400 Days Trailer

Well, I figure since there might be people out there who don't want 400 Days spoiled in any way, we should make a thread for potential theories based on the trailer in the Spoilers forum.
(Link to the trailer:

We'll start off with the potential return of Kenny.

It's blurry, no doubt. But there were a few people speculating the truck driver could be Kenny. I'm not entirely convinced, since it seems like a few of these stories are from the start of the apocalypse. If that's the case, it doesn't make sense for Kenny to be there.

On top of that, Russel seems like he's in pretty good shape despite the end of the world. His clothes are still in decent repair, he has no stubble to speak of. There are still a few corpses lying around, but I'd guess this is fairly early into things. Then there's the logistics of Kenny getting a working truck after what he's been through, and in Savanna of all places. We're lead to believe the scavengers in Crawford dismantled pretty much every vehicle they could get their hands on, so Kenny would have to get pretty far from there to find a working vehicle.

However, assuming that not all of the stories are in the same timeframe, and ignoring the other details entirely, there's that small chance that Kenny escaped and found a decent truck. The odds aren't in his favor, but if anyone can do it, it's Kenny. Thoughts or other ideas?

Edit: If you find the image too small, the time in the trailer when the truck appears is ~37-38 seconds.

  • My theories from the other thread and a few others:

    - Obvious who Wyatt and Russell are. Bonnie is the one in a jacket similar to Carley's in the corn field and Chel is the person in the green shirt I think. Wonder who the asian guy will be, he seemed like one of the main characters. Or is he Vince? He didn't look Asian from the vine video.
    - I think that is Doug in the trailer at 35 seconds, if you look closely the body has blonde hair and a jacket that looks like Doug's. But that means it will be Carley for those of us who saved her instead.
    - Bald Andy St. John at 21 seconds lol as well as Boyd, one of the cancer survivors in Savannah.
    - Person Bonnie is talking to at around 25 seconds could be Vernon, or his brother? Something about him looks familiar.
    - The cornfield could be the St. John's, the one that Ben/Carley/Doug come through to save you. Maybe the guy at 21 seconds could be Andy and this might be a St. John/Bandit conflict. Episode 2 does take place 3 months after the apocalypse started, maybe Andy was bald when it began? Bonnie could be one of the bandits. This could be the beginning of the fight between St. Johns and Bandits, and Bonnie is hunted by them at their farm
    - The gas station could be the one that Kenny said Duck got grabbed.
    - The campervan in the video could be the one that ends up at the Motel.

    And lots of people have been saying that from the five people, maybe only 2 survive and are the people who meet Clementine at the end of Episode 5. Maybe one of the two girls as well as one of the three guys?
  • Wow I am over the moon happy right now, that looked awesome.
  • I feel we may be going back to the St Johns farm by the look of those fields
  • Now we just need a release date.:rolleyes:
  • "Oh boy, can't wait to see when I can get it!"
    "oh... ok..."
    But seriously, this looks great :)
  • Everybody has been saying that this is going to be between Episode 1 and 2, but I think the DLC is all over the place. If you've seen the blog posts, did you notice specific dates? Each story might take place in each date. So since one story might take 41 days into the outbreak(Wyatt's date), while another 236 days in the outbreak. (Shel's date)
  • excited for this DLC and season 2. I hope it's as good as the first season was
  • The truck driver MIGHT be Kenny, but I'm not holding my breath. Since each of the five characters had their own day , like Day 2, or Day 184, or whatever the days were, then since there are five stories, I'd assume that we control each of the five characters on their day. Since these days range from 2 all the way to 400, which is more than a year after the apocalypse, seeing characters from Season 1 aside from Clive and Boyd is definitely a possibility.

    And, considering that Episodes 3-5 all took place around 3 1/2 months after the beginning, we might see some familiar faces depending on what the days are and get some closure. Like others have said before, since the story is based around that gas station, one of the days is Day 2, and we know that Duck got grabbed at one, there's a chance we'll get to see that happen. Here's hoping other background events from Season 1 are explored upon. On a side note, I think it's cool that they took two extremely minor characters like Boyd and Clive and put them in this. Can't wait to see what those two crazy cats are up to!
  • So am i right in the assumption that 400 days takes place over the name dropped 400 days? If so the two survivors would be a little late in meeting Clem in the field if she's been there for 10 months.

    A few hints that there could be season one references. Little frustrating that we can't get clearer pictures of some of the moments in that trailer.

    Is that the road Carley/Doug died on? It looks like it and the corpse could be Doug, but if that's the case then where's the walker?

    Kenny? Very hard to see anything of the truck driver. Could be Kenny, since it looks vaguely like him, but if that is the same road we've seen before then what is Kenny doing heading back to the motel by himself (having covered serious ground to get that far) I'd approach that idea with a lot of caution.

    Only other thing i can read from the trailer is that it will be fantastic.
