We thought the end was nigh previously, when the Telltale Games’ struggles threatened the very existence of The Walking Dead. But now, after being taken on to reach a proper conclusion by Skybound Games, the end really is here. Yep, The Walking Dead: The Final Season concludes. Now.
Today sees Clementine’s story come to a close as The Walking Dead: The Final Season ‘Take Us Back’ releases on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in the Epic Games Store.
After years on the road facing threats from both the living and dead, a secluded school might finally be Clementine’s chance for a home. A proper home. See, old Clem has become a leader while watching over AJ, an orphaned boy and the closest thing to family she has left, but in the aftermath of an explosive plan to save her friends, Clementine must now lead her flock of lost children back home. The problem is, a herd of walkers, the vengeful raiders, and AJ’s troubled mind all stand in her way. Can she be the savior they need her to be? Can you help Clem overcome her issues?
“It’s been an amazing experience working with the Still Not Bitten team to finish the final two episodes of TELLTALE’S THE WALKING DEAD for fans,” said Skybound Games CEO Ian Howe. “I’d like to thank the team for their dedication to completing Clementine’s story, and the fans for embracing Skybound Games as we worked to help bring closure to a story near-and-dear to so many.”
With Telltale’s The Walking Dead having sold millions of episodes to date, this is a bit of an iconic moment in the gaming landscape, as a once staple of the scene comes to it’s final end. Surely you won’t be missing out?
