The Walking Dead: Season Two will begin later this year, Telltale Games announced today. The apocalyptic world claimed much of the first season's cast, but at least one familiar face will return in a starring role.

Clementine survived with Season One protagonist Lee Everett's guidance, but neither zombies nor the living have much sympathy for a little girl on her own. She'll find her strength, courage, and humanity tested throughout the five-part season, which Telltale says will stretch into 2014.

“Today we can finally lift the veil, albeit only a little, on how this story will continue, and we’ll soon be putting players in the shoes of a lead role that will challenge their expectations of how to survive in a world where no one can be trusted," Telltale co-founder and CEO Dan Connors said in a press release.

Season Two is now available for pre-order on Telltale's website and on Steam for $22.49, and it will also launch on home consoles and iOS.

If you need to catch up on the last season, The Walking Dead: Game of the Year edition will bundle all of the episodes, including post-season anthology DLC 400 Days, in one $30 retail package in November.

    Doesn't this article need a spoiler alert because it contains semi-spoilers pertaining to who died/survived the first season? I mean it doesn't say outright who died but seeing Clementine all by herself kinda implies it. But then again anyone who cared enough to read this article probably played the first season so it doesn't really matter. But I'm just saying.

    Well this has got me excited more than any next gen news has so far.

    "DLC 500 Days" I'm assuming this is a typo and not an actual new DLC am I right?
  • BladedFalcon - October 29, 2013 5:42 p.m.

    It's worded in a weird way, yeah. I think it's referring to the "500 days" chapter that they released a few months ago. So no, it wouldn't be new DLC.

    I felt this was the inevitable conclusion. Clem had to be in the game one way or another, and since it is her story from the very beginning, at some point we would have to take the reigns in guiding her. Now's as good a time as any.
  • BladedFalcon - October 29, 2013 1:02 p.m.

    I am actually very happy with this decision, honestly. I mean, as long as you have a clear idea of what you want to do with the character, continuing the story of a prominent character is almost always better and pays off more for the crowd already following the series, than starting from scratch. More than that though, I think this has to be the one scenario in which I feel VERY interested in taking the shoes of a small child. I mean, in a post-apocaliptic world in which every day is a struggle for survive, you always play as either a grizzld veteran, or a survivor that ends up being a mentor to a younger kid. But how many times have we've had the chance to see the child be the driving force behind the story? That alone should make t interesting. That, and I'm interested to see how the characters from 500 days figure in the story and interact with her.

    I'm not sure how I feel about taking control of a character whose personality and morals have already been established. Still, I trust Telltale to knock it out of the park.

    Yeah she has a back story but don't you want to know how her story continues? I would really miss her if she wouldn't be in the next season. She still is a child and a lot could happen that changes who she is. I'm guessing you finished the first season, if not, here come spoilers. Throughout the first season she had hope that she would find her parents, and she always found the good in people. After seeing her parents shuffeling around on the street and saying goodbye to Lee it looks to me like there is a new Clementine in town, and I want to see what happens next.

    Oh yeah, I definitely want more of her. I was just hoping it would be as an NPC. I worry that I'm going to play it as the choices that I think season 1 Clem would make instead of the choices I would make. Then again, I'm guessing we'll have multiple playable characters. There's no way she's going the whole season without coming into contact with a group of adults, and they wouldn't let a 9-year old make executive decisions for the group.
  • BladedFalcon - October 29, 2013 1:06 p.m.

    That's exactly why it should be interesting IMO. This will serve to challenge the character, besides, as being a kid still in formation of her own views and morals, it still definitely fits for her being capable to react in wildly different ways, like Lee did. I mean, any lessons that she might have learned from Lee and stuff that informed her character are probably still going to be important, but at the end of the day, she was still enough of a blank canvas to swing in different ways.
