TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

In the coming months, Telltale Games will release three more episodes of their adventure game The Walking Dead. They won't stop there, though. Telltale marketing executive Steve Allison said that they will create a second season eventually as well.

"Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do," Allison told Polygon.

The Walking Dead has been a huge critical and commercial success for Telltale. The first episode, "A New Day," sold almost 1.7 million copies in its first two months. It's said to be the company's fastest-selling game ever.

The game starts before the events of the Walking Dead show and comic. Lee Everett, a man convicted of murder, has been unexpectedly free as a zombie outbreak sweeps the globe. He and a small group of survivors band together in order to stay alive. As Lee, players must endure zombie attacks as well as internal strife among the survivors.

It's not clear whether the second season of the game will be a direct continuation of the first season. They might just decide to tell a new story with a completely different cast of characters. I'd be happy with either. The writing for these games has proven top-notch so I have faith that Telltale could craft another compelling set of survivors for us to follow.

Episode 3 of Walking Dead will be available in August. "Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do."

  • @CrazyandProud said: Won't be older, that would require the game to take place further in time then where the comics are at. I don't think Molly will replace Lee, she has an established personality.

    I think that an older Clem would also violate any deals with Kirkman - I doubt he would like to skip his own work several years, so no.

    We will either see Omid, Christa and Clem as a new group with either playable, or an entire new protagonist, which I would prefer.

    This is simple: There is a timeline in the comic that has run for X months/years, beginning with the outbreak at let's call it day 0. At that time Rick was in hospital and Lee on his way to prison. But, they weren't the only people affected by the otubreak - there were people all over the world dying and fighting for their survival - so why stick to a small group we have already learned to love, hate and is also severely depleted? In Georgia, when there's a whole world in danger?

    A lot can be made with a zombie outbreak, like how it goes in a hospital in Germany, on a fishing boat outside Iceland, 'riots' in Seattle, saving a school full of kids in Mexico... The possibilities are endless - and as an added bonus, most countries have a lot more restrictive weapon laws than the US, so finding guns and ammo will be a MUCH larger problem in such countries.

    I think TTG went the right way by making this game a) more about relations and b) using the zombies as scares, so that's not a problem - and neither is the people, since we know TTG can write good and engaging characters with believble personalities.

    So, I think the Lee and Clementine story has run its course, despite the sequel hook set up.

    Please TTG, let us see new characters in a new story arc.

    Molly mysteriously left at the end of Episode 4.
    She also knows the city well and we know she hasn't left the city with the other group.

    Which means more then likely she still would be in the city when all it all goes to hell. I wouldn't be surprised if she finds clementine wandering around. She would definitively save her and not let he die off.

    ----

    I think they may play clementine like a replacement for Mollys sister who died. And Clementine looks to molly as a promintent female figure she could emulate. But I feel that Molly thinks she isn't good enough to take care of Clementine, so they look for a family for her.
    The ideal family is of course Omid and That other lady. They probably searched for clementine and had to leave because things went to hell. Molly probably thinks the city is too much salvaged out and agrees to help clementine to find omid.

    Episode 1 of Season 2 would probably be trying to find them in the city, and finally leaving for the country. They may kill off molly in episode 1 season 2. An leave you with omid just to piss people off :P

    I am still standing by it being a new character we have yet to meet. Molly might show up, but since there is an established personality for her, it would difficult to shape her like we did with Lee.

  • I have a feeling that when lee "died" he might not become a zombie and maybe if clementine left him he could of found clem after fighting his way out of savanah or if clementine shot maybe she shot just above his head and said I"im sorry lee i cant do this" and about lees possibly lost arm it could start with him having no arm already or him cutting it off, lee being the protagnist i dont think is likely but lee is definitly the protagnist or deurotagnist but i think most likely its gonna be omid/christa as main character for Season 2

    Devs already confirmed he was dead.

  • I'd love to see options in the episodes where you could A) Defend at camp or B) Scout for food. Different people go with you and different stuff happens. Would give more replay value.

    I'd also like to see more "disposable" characters. Like if you have 5 to start with and 1 dies a chapter, but it really doesn't matter who. So in chapter 5, first player could have character A with them while second player could have character E with them. (This of course does not include "main" characters like Kenny that is essential to the story)


    (copied from rate the game thread. just in case anyone of import reads this one and not the other)

  • suggestion: make black people look like black people

    no light, bright damn near white girls like clementine

    or women with long flowing straight flat hair like christa.

    You don't know what you're talking about. We come in all shapes, color and sizes.

    Anything else is due to in game lighting.

  • How come he gets to go around being all racist all the time? Saying if Lee was white, he would get it on with clem etc.?

  • @Tyrant said: You don't know what you're talking about. We come in all shapes, color and sizes.
