Telltale Also Announces the Return of Gary Whitta for Season Four
The entire Telltale Walking Dead saga will be available in a new single package called The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection for PS4 and Xbox One.
The collection includes Seasons 1-3, the Michonne mini-series, and the standalone 400 Days episode. That’s 19 episodes in total, and with each spanning approximately two hours in length, there’s a lot of game here. The most interesting tidbit is that Telltale is giving earlier seasons a visual upgrade. While the comparison shots are from the first season, the visual bump extends to all the games except Season Three: The New Frontier, which already used a new graphics engine.
Telltale also took the time to announce that Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Book of Eli) will return as a Story Consultant for the fourth and final season of The Walking Dead. Whitta wrote the fourth episode of season one and the 400 Days instalment.
Whitta had this to say about his involvement in the new season:
“Collaborating with Telltale on the first season of Clementine’s journey through the world of The Walking Dead was one of the highlights of my career, so reuniting with them to now bring her story to a close with this final season feels like a homecoming. Clementine has become not just one of the most compelling characters in the Walking Dead pantheon but one of the great video game characters of all time. I hope we’re able to do justice to her and to her millions of fans. This one feels special.”
The fourth season, The Walking Dead: The Final Season, is confirmed for a 2018 release on consoles, mobile, and PC. It will continue and conclude the story of Clementine.
The Walking Dead Collection will cost $49.99 and will be out on December 5th.
