Today we can share a first-ever extended first look at The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier, the all-new season in the critically-acclaimed series! In a double dose of good news, we can now also announce that the season's debut on December 20th will take the form of a special two-part premiere, with two episodes coming out on the same day.

Revealed live on stage at The Game Awards tonight, this new video clip introduces newcomer Javier. We witness how the beginning of the zombie plague affected him and his family before we move forward in time to years later, where he encounters a very familiar face...

The first TWO of five episodes in The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier will premiere digitally worldwide starting Tuesday December 20th on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android-based devices. We expect to have info on release dates for additional platforms in the near future too.

Beginning February 14th, the series will also be available for purchase on a special 'Season Pass Disc' for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, which will include the premiere episode for the third season, as well as access to all subsequent episodes in the five episode season for download as they become available.

Beyond the extended first look shared for the first time today, we can give you a few more clues on the themes you'll see in the upcoming season.

When family is all you have left... how far will you go to protect it? 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 protect his family, 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.

We also confirmed today that The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will act as a new beginning for players fresh to the series and unfamiliar with Clementine, as well as a continuation for players who have experienced Seasons One and Two. If you're new to the series, you'll be able to start a story that's tailored to this new beginning. Continuing onward from prior seasons? You'll have multiple options for quickly configuring your own tailored backstory, or importing past save files from various platforms. We'll be sharing additional info on this feature in the coming weeks.
