TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

posted by Yusuf Koroma on - last edited - Viewed by 24.5K users

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."

If you save clementine she opens up to you if you save billy,billy opens up to you? or maybe a christa and omid hate eachover thing because of X And Y happened and there is a choice between them? christa and omid will always say ' Who is right me or HER ' and Christa would say things to you like ' Omid is so stupid and ugly, dont you agree' if you say yes omid will hear you and you become PRO christa and if you say no Omid will like you more and christa will hate you if you stay quiet you will open your eyes a bit more ( like omids eyes ) and indicate he is behind christa. Maybe we could get a choice to shoot people and that would result in a game over? like christa sittiling down on a bench if you have a gun in your inventory you can shoot christa and christas new boyfriend ( or girlfriend ) will shoot you for that? Or maybe in a tense ' Talk ' if you say the wrong thing you get shot? Im hoping for a path situation where there is a path in a park splitting into 2 places and you choose left OR right if you go left X Dies and if you go right Y Dies? Maybe we could have a zombie attacking you and you can say things if you're surrounded by a group of people? A zombie X or Y ( depends where you went ) attacks you you could shout ' Run, dont worry about me ' ( Game over ) ' Help ' ( Omid/Christa comes to save you ) or Silence ( makes a season 1 zombie QQQQQQQQQQQE happen ) We should have a carley ( Christa ) Doug ( Omid ) Situation but like in a building and rubble collapses and christa and omid are grabbing on to the edge of a building ( skyscraper ) and you choose? if you save christa she dies giving birth. if you save Omid he dies because his leg breaks ( his bone was made weaker in season 1? ) if you Watch them fall to their death they both lose grip and hold hands as they fall ( Determant Be neutral and always ask them to get backtogether and stuff ) when they fall THERE IS NO GAME OVER! maybe there could be a pool of water below them and now christa and omid are out to get you for letting them drop? or they die. maybe there should be a We found a working laptop ( keep it ) OR a gameboy or something - Changes a ton in the group, If you choose the laptop a girl called bob breaks it open in the middle of the night and gets a sharp part and kills herself with it. If you get the gameboy ( with headphones ) a girl named brad doesnt notice a incoming walker First person shooter mode activates and you have a choice to let brad die or save her. If brad dies she comes back to life and kills her brother, Doug. Doug was a invaluable member of the group he was carley but male version. even you go in a pet store you see a young puppy ( Insert most violent dog breed here ) or a old ( <-- Ditto) and you pick what one you want to keep because walkers are invading. if you save the puppy he sees a chew toy and you see there is a exit there, if you choose the old dog he attacks a girl called jeniffer gets bitten by the dog causing him to get eaten?

    LAST ONE.

    You find a girl in a market she sees you and calls you over you go over. She says her sister was bitten ( Was going to go with zombieland but thought, NAH ) do you waste the bullet and risk the noise ( just realised its kinda like irene, let me change it up more) or take her back to your base to shoot her OR you can leave her...

    Why take her to the base?
    wouldnt you want to be shot if you were bitten?
    ( Insert something i cant think of here )

    Why shouldnt you?

    She could be from another group see how ' well ' ( determant) you're doing and come to attack

    She may have a loaded gun on her

    The bitten girl could come back in the car/van/truck ( Determant )

    JUST SO MANY POSSIBILITYS IN THE WALKING DEAD! my brain hurts from all the rubbish ideas. Please Im begigng you at least read.

  • I highly doubt Andre survived the apocalypse, as he had trouble mustering up the courage to even deal with zombie Chet. Besides, although he wasn't in the game long, his character's personality had been established (nice, caring and semi-cowardly), and that would take away the player's choice of developing their own personality for their protagonist.

    Many things can happen in three months, the game would show us through ourselves how much he did change. So far I see it. It could be, I would like it.

  • @Kaserkin said: What about Chet? I think most people went to look for help by day so they didn't meet Andre.

    But if you go by night, Chet is a zombie so we won't be playing as him.....

    Heh, Telltale even joked about playing as zombie Chet during season 2. :D

  • Please let it be Molly. Ninja chicks kick ass.

  • @onlyamonkey said: Please let it be Molly. Ninja chicks kick ass.

    But that kills the mood the game series is supposed to set. Molly is extremely competent, which makes it hard to believe anything could actually happen to her without the situation being incredibly "gamed up". She wouldn't allow for tension the way Lee did with the encounter with Sandra, or the police officer who was escorting him to Macon.

    Well that's just the thing: That's not true. Although Molly seems fairly capable, and acts like she's the toughest one in the room, she is only used to working alone. She doesn't work with anyone else and that is her greatest weakness, no matter how strong of a fighter she is, she is inexperienced when it comes to interaction with other survivors. Which is why I think having her as the playable character of Season Two would be so interesting, dealing with the isolated state of mind she has placed herself in since her sister's death crumbling as she becomes part of a group. She is also largely undefined excluding her backstory, while she has a bit of a fiery personality, her moral outlook is still largely ambiguous and able to be molded to the player's choices. And I think that given what happens in Episode Five with the horde shambling into Savannah, she probably will leave the city and run into Clementine, Christa, and Omid no matter what. And I believe that her previous interaction with them is a much stronger starting point for a second season than having to be someone entirely new with no experience whatsoever with the characters we've come to know and love from the first season. The fact remains, the players know exactly who these people are, they are going to make choices based upon that. Thusly, Molly's relative familiarity with them would greatly add some connectivity to the series and would in my opinion prevent any chance of The Walking Dead: Season Two: Some Random Person Comes Along Spends About Two Episodes Getting To Know The Characters We Already Know And Gets Into Shenanigans With The Group Alongside New Characters That Our New Character Apparently Knows That We As The Player Don't. I really hope she is the protagonist simply because she's a very interesting character with a defined background (much like Lee was at the beginning of the game) and yet still not one person can with much sense of accuracy say what she's going to do. In this, she has a great potential for player input to define who she is and what she will do when faced with the choices and responsibilities of working with a group and caring about more than just survival. I feel as though up until she meets Lee in Episode Four, Molly has been surviving for the sake of survival, for her sister. And when she sees the few glimpses of humanity in the group, and finds her sister's picture/ultimately gets her "revenge" on Crawford, she really is at a loss as to where she is supposed to go and what she is supposed to do. And I believe she leaves because she is afraid to face that humanity that she previously felt was lost in the world, she is scared of hope because she is afraid that she will lose it, and that is a character conflict that would be very powerful if they use her as a protagonist. I'm really hoping for Molly, but if she isn't I won't be too disappointed, because whatever Telltale decides I am sure it will be a story to remember...

    BUT PLEASE LET IT BE MOLLY!

  • I think the end of the second season will match the end of the first. Only now we finish as those guys on the hill, which Clem saw in after credits scene. Events will unfold simultaneously in both seasons, with some intersections. Perhaps we will meet familiar characters, such as Lily. i'm pretty sure about it.

    I've got the same thoughts as yours.

    So, I think that season two would be about another people who survived in zombie apocalypse. Episode 6 will starting in Macon. Do you remember that moment in drugstore, when Clementine goes to toilet, and walker was attacked her? Carley saved Lee, she shotted the walker who attacked Clem, but all walkers outside heared the shoot. In this moment big squad of soldiers was tried to break through the Macon. New main character would one of this soldiers (Twenty-eight-year-old man, I will call him Steve for example). A lot of soldiers of this squad are not survived that night at Macon. Get out of the city was only able to Steve and a few soldiers, after some time they found few civilian survivors, who joined to the Steve's group.
    All season will be about their adventures. In the end of season, almost all the people in the group dies, only Steve and another guy are survived. They lost everyone and everything, they haven't got food, water, weapons, ammo. They go on a deserted field near the Savannah. Suddenly in the distance they saw a small figure, near the lonely standing tree, and battered old car. Steve and his companion stopped not knowing what should they do....
