Clementine will return in The Walking Dead season 2

Major character from The Walking Dead's first season "will definitely be a part of" the game's upcoming second season, says Telltale.

by

Telltale has confirmed that one its main characters in the Walking Dead game, Clementine, will be returning for the second season.

Speaking at a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con (reported by IGN), Telltale said that Clementine "will definitely be a part of" The Walking Dead's upcoming second season.

Telltale is aiming to release the first chapter of its second season of The Walking Dead later this year.

Elsewhere in the panel, Telltale also said the fate of accompanying character Kenny "will be explored." A teaser image of what appeared to be Clementine sitting in the rain next to another child was also shown, adds IGN.

Clementine is a young girl found by protagonist Lee Everett near the start of season one's five episodes, and she accompanies Everett throughout the rest of the chapters.

Telltale also said that season two of The Walking Dead would launch on the Vita on the same day as other platforms, unlike the delay with season one.

Telltale recently released The Walking Dead: 400 Days, an additional chapter designed to bridge the gap between seasons one and two. GameSpot awarded the new chapter a score of 9.0 in its review.

If Lee does come back he is only going to come back for the people that chose to spare him as a zombie. The people that killed him will not see him as a zombie. Your choices will affect season 2.

I fail to see why this is news, it wouldn't make sense to shelf Clem aside after last season's semi-cliffhanger.

I know it's been awhile, but definitely a spoiler headline. The Steam sale just ended and a lot of people just got the game for the first time.

Edit: Actually just saw thermalmotion's comment and it proves my point.

Nice!

I just finished playing the game after finally getting it on the steam sale. Glad I did, it was pretty good.

I'm debating whether or not if I want to go through another season of drab gameplay for the sake of a compelling story.  Don't get me wrong, I liked the first season, but that was before playing State of Decay (SOD).  Now, the first season seems like a waste of space while I find myself playing SOD over and over again.  I hope the gameplay from the first season get addressed for the second.

One of the main characters from season 1 will be returning this fall. Stay tuned to find out who. There fixed it for you!

I think she will return but it would be mad late in the season. hopefully not but it seems like that's what developers like to do now days

Isn't that a bit of a spoiler for those who didn't play the entire seasons?

Maybe not a good thing. In my head she escaped, and found safety "with a nice boy" and grew up to be a princess on a Swiss family Robinson type island. Her being in Season 2 means, not only will she [mostly likely] die, but I'll have to stab/ shoot her in the face... 


like 5 times...


 just to be sure. 


Seriously, this game hasn't been full of hope /optimism so I liked ended her story in my head.

I want Lee back dammit.

I thought it was pretty obvious she would be returning. It wouldn't make sense for her not to the way the first season ended. I'm glad it's official that we will be seeing her. Perhaps she won't be the center of attention, for a while at least, what with all the other new characters. And that's nice they'll explain what went down with Kenny, but I kind of wish they would have kept that part secret, oh well.

Well, having just started the first season, I guess I can rule out one ending...

I think the main character of Season 2 should be someone you create - that would be cool.

Is the video game in the same universe as the TV series?

@YesSheWill  

You are comparing two vastly different games.  Walking Dead will never be like SOD.  It is not a shooter.  It is not a strategy game.  It is not a survival game.  It IS a narrative driven game that forces you to make hard choices that alter the course of the plot..   SOD has no narrative.  There are no difficult choices that affect the plot down the road.  SOD is a good survival game.  So if you are hoping that the Season 2 gameplay turns into SOD, go piss off and play SOD or Dead Island.

@fredwv he might be in the next season, zombified of course. maybe clem would have to kill him.

@2w-sephiroth I finished it this saturday and I completely agree with you, although my ending let me sad. lol

@Apastron The "endings" are not really diverse at all...it all mostly merges in the end...

@Mraou I don't know...a big part of the enjoyment of Season 1 for me was getting to know Lee and his past. With a char you create there's nothing there to discover.

korvus

@Pilgrim117 Yep, it takes place before the show though (at least Season 1). Some characters you'll recognise from the Tv show (and others from the comics) but most of the main characters are new (you won't be playing as Rick or anything like that...)

@ewjiml You have fallen victim to your own assumptions.  I made it clear that I own both SOD and The Walking Dead season one, so I know how they differ.  I also know what they have in common.  They are both video games.  Video games most valuable trait will always be gameplay.  Sure, the story is important.  But once you made it through the game, there has to be a reason to pick it up and play it again.  The Walking Dead video game uses choices to give it replay value, but for those who played through the entire first season,  they know that your choices do not have any real bearings on the main course of the story.  For example, the people that you try to save end up dying anyway, or running off for that matter.  Also, I never said that The Walking Dead game had to copy SOD gameplay.  All, I said was that its gameplay needed to improve.  Finally, my comment was my opinion, so if you can not respect that then you are the one that needs to piss off.

na because then none of the characters will mention you by name. And I don't know, that would just annoy me. but that is my option

@Korvus85 @Pilgrim117 Activision holds the rights to crappy games based on the TV series. Telltale's universe is the same as the one in the comics, not the TV series

Alverez

@Korvus85 @Pilgrim117 Actually the game takes its continuity, as well as its art style,  from the comic books, not the tv series.

@YesSheWill  you're an idiot for comparing the two

@Mraou It was your decision on his story; to me that's different =)

@hydrobeast I didn't even say Jesse or Jessie ... And Jordan is still spelt the same.

yes but there is now unisex name spelling for example Jesse-male and Jessie-Female

@Korvus85 @hydrobeast My reply didn't show up >.> Anyway, I said 'it kind of was your story, since you controlled what Lee says and does and not everyone's experiences were the same"

@hydrobeast You could have a unisex name, like "Jordan, Alex or Jamie" or something.

korvus

@hydrobeast You could be allowed to choose from a list of names....not ideal but at least you'd have voice when characters say your name...still prefer the way they've done Season 1. It wasn't your story, it was Lee's story and I'm ok with it =) Not every game needs to be about you ^_^

korvus

@Darth_Kane Matter of perspective, I guess. The fact that some characters only appear on the comics and others only on the show doesn't make it 2 different universes for me...I see it as the same universe with slightly different story. Just like I don't see the old Batman games to be in a different universe as the Arkham ones...

@punksterdaddy I have to say I was never attracted to comics. I always watch the TV adaptation instead. Books over movies any day of the week, but with comics I lose patience early. A "square" with a BANG!! or a shocked look is just boring for me. With TWD I'm not minding too much, but I'm not sure if it's because I got the first 100 issues in one go XD

@Alverez @Korvus85 @punksterdaddy 

Yes I know what you mean but that is what I prefer.

When I first began reading them, they were dull as sh!te... but by the end, I understood that this is what was needed or you just wouldn't care who lived, died or what would happen next.

It allows time for story structure and building character within the story.

I am now addicted to them, so much so that I have to order them on line because I just can't get them where I live. lol. Sad Panda.

The drawback though.... when it's on television, you know what is coming. 

At least the show is good in it's own merits though or I just wouldn't bother.

You should try giving them a read again? They really are good.

@Korvus85 @punksterdaddy The comic progresses reaaaally slowly. Too slow for my liking. One issue every month = Alverez being a sad panda.

@punksterdaddy Wow, 10 years? Didn't think it was that long. I'll read the rest of the article now. Thanks ^_^

@punksterdaddy Seems interesting, I'll take a look; thanks! =D I'm still trying to catch up on the comics (started a while ago). Is it done or still coming out?

@Korvus85 @Alverez 

Korvus85 is correct, it is the same universe. (i.e. Glenn appeared in the first few episodes.)

Alverez is correct in that the game takes things like the art from the Graphic Novels.

It is the EXACT same world, not alternate. Check out the mini documentary from the co-creator of both, Robert Kirkman. Where this is explained.

korvus
korvus

@Alverez True, I just assume Pilgrim watches the show only. And since there's nothing in the game that contradicts the show (so far) I didn't see any harm in it XD

Alverez
Alverez

@Korvus85 @Alverez Haha. yeah. Technically though the show is like an alternate reality to the comic. We'll never see Daryl Dixon in this game series. Unless he's the alternate "I never joined Rick Grimes and am still traveling around with Merle being a redneck Jedi" version. xD

korvus
korvus

@Alverez He asked if it took place in the same universe, which it does. Where it draws its inspiration from, that's a different question altogether =)
