and release window for the next season of the series have been tightly under wraps. Today, we can announce that 'The
Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier' will be premiering this November on consoles, PC/Mac,

include the premiere episode for the third season, as well as access to all subsequent episodes in the five episode season

said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "As a harrowing and horrific drama, 'A New Frontier'
will explore beyond what it means to survive in a world ravaged by the undead, and will see our characters confronting
the new rules of order and justice in a land being brutally reclaimed and rediscovered by what's left of humanity itself."

costs," said Kevin Boyle, Executive Producer on the series. "Years later, meeting her for the
first time, Javier will begin to unravel the mystery of who Clementine has become, as her story intersects with his - both
of them still driven by the things they value most long after society's collapse."
