There’s been no shortage of emotional rollercoaster rides throughout the third season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead series, but like all riveting stories, an end must come to wrap up loose ends and bring closure to those narrative strands that have been left dangling for the last several months. Telltale’s unlikely to give every character in its adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel a happy ending in From the Gallows, but don’t forget, the onus is just as much on you to shape the outcome of Season Three as it is theirs.
In case you missed it earlier this week, the developer released a handy recap video for The Walking Dead‘s latest season, in which various members of the development team discussed the importance of family as a theme in A New Frontier as a whole, and how it affects the choices that players make as new protagonist Javier. Those choices will, Telltale says, “determine which characters now trust Javi to safeguard all they hold dear,” in the wake of a dire situation for all those involved. Following the events of Thicker Than Water, the community of Richmond is on the brink of collapsing in on itself, and you’ll need all the support you can muster in order to ensure that doesn’t happen.
From the Gallows is out next week, May 30 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and mobile devices, and will download automatically on launch for owners of both the Season Pass and the retail version that hit shelves earlier this year.
That about wraps things up for now, but be sure to check back here next week for our review of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier’s nail-biting finale.
