The fourth episode in Telltale’s third season of The Walking Dead is due out next week on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and mobile devices and, judging by today’s launch trailer, things have gone from bad to worse since the events that transpired in last month’s episode. Thicker Than Water will be available to download April 25 for all season pass holders and owners of the physical edition released earlier this year, both of which grant access to all five of Season Three’s episodes as and when they’re released.
Having discovered the true nature of the New Frontier’s leadership, tensions begin to fray within the inner circles of the Garcia family, and, as before, it’ll be up to players to ultimately dictate how events affect and shape each family member’s fate as protagonist Javier. But verbal squabbles aren’t the only situations that’ll require your attention – a much more urgent matter has reared its ugly head.
A herd of walkers is steadily approaching the gates of Richmond and its residents are, more than ever, feeling the pressure of life in the post-apocalypse. Is blood truly thicker than water, or is every last human still living worth protecting? It looks like the onus will be on you to decide who’s worthy of being trusted.
With just one final episode to follow Thicker Than Water, fans can hopefully expect the various narrative strands unraveled at the beginning of Season Three to start tying up into a neat bow by the episode’s end, but don’t expect any proper finality until its conclusion, which, should Telltale stick to its current trend, will be with us next month.
