The Walking Dead In the Pines trailer

It’s no secret that The Walking Dead Season 2 is off to a great start. The series is only two episodes in, and it’s getting loads of praise from critics and fans. A new trailer has been released showcasing the series so far, showing clips from the first two episodes and the various accolades the game received. The true star of this trailer isn’t Clementine or the zombies, but the beautifully emotional song that begins to play halfway through.

Fans of the game will no doubt recognize the tune, as it played during the credits of Episode 2. The song in question is “In the Pines”, a traditional American folk song dating back to the 1870s. The rendition heard in the game/trailer was arranged by Jared Emerson-Johnson, the long-time Telltale composer, and sung by Janel Drewis, who works at Telltale as an animator. The track is currently available for free, and you can download it from Bandcamp here.


The Walking Dead Season 2: A House Divided review (XBLA DLC)

The Walking Dead Season 2 was developed and published by Telltale Games. It was released March 5, 2014 for $4.99.


So far, The Walking Dead Season 2 has been off to a slow start. The first episode spent a lot of time separating itself from the original series, while setting the stage for the current one. It was a lot of build-up that ultimately had little immediate payoff.  Thankfully Episode 2: A House Divided picks up right where the last left off, allowing the story to kick itself into full gear. We finally see the direction the series is going, as Clementine’s new group is forced to deal with a mysterious new villain, Carver. Telltale delivers the experience we’ve come to expect from The Walking Dead - one full of tough choices, rough consequences, and a good helping of zombie slaughter.

the walking deadbridge

The second episode of The Walking Dead Season 2 was already announced to be coming this week, but now we have an exact date. You can get your hands on Episode 2: A House Divided on March 5, which just so happens to be tomorrow. The episode will continue the adventures of Clementine and her new group as they face a danger worse than zombies. You can check out the trailer for the episode here, which gives you the first look at the series’ first villain, Carver. The episode will be available for $4.99 or free for season pass holders.


The Walking Dead Season 2: A House Divided coming next week

It’s been a while since the premiere of Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2 in December, but the wait for more will be over very soon. The second episode of the series, A House Divided, will be available next week. The exact date for XBLA hasn’t been announced, but should be confirmed soon by Telltale. The episode’s trailer has emerged as well, showing the people and places you can expect to see on Clementine’s continued adventures through the zombie apocalypse. The episode will cost $4.99, and will be free for season pass holders.


The Walking Dead’s next episode is ‘just around the corner’


Earlier this week, Telltale Games took to Twitter to let its legions of fans know that the second episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two is ‘just around the corner.’ The Walking Dead: Season One, which was an immensely popular success, returned for Season Two on December 17.

Those of you who have played the first episode of Season Two already know that the current season is centered around Clementine. She was a major character in Season One, and this time around she is a little older and a lot wiser. The accompanying image that was in Telltale’s tweet gives you a good sense that we’re no longer dealing with the shy naive little girl from Georgia.  It’s quite astonishing the quality of work that has been released from Telltale Games of late and Season Two looks to be more of the same.

Telltale announces two new games


During the VGX awards this past weekend, Telltale Games revealed two brand new episodic game series. One announcement confirmed a rumor, while another is a bit of a surprise.

Telltale revealed it is in fact working on a Game of Thrones series in partnership with HBO. The game will take its inspiration from the television series, which is based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series. Players will be thrown into the action and politics of Westeros, having the power to make choices that will impact the narrative.

Telltale also announced that it will be collaborating with Gearbox Software to make Tales from Borderlands, a spin-off series set in the universe of the popular Borderlands franchise. Despite being part of a series known for shooting and looting, Telltale’s signature storytelling will be front and center. Taking place on Pandora, the game will feature a cast of familiar faces as well as brand new characters.

Both games will be coming in 2014. With these games, plus The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, it’s obvious next year is going to be big for both Telltale and its fans. You can watch the teaser trailers for both games after the jump.

Rumor: Telltale developing Game of Thrones game

game_of_thronesTelltale Games is known for making great video game adaptations out of existing franchises, and a new rumor suggests the studio will be taking on yet another huge property. Multiple sources have told IGN that Telltale will be developing a game based off of the George R.R. Martin-created Game of Thrones. It is not clear at this time whether the game will be based on the HBO series or A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series. When IGN reached out Telltale, they received the following response from SVP of Publishing Steve Allison:

“We get these sorts of rumors about what we could be working on next cropping up all the time. Officially we have no comment.”

With more episodes of The Wolf Among Us and a second season of The Walking Dead on the way, it will probably be a while before we see Telltale’s next game whether this rumor is true or not. Is Game of Thrones one of the “dream IPs” Telltale is working on? Only time will tell.

Telltale Games working on a number of “dream IP” licenses

Telltale Games

In a recent Reddit AMA, the founders of Telltale Games, Dan Connors and Kevin Bruner, fielded questions about current and upcoming Telltale projects, their creative process, Valve’s SteamOS/SteamMachines, Linux gaming in general and developing for consoles. The line of questioning, however, that received the most traction and attention, focused on what IP’s Telltale should tackle in the future. Redditor dar343 asked what their top IP of choice would be, adding, “Disregard Star Wars, please makr [sic] Firefly.”

Kevin Bruner replied, noting that a Star Wars Telltale game would make him “VERY happy,” and hinted at an upcoming IP that hits all of his favorites. Later, Dan Connors hinted working on a few licenses that definitely fall into their “dream IP scenario.” What those dream IP’s could be is as much a mystery to us as it is to anyone outside Telltale, but there are certainly a few very exciting prospects that could fit very well with Telltale’s distinct gameplay style. A number of Redditors clamored for an Indiana Jones game, while even X-Files and Sherlock Holmes received a nod or two. DirtyKoala even suggested The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The top suggestion, though, was a continuation of Joss Whedon’s sci-fi/western classic, Firefly.

Walking Dead Season 2 announcement coming tomorrow


Players have been waiting for more of Telltale’s The Walking Dead ever since the first season ended. Not much is known about Season 2, but that may change as soon as tomorrow. Today Telltale tweeted “Keep your hair short…” which is a quote from the first season, along with the teaser above. The image of Clementine’s hat suggests she will be in Season 2, which all but confirms what Telltale revealed at Comic-con about her return. We hope tomorrow afternoon brings good news about the next installment in the series; after all, we did vote Season 1 one of the best XBLA games of all time.
