The latest episode in Telltale Games' acclaimed The Walking Dead series A New Frontier is finally available. Episode Four: Thicker Than Water, can now be downloaded on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Later this week players on iOS and Android will be able to download the latest episode as well.
If you own the The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier season pass on any of these platforms, Episode Four should unlock automatically for you. If you're showing up a little late to the party, no worries. After downloading the season pass you'll gain access to all four episodes straight away, so you can catch up on your own time. When the fifth and final episode releases, it will download and update right away so you can jump right in.
As you can tell from the trailer above, things are heating up quite a bit in this penultimate series episode. Telltale Games knows how to tell an effective story -- it's what they've built their reputation upon -- and The Walking Dead is a license they've always done justice. You can expect plenty of shocking twists, plenty of gore, and plenty of zombies. It also features one of the best casts of characters we've ever met in a game.
"Upon discovering the true nature of the New Frontier's leadership, relationships within the Garcia family have come to a head. As Javier, you will decide the shape and nature of your chosen family. All the while, a herd of walkers moves ever closer to Richmond, putting pressure on allies and enemies alike. With distrust running rampant, you'll have to determine if blood is thicker than water..."
"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."
