Walking Dead season two will have more Clementine, Kenny

The Walking Dead season two will bring back Clementine, and explore the fate of Kenny, according to Telltale.

Telltale Games gave us a small taste of what's in store for season two of The Walking Dead with the recently released 400 Days DLC. Aside from a brief cameo or two, though, we didn't see any sign of returning favorites from the previous season. At a San Diego Comic-Con panel, the studio confirmed that some familiar faces will be back. Spoilers follow.

IGN reports that the panel revealed Clementine "will definitely be a part of" the season. To that end, it showed a teaser image of what appeared to be Clementine sitting in the rain next to another child. It also stated that Kenny's fate "will be explored," after it was left somewhat nebulous by the events of season one. The panel didn't state if either character will be playable, though, so we're still not sure who will serve as the protagonist of this story.

Season two is coming this fall.

      Huh? I thought what happened to Kenny was pretty obvious actually.

        I thought so too. If this is true, it's a pretty shitty way to reveal a surprise twist or whatever before even playing the game..

        So, you actually saw Kenny die, then?. Because no, you didn't.

          If they retcon the ending choices of the first season that would cheapen the story quite a bit. It was heavily implied that Clem did shoot Kenny if that's how you chose.

            Wrong person. You don't play as Kenny. You are Lee. Kenny is the older guy.

              Yep. And Kenny's story ends in the same place (with some irrelevant changes - constants and variables) regardless of your actions.

                I for one am excited to know what happened to him. you don't really know so even if he does die down in that building at least you know.

        You're right it was pretty obvious to me that they were going to bring him back.

          He somehow falls down a hole into a room filled with zombies. He dashes off-screen and that is the last you ever see of him. No actual on-screen death.

        Did you read the article at all? It sounds more like they will cameo Kenny and Clem, but that it will include more from some of the new characters from the 400 days DLC which makes sense.

      No thank you, I like those characters, but I don't want to continue with them.

            Do you REALLY hope for that? I'm of the mind that the level of execution for the story in TWD would not have been possible if many of your choices had drastic impacts on the narrative.

            TWD gives you the exact right amount of agency, as far as I'm concerned. Anything more would break the design of what they're trying to accomplish. Linear is not bad.

              I think they handled it fine. I *felt* like I was in control, even though the reality is that the decisions only slightly impact the end game. Still felt like I was in control and had to make tough calls.

              The only decision I didn't enjoy was - cutting off Lee's arm. I chose not to, yet he acted like I had. He would only use one arm to climb and hold on to ledsges. It broke the immersion to know that the game didn't care what I had chosen.

              do I hope for it? hell yeah ! why not? theres 0 replayability as it is, they should have more than enough budget to make it work. Will it stop me from buying the new one, of cours not.

                More than enough budget? I don't think you know what you're talking about.

                I've replayed TWD three times. Do you not enjoy watching your favorite movie multiple times? Your choices DO matter all throughout the game, even if you eventually end up at the same point.

                What's interesting is that the choices matter more to you (as the player) than the actual game world itself.

      Man that's a crappy spoiler... even if you think it's not. I've only completed Ep 1, but now I know that Clementine is safe regardless of decisions I make...

        Technically it would be considered returning even if they came back as a zombie

        How long does the statute of limitation need to be? All of thee game has been released for over 6 months. It's like a 10 hour game. If you haven't finished it yet, you aren't trying very hard

          Well, it doesn't spoil only the earlier season but also the season that's not out yet.

            She lived. So it's not really a spoiler to say she will be in the next episode in some capacity. And I did notice while playing that we never actually see Kenny die, as we do with all the others. I just don't see this as a big deal.

              It's a spoiler to say she lived. This takes a lot away from the game as you know no matter what situation she's put in, or what decisions you make.. she will survive.

                If you are interested in the new game and haven't even bothered playing the previous one yet, you aren't trying very hard. It can't be a spoiler forever. Hey man Mario doesn't find the princess till 8-4

                  I didn't actively seek out info on the new game, because I am interested in it.. but don't want what happens in the first spoiled. It was posted as a news item here in chatty, and before I'd even realized it, I'd read a spoiler. That happens when it's the first bloody line of the article.

                  Whatever.. I'm obviously in the minority here. Just because I haven't had time to make my way through all the episodes yet, doesn't mean I don't have interest in the series.

                  If you know who Kenny and Clementine are then you must have played the games, in which case why aren't you done? They aren't that long.

          This is such a stupid argument. It takes little to zero effort to NOT spoil something, and some people can't play every game the moment it is released. Have some common courtesy (not necessarily you specifically, just people who spoil shit in general).

      I know we've talked about this before, but geesh I hate the false outrage over spoilers. If you actually cared about having this game spoiled you would have

      A.) finished it sometime in the last six months
      B.) not put yourself into a position where things can be spoiled for you

      I'm also disappointed that our culture has come to such a point where it's all about the surprise. If a piece of fiction is ruined or lessened for you because you are privy to a 'surprise' moment, then I'm guessing that piece wasn't too strong in the first place. This stuff should be more about the trajectory/moments leading up to that surprise, not the event itself.

        To be fair about point B.), this one is right in the title so somewhat unavoidable if you're a regular here.

        July 22, 2013 4:09 PM

        It's not about the "surprise" exactly, knowing what happens removes tension and buildup. Fiction for me is about escaping and the experience - which is ruined if I know what is going to happen.

      I didn't even finish Season 1. I got tired of my savegames getting all fucked up and replaying certain episodes over and over again. Replaying once or twice isn't bad...several times, fuck that. Plus the decisions didn't seem to matter anyway.

      • reply
        July 22, 2013 2:48 PM

        Only one of the decisions mattered for more than a few cutscenes, but even then that individual became part of the scenery until they finally bit it.
