Telltale Games announced yesterday that the next chapter in The Walking Dead: Michonne trilogy (based on the popular Robert Kirkman comic that also inspired The Walking Dead TV series) will be coming sooner than you think. Telltale has a bit of a habit of taking on too many jobs at once, and as a result of that fans of their games had to learn to exercise patience due to the long release cycles. Minecraft: Story Mode was a welcome change of pace with episodes releasing in quick succession, and now their spinoff featuring the blade-wielding Michonne will get its second episode soon: Tuesday, March 29th!
A quick little recap was also released that shows off some of the major choices players were able to make in the first episode, so if you haven’t played it yet I suggest you do not watch the video.
Episode 2, titled “Give No Shelter” continuous the story of Michonne and her band of survivors as they deal with the inhabitants of a nearby floating village they encountered while looking for supplies to fix their boat with.
The conclusion to this trilogy will be released at some point in April, and the game is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Android and iOS devices. I played the first episode for a review and I quite liked it. You can read my thoughts on it here.
I liked the first episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne and I am very much looking forward to seeing where the story is going to go. The story and the characters seem interesting enough and I’ve always loved Robert Kirkman’s take on the zombie apocalypse and his focus on showing what regular life is like in that world over focusing too much on the gore. On to the next one!
