The season finale for Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead: A New Frontier is due to launch on May 30 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and mobile devices, the developer has announced. Running with the suitably bleak title of From the Gallows, the fifth and final episode of Season Three picks up right where the previous episode, Thicker Than Water, left off.
As with all past episodes, From the Gallows will begin downloading automatically for all season pass holders upon launch, with those who picked up the physical edition released earlier this year also able to grab it on their chosen platform at no additional cost.
So, with an end date now locked in for A New Frontier, are we to expect a satisfying conclusion for protagonist Javier and the community of Richmond? Telltale provides no definitive answers on its blog, but does promise that big things are “about to go down,” for all those poor souls eking out a living in the zombie apocalypse. Likewise, Telltale’s Scott Butterworth says that From the Gallows will be the studio’s most “tailored episode to date,” with all of the tough decisions made and relationships you’ve established up to this point coming to a head in order to determine who will (and won’t) trust Javi to best safeguard their interests.
That’s all Telltale’s willing to share for now, but be on the lookout for From the Gallows’ launch trailer, which is due to arrive sometime this week. In the meantime, if you’ve yet to experience the ups and downs of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier so far, you can find our review of all previous episodes here.
