Telltale finally took the wraps off of some plot and release information for The Walking Dead: Season Two, and has opened PC and Mac pre-orders.
Telltale Games took the wraps off of The Walking Dead: Season Two today. The five-episode series will begin later this year, and last into 2014. It's planned for PC, Mac, home consoles, iOS, and "additional platforms." First season spoilers follow.
Players will take the role of Clementine herself, who has been left on her own after the events of the first season. You'll still be faced with outwitting zombies and tough moral choices, but through the lens of a young girl instead of the physically stronger and more mature Lee.
"The terrifying nature of Robert Kirkman's world has allowed Telltale to push the boundaries of interactive drama in video games to a place that has had fans anxious to know what will happen next in this series," said Telltale CEO Dan Connors, in the announcement. "Today we can finally lift the veil, albeit only a little, on how this story will continue, and we'll soon be putting players in the shoes of a lead role that will challenge their expectations of how to survive in a world where no one can be trusted."
The PC and Mac versions are available for pre-order on the official site and through Steam, at a 10% discount. That puts them at $22.49, instead of the standard season price of $25.
Telltale also announced that it will release a Game of the Year Edition of the first season in November. That set will include the five episodes of the first season, along with its 400 Days DLC, for $29.99. This is one of the rare times that designation is appropriate, so mark this on your calendars, folks.

just before I saw the paycheck that said $6883, I didnt believe that...my... neighbour woz like truly making money part-...
I liked the idea of Clementine having a completely unknown future and fate. I think I'll wait and see on this one.
I was hoping Clem would be back as a cameo or a small role as you wonder around with a new group of characters and story...
