TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

posted by Yusuf Koroma on - last edited - Viewed by 16.7K 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."

  • @slimymeteor said: 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.

    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....

  • heres my idea I have and idea for Episode 1 Season 2

    Charecters:
    Ian- Main
    Donald-Ian Brother
    Ryan’s Family- One Family Ian finds at the school
    David’s Family- another Family Ian finds at the school their daughter was bitten.
    Michael- The robber Ian and his brother confront
    Michael jr. –The son of the robber
    The Main character is a guy named Ian. He lives in Savannah and is a pre-med student and learns from doctors at The Savannah Hospital. Ian usually studies from the veteran doctors and helps cancer patients since his father had suffered from this Diseases at one time.(Maybe he helps Vernon and his group) The infection starts while Ian is at the hospital he see that there have been "riots" in Savannah. He scared for his girlfriend so he leaves the hospital and heads for the parking lot. This is when he encounters a figure eating a woman on the floor. He goes to investigate, and this initiates a zombie fighting scene he runs to his car and the zombie bangs on the window and he kills it using his car. He drives to his apartment where his girlfriend is he tells her they have to go to his dads house since he lives in the country side but she will not go without her sister so they head to Savannah Middle School to pick her up. They go inside to get her sister and meet two families. They're desperate and their daughter has been bitten(1st Decision you choose to leave her or take her with you to you dads house) However after whatever choice you make your Girlfriend say that she has to get her parents and will meet you at your dads house so you give her they keys and leave with the family then you arrive at your dads house you show the family their room.(Depending on your choice it could lead to the death of a character). The Next day your father tells you and your brother to go check on the neighbors when we get in they're we see that there is a man robbing the house this leads to a stand off the man is obviously delusional(Second choice were you choose to kill this man or your brother does it) Whoever kills him we find that there was a child there and he sees either Ian or His Brother Kill his father(Third choice is ether leave the kid or take him with you) We then head back to the house. We see the characters huddled around Ian's fathers TV and its News about what is happening in savannah we see zombies in the background the camera drops the camera and runs away as the news reporter is eaten. Then the Tv shows that its an emergency evacuation and Tells all viewers to head to Atlanta. Our Group talks telling how going to another big city is stupid and that they should just hold up in Ian’s fathers house. The Episode ends with Ian looking out the window and seeing Savannah in the distance.
