The Walking Dead: Season Two kicks off December 17

Steam product page reveals launch date for second season of point-and-click adventure series.

The Walking Dead: Season Two will kick off on December 17, according to the game's product page in the Steam database. We've reached out to developer Telltale Games to confirm the date.

Telltale Games previously announced that episode one for The Walking Dead: Season Two would be available to download before Christmas (December 25). Subsequent episodes will be available 4-6 weeks apart. Episodes will launch first on PC/Mac, before coming to consoles and iOS later.

In The Walking Dead: Season Two, based on Robert Kirkman's comic book series, you play as orphan Clementine. The choices you made during the critically acclaimed first season will carry over to season two.

In season two, as Clementine you'll struggle against the undead and other characters through chapters that will test your morals, according to Telltale.

Like the first season of The Walking Dead, Season Two will span five episodes released digitally beginning this year and running through 2014. Players can buy all five episodes at once for $22.50, a savings of 10 percent over the cost of purchasing each chapter individually.

More than 21 million episodes of The Walking Dead have been sold so far. The San Rafael, California-based developer is also currently working on The Wolf Among Us, an episodic series based on the Fables comics.

Telltale Games also created point-and-click adventure games based on Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, and Wallace and Gromit.

The Only Game I'm Interested in gets the lowest score...  Figures.  As Laggy as Season 1 was on the Vita, It was cool to play in Bed with the lights out.

I'd much rather that this series was an animated series considering the gameplay is really dull.

Hmmmm, I didn't care for Clem. Not sure I want to play as her. I know people loved her but I just didn't.

I'll just wait until all of the episodes are out, this the type of game you can't wait for a new one to be released, you need to play them all in a row without huge waits in between.

I like episodic gaming. It gives me something to look forward to each month.

I never really understood the concept of holding out the episodes in a monthly fashion. I mean if they have already completed the episodes and all that and they just want to hold out that ain't right. Now if the next episode is not yet completly done that's one thing. A friend brought this up to me some time ago and he had a point.

Just wanted to ask, I can't afford Xbox live until I get a better job or Tesco's decide to employ me for more than 3 days a week, so it will be sold on a disc rather than just a download right ??

You buy the "season pass" which gives you all the content unless they release actual DLC like 500 (or 200 or w/e) days

I played Season One on the X360 when it first came out & that was an amazing game. I sooo can't wait to play Season Two when it comes out here in London. I'm really looking forward to it already !!

yes. Do you buy the game at full price then download all the episodes one by one? or does the game come will all the episodes.

Well, for PC you pay $25 (I think) and you get all the episodes (when they are released)

What a good way to end the year. Reminds me that I still haven't played 400 Days yet, though.

With regards to adventure games, Telltale have pretty much become the LucasArts of the current era. Nothing revolutionary, but they spin a good yarn and their adventures are always good fun.

I really enjoyed the first season.  One question though-  


Will in-game choices actually affect game play?  Because they certainly didn't the first time around.

Going to wait until the season is complete. 


I did that with season 1 and ordered the collector's edition with a sweet book based on the comics.

400days wasnt much to be honest, you could buy it to support them but it was really disappointing to me. Its basically equivalent to movie trailer or 1/10th of a demo : ) 

just watch a youtube video of it if there is one

The game is all about the stroyline; the gameplay will be point and click irregardless of decisions made.

@RicanV "sweet book based on the comics." 

*first 50 issues of the comics.

@RicanV Not a bad plan. It also makes it less frustrating when they don't announce the additional chapters for months :)

They said the choices you make in 400 days will have impact on the main story line. nonetheless 400 days was a much shorter game than the regular ones we all know.
