Telltale Games today announced a new instalment for the The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series, set to premiere this fall.
The studio behind the best-selling and award-winning series, alongside Robert Kirkman – the Eisner Award-winning creator and writer of The Walking Dead, unveiled details for the next instalment titled: The Walking Dead: Michonne.
It stars Michonne as she is haunted by her past and coping with unimaginable loss and regret. It explores her untold journey during the time between comic book issues #126 and #139. Through three episodes, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of the group, and what eventually brought her back.
“In many ways, Michonne herself is a reflection of the world of The Walking Dead. She is brutal and cold on the outside, but deep beneath what is broken, she remains hopeful, trying to claw her way out of the darkness that surrounds her,” said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead.
“In our effort to bring the world of the comic and the world of the Telltale series closer together, there is no greater character than Michonne to help bridge that gap.”
Telltale’s The Walking Dead series has gone on to sell over 44 million episodes worldwide and earned more than 100 Game of the Year awards including numerous BAFTA Awards.
“Michonne’s complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games.
“With this mini-series, players will experience Michonne’s challenges first-hand, and the choices they make will shape her journey. We’re incredibly honored by Robert for the opportunity to share this untold story in The Walking Dead universe.”
Out this fall, the mini-series will be available for download on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and compatible iOS devices and Android-based devices.
Players will require at least the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two in order to play The Walking Dead: Michonne.
