The fourth episode of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier will be releasing on April 25 according to a press release from Telltale Games.
The newest episode, titled Thicker Than Water, is the fourth of five parts of the third season of The Walking Dead adventure game. This latest season has shifted the focus of the narrative onto a new protagonist by the name of Javier. Clementine, a protagonist of the previous season and major character of the first, returns for the third season as a deuteragonist. She’s set to return for the fourth episode in some capacity, although the exact nature of her involvement in this episode’s story is, of course, not yet known. The trailer for Episode 4 was recently released, hinting at some of the things to come:
Episode 4 will be focusing on the community of Richmond in the post-apocalyptic universe. The player will have to navigate the complexities of living in a world full of Walkers and survive the social dynamics of the society while an oncoming horde of Walkers moves ever-closer to Richmond. As is typical for Telltale’s adventure games, the player’s choices in previous episodes will make subtle changes to character appearances and the overall narrative of this latest episode.
The series has largely been successful to Telltale Games; the The Walking Dead series of adventure game had sold 28 million episodes as of July 2014. A New Frontier has over 150,000 owners on Steam according to Steam Spy.
Thicker Than Water will release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Android, and iOS simultaneously on April 25.
