“All good things must come to an end” that phrase holds true with Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead.  The road so far has been a brilliant masterpiece of twists and turns few could have ever seen coming.  Now, this next season will see it all come to an end with The Walking Dead: The Final Season.  Today’s SDCC 2018 teaser reveals Clementine’s swan song to not be a peaceful one, as she’s once again in danger.

Clementine, now a fierce and capable survivor, has reached the final chapter in her journey. After years on the road facing threats both living and dead, a secluded school might finally be her chance for a home. But protecting it will mean sacrifice. Clem must build a life and become a leader while still watching over AJ, an orphaned boy and the closest thing to family she has left. In this gripping, emotional final season, you will define your relationships, fight the undead, and determine how Clementine’s story ends.

When The Final Season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead hits Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on August 14, 2018 (with Nintendo Switch releasing later in 2018), each episode will include the following innovations:

  • Emotional, Gut-Wrenching Story – See Clementine’s journey through to the end. As she builds a new life, you will have to grapple with new types of choices and live with the consequences as AJ looks on, learning from your every move.
  • A new over-the-shoulder camera system, greater freedom to explore detailed environments, and scenes with unscripted combat capture the fear of living in a world overrun by the undead and create the most engaging The Walking Dead game yet.
  • The all-new Graphic Black art style rips the ink from the pages of the Eisner Award-winning comic book series and brings the world of The Walking Dead

If this teaser trailer isn’t enough, fear not because during San Diego Comic Con, Telltale Games plans to show off footage of their SDCC demo on their YouTube Page on Friday, July 20th.  If you happen to be attending the annual convention, you’ll be able to experience this demo yourself on Thursday, July 19.

For international gamers, The Final Season will have French, Germa, Latin-American Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese in Subs and Dubs, with Italian, Russian, and Chinese Subs Only at Launch.
