Think you’ve seen the last of The Walking Dead on your Mac or iOS device? Think again.
Telltale Games, the award-winning developer of recent hit games The Walking Dead: Season One and Fables: The Wolf Among Us, announced Tuesday the coming premiere of the second season of The Walking Dead video game series for Mac, iOS, PC, and home game consoles later this year.
The new season will continue Clementine’s story, the young girl who was orphaned by the zombie apocalypse at the beginning of Season One. She is all alone now, and needs to make her way safely in a world full of monsters both undead and human. You’ll get to choose her destiny through a series of choices just like the first game.
“The terrifying nature of Robert Kirkman’s world has allowed Telltale to push the boundaries of interactive drama in video games to a place that has had fans anxious to know what will happen next in this series,” said Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors in a statement. “Today we can finally lift the veil, albeit only a little, on how this story will continue, and we’ll soon be putting players in the shoes of a lead role that will challenge their expectations of how to survive in a world where no one can be trusted.”
The game, coming later this year, will have five episodes released via download over the course of the season, which will conclude in 2014. If you pre-order the season pass, you’ll get 10 percent off each episode for the Mac version, which will come to $22.49 for the full season.
The Walking Dead has sold over 21 million episodes to date, earning more than 90 game of the year nods from various outlets, as well as an Editor’s Pick award from Cult of Mac.
It’s set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s highly respected comic book series of the same name, which itself was then made into a hit television series for AMC, now in its fourth season.
