Keep that hair short…”, Telltale posted a single image on Facebook. Fans of the first season of The Walking Dead will recognize the hat as Clementine’s, the young girl and main character of the first season. Along with the image is text hinting that some kind of announcement will be coming on Oct. 29.
The Walking Dead Season One was based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman. When it was released over the course of five episodes in 2012, the game received universal acclaim. Critics and gamers alike praised Telltale Games‘ interpretation of the world in the throes of a zombie apocalypse. Focusing on long-reaching player choice, many decisions made throughout the game impacted events during the whole season. In July, Telltale released an additional episode titled 400 Days which serves as a bridge between the first and second season.
[adsense250itp]The Walking Dead Season Two is currently planned for release by the end of 2013 but a more specific release schedule will likely be revealed during the announcement on Oct. 29. Telltale has made plans to have players’ save files from The Walking Dead Season One and 400 Days transfer over to the second season. Clementine will also be a large part of the story in this season as well.
Telltale Games is currently having a good deal of success with their newest adventure game series The Wolf Among Us. The series takes place in the universe of the Fables comic series where fairy tale characters have been exiled from their homeland and forced to take up residence in New York City. The first episode, “Faith”, has received similar acclaim to The Walking Dead.
