If the decisions made for each new episode of The Walking Dead is not to your liking, there's another way to enjoy the franchise without the kind of frustration of slow filler episodes.

Telltale Games has announced the release date for its title, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier. This is officially the third season of the game, set to debut on Dec. 20.


Announced via Telltale Games' official blog, the new game will then continue on early next year on Feb. 7 via the special Season Pass Disc for PS4 and Xbox One. According to the developer, this disc will already come with the first five episodes for season 3, as well as access to the following four episodes once they become available for download.

As for the story, Telltale Games has already revealed a small synopsis of what's to come:

"When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? Four years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to find the family taken from him, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last."

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier is already available for preorders, both for the digital and the retail versions. The developer did hint that fans can get some more bonus offers for these preorders—PS4 players can expect a complimentary copy of The Walking Dead: Season Two and The Walking Dead: Michonne.


This early access is great if you haven't gotten started on the latter releases. Steam users can get a 10% discount for preorders.

If you're not yet convinced, look forward to Dec. 1 at The Game Awards, where the developer is planning to reveal a special extended first look at the premiere episode.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier will be available on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android.
