The Walking Dead A New Frontier is the third installment to The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series.
Nerdist reviewed the game and gave it an overall positive feedback. The website approved the game and said that it is “inviting to newcomers who haven’t necessarily been following this excellent game series.”
The Walking Dead A New Frontier Storyline
In this game, a new family is introduced. The family is led by Javier, a former baseball player with a questionable past. He goes along his brother’s wife and his niece and nephew. He guides his family into post-apocalyptic survival.
The fans will surely get a feel of the newly introduced characters with the first two episodes of the game. Of course, they will soon bump into a familiar face which may be the players’ favorite character, Clementine.
Why You Should Play It
Fans would want to have to play Clementine – the girl who is the main recurring character in the game – right away. But players, fans and casual players alike, would soon discover that they are going to play the character of Javier. But you would not be disappointed because the story of Javier was fairly told. The first episode will immediately get your heart pounding as you encounter the first “los muertos”, or zombie, as they call it, in just the first episode of The Walking Dead A New Frontier. But, rest assured that Clementine will be back. And this is sufficient reason to compel old time players to play this series again.
Telltale has also introduced these new characters smoothly into the Walking Dead apocalypse story.
Another reason why you should play it is that the developer, Telltale, relies less on the shock factor and more on great writing. You will find yourself immediately invested in the characters’ lives, as Nerdist found out.
The game has also added flashbacks thus making the narrative much more compelling. The flashbacks help in tying together pieces of the story and shedding light to the characters’ pasts. These even make you want for more because there are cliffhangers at the end.
Mirror also said that this series has more cinematic effects with a more dynamic camera angle and bolder environment.
Big time fans can also choose to recreate the story they want based on the choices made in the previous seasons. You can either transfer your saved files or answer a few questions with the choices you made in the past seasons prior to the actual game play.
On the other hand, the game has some minor puzzles which are so easy to solve which may underestimate the skills of the player. Moreover, the game will lend a better experience for new players rather than those who have already played the two previous seasons. The reason is that the game does not invest much time and game play with Clementine. Old time players may also have a bias in picking choices that would be in favor of Clementine during the game play.
