TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

posted by Yusuf Koroma on - last edited - Viewed by 24.3K 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."

    There may have been more males playing than females, but you didn't hear or see women going around saying "omg lee has that icky penis between his legs! i can't even relate to this! he has man problems, not women problems!1!"
    In the apocalypse, gender disappears, except by those that would use it to their advantage anyway. (The man who beats his wife becomes the tyrant leader of a predominantly male group and the woman who would sleep her way to the top would use sex to gain whatever she wanted and/or needed.)
    I think that so many people, myself included, want to play as a woman because we trust TTG to deliver a unique, relateable, and fun character, but don't want to play Lee again. I'd like to play someone quite different from Lee, and most of the characters we've seen thus far.

    Stop with the hyperbole. He never said that it would be impossible to relate to a female protagonist, he just said that it would be more difficult for most players (as most players are male)... I can back up this statement, I have attempted to play as a female character in several games (Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Skyrim, etc). While I had no problem with this, it was more difficult to relate to and I prefer playing as my own gender.

    If Telltale introduces a female protagonist, I won't really care, but it should be for reasons other than to be "different".

  • Top five plot threads from the first game I hope are resolved in some fashion or another for the sequel:

    1) Lilly's fate
    2) Kenny's fate
    3) Omid & Christa (including their baby)
    4) Vernon's betrayal & the fate of his group
    5) Lee.

    I was hesitant about mentioning Kenny, since knowing Robert Kirkman's pessimistic universe, chances are he was eaten. I have no desire to see Kenny as a zombie in season 2. Either show him alive or keep his whereabouts unknown, Telltale. Please.

    Lee, on the other hand, would present a great opportunity for Telltale to show the consequences of your final decision in the first game. I'd like to see at least one scene of a new gang of survivors coming across Lee in that abandoned jewellery store, either as a corpse (shot by Clem) or a handcuffed walker (left to die). If you chose to leave Lee behind in season 1, the player would then be given the option of having the survivors briefly about who he might have been before a NPC kills Lee, or have the PC shoot Lee immediately. Additionally, if you decided to cut off Lee's arm, one of the survivors could ask how he was able to handcuff himself to the radiator in the first place, a touching little callback to Clem's actions in the previous game.

    It'd be an awful scene one way or another, but it's definitely keeping in line with the bleak tone of episode 5.

  • Multi Endings are a must in S2.Hard choices should play more of a part in determing your groups end.None of choices in S1 really make any difference in anything.(Except maybe doug/carley)TWD is really good but this would take it to a whole new level.Instead of watching an interractive story you would be creating your own.No one says it has to be wildy different.Or the expected happy ending bc lets face it TWD isnt happy.

  • In my opinion LEE isnt dead at the end of my game bc i chopped his arm off and handcuffed police zombie to the chair not lee.Clem didnt shoot him.He is just weak from arm being servered/ loss o blood and the fact hes been going non stop 2 get 2 clem.I never seen him change or die.Whos to say he didnt wake up and start tryin 2 get back 2 clem realizing he did get the arm in time and that he was worn out from journey 2 clem without proper medical attention.Maybe far fetched but this is TWD.

    Lee is confirmed dead.

  • You know who might be an interesting PC for season 2? A priest. It would ultimately be up to you whether he holds on to his faith throughout the game, or succumbs to bitter pragmatism.

  • How about a convict who is on death row. A guard stayed and kept you locked up and fed. First episode during Ep 3 of the game. Walkers overun prisonand he lets you go. You and a woman you save end ep1 on a hill seeing Clem in the differance

    Sounds too much like Lee. Telltale will probably want to try something different.

    There actually is one in the comics, though I forget his name.
