How do I import my save into The Walking Dead: The Final Season?

As choices that you have made in previous seasons can affect your playthrough in The Walking Dead: The Final Season, you will have the option to import your save from previous seasons into the game. You have three different options for doing so:

  1. Import from the Story Builder
  2. Import from The Walking Dead: A New Frontier
  3. Import from The Walking Dead Collection

When you import your save into The Walking Dead: The Final Season, you will be run through the in-game Story Builder to view your choice history over the past seasons. The choices that you have imported will prompt you to select 'Continue' as you reach that point in the Story Builder.

Depending on your save status, the Story Builder will still prompt you for a few choices, to help ensure that your save is imported correctly into The Final Season.


Importing from the Story Builder

Once you generate your story in the Story Builder, you will be able to link your Telltale account, which will upload your generated story to the cloud. Once you do so, launch The Walking Dead: The Final Season. When you begin a new game you'll be asked if you would like to import a save. Select 'Yes', then select 'Check for Choice Data'. You'll be prompted to log into your Telltale account. Once you do so, the game will access your data from the Telltale servers.

For more information about the Story Builder, please see our news article.


Importing from The Walking Dead: A New Frontier

When importing from A New Frontier, you can either import a local save from your machine or from a save on the Telltale cloud. You must have completed your playthrough of A New Frontier in order to import your save.

When you begin a new game of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, you'll be asked if you'd like to import a save. Select 'Yes', and the game will ask if you want to 'Import Local Save' or 'Check for Choice Data'. If you were playing A New Frontier on the same system that you are playing The Final Season on, select 'Import Local Save'. If you want to import your save from the Telltale cloud, select 'Check for Choice Data'.

Please note that depending on what platform you are playing on, you will have some restrictions on which cloud saves you can import into The Final Season:
PS4 - will import PS4, PC, iOS, and Android cloud saves. You will not be able to import Xbox One or Win10 App saves.

When you begin a new game of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, you'll be asked if you'd like to import a save. Select 'Yes', then select 'Import Local Save'. The Final Season will recognize complete save files from A New Frontier, complete save files from Season Two, and incomplete save files from the first season.
