Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman today officially announced The Walking Dead: Season Two, due out later this year on PC/Mac, before coming to consoles and iOS later.
The second season in Telltale Games' acclaimed adventure game series will continue the story of the orphaned girl Clementine. Gamers will play as Clementine as they struggle against the undead and each other through chapters that will test players morals, according to Telltale.
"The terrifying nature of Robert Kirkman's world has allowed Telltale to push the boundaries of interactive drama in video games to a place that has had fans anxious to know what will happen next in this series," Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors said in a statement.
According to Connors, playing as Clementine will challenge players' expectations for how to survive in a world where "no one can be trusted."
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.
Telltale Games also announced a $30 Game of the Year Edition for the first season of The Walking Dead. Available in North America for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC at retail, the bundle will include all five episodes, the 400 Days expansion, a copy of the game's musical score, and a behind-the-scenes video.
More than 21 million episodes of The Walking Dead have been sold so far, Telltale Games said. 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.
Separately, AMC today renewed The Walking Dead TV show for a fifth season. It is developed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) and is also based on Kirkman's comic book series.
