The two-part premiere of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier launched to widespread critical acclaim. In their review of the premiere, IGN.com said that, “Smart characterization and writing for Javi and his family, plus the return of Clementine, add weight to a largely unfamiliar but already engaging new frontier that I can’t wait to continue to explore,” adding that its “uncharted territory feels familiar and, excitingly, fresh.” GamesRadar said that A New Frontier, “demonstrates the resonant power of interactive storytelling,” and that it, “finds the right balance between rewarding longtime players who’ve shaped their own version of the story and welcoming those who might be hopping aboard this grim adventure for the first time.” Game Informer said the two-part premiere has, “shocking deaths, intense betrayals, and split-second decisions to second-guess,” claiming that “Everything leads up to a hell of a cliffhanger, making me intrigued to see what happens next.”
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier acts as both a new beginning for players fresh to the series and unfamiliar with Clementine, as well as a continuation for players who have experienced Seasons One and Two. Players new to the series are able to start a story that is tailored to this new beginning. Players continuing onward from prior seasons have multiple options for quickly configuring their tailored backstory, or importing past save files from various platforms.
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier Episode Three: ‘Above The Law” is rated ‘M’ (Mature) for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, and Use of Drugs by the ESRB. Future content in the season is yet to be rated.
