Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season Details

Just like all good things should come to an end, Telltale’s The Walking Dead is finally coming to a conclusion this year. Developer Telltale Games has done a fantastic fan-service by adapting creator Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Invincible)'s post-apocalyptic comic book series The Walking Dead from Image Comics into an episodic action-adventure franchise. It is one of Telltale’s most celebrated series much like the television adaptation of AMC’s zombie drama of the same name, which is currently airing its Season 8 on cable TV.

Six years have passed since the series began its journey with series protagonist Clementine and there has been only three seasons so far. She has grown from a little girl who just lost her parents to a seasoned survivor of a zombie apocalypse. Her journey in this walker-infested world is finally coming to an end that started with her guardian angel Lee Everett. We cannot say that she is also following Lee's path towards the end step by step as Melissa Hutchinson returns to voice her character.

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season was first announced back in 2017 during San Diego Comic Con and we only knew that the release is due to 2018. Although there was no official release date to begin with, our guess is that The Final Season may come out this summer or probably in the fall. The time might be closer to some holiday season of 2018. The Walking Dead: Season One was launched on April, Season Two and A New Frontier chose the month of December for their release.

Now, we all know that The Final Season marks the end of Clementine's story and fans are already wondering what would happen to her character then. It was revealed from PAX East panel 2018 that, the chapter will kick off right from the events of A New Frontier but there is a time jump in between. Clementine will be older and mature that she was back then and many things will not be the same as before. Because, the world has already gone to hell after a zombie apocalypse and no one is around to keep everything running.

A post-apocalyptic world means already the end of mankind and society, which only worsens as time passes. So, when the season will start, it will be from a much worse scenario that what we saw in Season Three. Little AJ is still on her care and chances are, she might get into a situation where the kid needs a lot of protecting. Clementine will come across plenty of new characters who would either help in her journey or become enemies. A dog named Rosie will be introduced who would at least make it through the first episode.

Since, Telltale’s The Walking Dead series is mostly scripted due to its episodic graphic adventure style. Any outcome players' face is from a series of preset choices set in the plot to unfold as they make progress. However, The Final Season is bringing a change to this gameplay mechanics for good. Any typical good zombie game genre should frequently put characters into battle zombies to keep things interesting. So, Telltale decided to include unscripted zombie fights to throw Clementine in danger and make this challenging.

Developers at Telltale Games have also noted that, considering an installment of a series that builds on death and despair, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier was a bit too colorful. By this, they are only hinting that The Final Season will go back to its root and adjust to a more worn-out color palette. AMC has already done it with logo for The Walking Dead TV series gradually following a more decomposing style after each season.

When developer Telltale Games introduced the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead with a new vision with Telltale’s The Walking Dead in 2012, people just fell in love with the unique storytelling way of their episodic graphic adventure. Over the years, we saw the character of Clementine grow from a young girl to the kickass grown up in "A New Frontier" and now, with Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season headed this way, we have to say good-bye to the series.

Till the day Clementine was rescued by Lee Everett from her house, she has been through a lot of dire situations in that world taken over by zombies and now, we will see her in action for one last time at the end of this year.

Telltale Games also released a key-art for the title for fans to get an exclusive first look. We can see series protagonist Clementine with the young boy AJ, she took in under her wings to protect at all cost. She is older now and is grizzled by the brutality this world inflicted upon her. If you look closely then you will notice that the key-art above strikes a resemblance with the one released for the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead with Lee and Clementine on it.

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season is set to release later in 2018 with no fixed date yet and a first look of the game will be revealed on April 6 at PAX East panel. It was during last year's San Diego Comic Con, when Telltale had announced for a planned fourth season which will be the last one and will draw conclusion to Clementine's story. We must admit that it is really hard seeing such a great franchise finally ending but even harder to see a character like Clementine go.

Batman: The Enemy Within Have Two Different Endings

One thing fans of Telltale Games would agree without a doubt is that the developer has re-invented if not mastered the point-and-click adventure games of modern times and with each new releases, they prove it time after time. The studio did a great job tinkering with the established folklore of DC Comics' most iconic hero Batman in Batman: The Telltale Series in 2016 and the sequel Batman: The Enemy Within in 2017.

Batman: The Enemy Within Have Two Different Endings

Batman: The Enemy Within is the second season of Telltale's attempt of re-creating the legends of The Dark Knight for gamers. The first season and the already released episodes of season two is doing exceptionally well so far. We all are now waiting for the season finale and it is going to be released on March 27, drawing conclusion to another thrilling chapter of Bruce Wayne/ Batman trying to save Gotham City from the rampant criminal society.

RELATED: Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Five Release Date

The developers and studio is very excited about the final episode as it just doesn't give it a closure but also because this one is the greatest piece of content they have created for the series till date. Telltale's stories are different than any of the stories from DC Universe as they take a unique dig at the saga and the latest twist they added to the list is to create their own version of The Joker.

The Pact Associates

When he was first discovered by Bruce Wayne in Arkham Asylum as a former patient named John Doe. He didn't become the Clown Prince of Crime back then but his past was anything but clouded. However, he had a deep admiration for Bruce Wayne and just wanted to be his best friend more than anything. He even introduced Bruce to The Pact, a small gang of super-criminals consisting Bane, Harley Quinn and Mr. Freeze.

Just because John Doe was way far from becoming The Joker at that point, many actually started rooting for him. It was a very bold move from Telltale to even pitch the idea of this pale skinned and green haired individual having any sort of friendly relationship with Bruce Wayne because of many Batman fans would start ranting about it immediately but all things worked out fine in the end. Instead of beating him up and taking him back to Arkham, players tried to guide him through Bruce's character.

Since one of the nature of episodic graphic adventure games are the ending and many other aspects of a game changes depending on your actions, your approach towards John Doe in The Enemy Within will shape up his character in the endgame. Whether or not you want him to be Harley's boyfriend or bring down his criminal endeavors, it's all up to you. The way you treat him will shape The Joker of tomorrow.

Vigilante or Villain?

The finale episode will reach to a certain point with every loose ends and John Doe will either transform into a Vigilante or Villain. If he turns out evil, then you already know that he is destined to become Batman’s arch-nemesis. The end of their friendship will set him nuts and he will wreck havoc on Gotham. Although, The Joker becoming a vigilante would like to team-up with Batman to eradicate all crime from the city.

We better not go any deep with this than we did, because the final episode is dropping within two weeks and you probably wouldn't like the story to be spoiled. You should play the episode titled "Same Stitch" when it is finally released for Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and mobile devices on March 27 to find out the epic conclusion yourself. The fifth episode contains three and a half hours worth of content and with a few variations of outcomes, it can be even longer.

The Phantom Militia has the power of Echo, which allows you to play the card many times in the same turn depending on how much mana you are packing and this one is one of the many from the set. Though Rush card Militia Commander cannot attack the opponent's hero like Charge cards, they will attack other minions on a same turn. Before the expansion goes live, claim three card packs and a random Class legendary card for free just by logging into the game.




It also launches a single-player experience called Monster Hunts and it will start within two weeks of the release of the expansion.

Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Five Release Date

Developer Telltale Games have done a great job recreating the legends of Batman with inspiration taken from the source materials of DC Comics and adapted a new version of the character where the players build their own saga as they progress further in each episode of the game. Telltale has officially announced the release date for the fifth and final episode of Batman: The Enemy Within titled "Same Stitch".

As you know that previously made choices will shape-up things for you in Batman: The Enemy Within, a huge turn-of-event awaits the finale depends on how you reaped your steps in the past episodes. We are talking about a twist of the character John Doe, who is destined to become Batman's arch-nemesis The Joker. Based on your actions in prior episodes, John Doe will evolve and whether or not he becomes a problem for Bruce Wayne still remains a question.

We are dropping the official episode description of Batman: The Enemy Within's Season Finale below for you to take a look at.

"What would you choose: a friend whose unhinged approach to justice turns your allies against you, or a sworn enemy who will stop at nothing to see you suffer as your city burns? Based on the relationship you’ve built with John Doe, you'll see one of two very different stories play out. So what’ll it be, Bruce: friend...or foe?"

We believe, John Doe will either become the maniacal Clown Prince of Crime we know him to be or an unlikely ally for Batman/Bruce Wayne that we have never seen before. Telltale already planned out two different ending for the story and developed over 4,500 lines of dialogue for 38 characters from the episode. Amanda Waller of the Agency, Bane, Harley Quinn and Mr. Freeze may appear in supporting role of the story as well.

Season Finale of Batman: The Enemy Within, "Same Stitch" will be out on March 27, to play on Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and mobile devices. With that, Telltale's second season of episodic point-and-click graphic adventure based on The Dark Knight will come to an end. Judging by the very positive reception from the fans, Batman: The Telltale Series is much likely to return with a third season, where we will see the Caped Crusader in more actions and tackle more bad guys.

Fortnite: Battle Royale for Mobile Announced

From 2017, battle royale has become such a trend that almost all major developers are either including or considering introducing a battle royale mode to their video games. One of the games that truly redefined the genre was third person last-man-standing shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds from last year. The only other game that gave PUBG any type of competition was co-op sandbox survival Fortnite's standalone Battle Royale mode.

Even though Fortnite: Battle Royale has done nothing that matches the grade where PUBG has reached, it sure has risen to popularity in comparison to other games like H1Z1: King of the Kill, Last Man Standing and The Culling. Also, they are the ones who introduced their game made it to the consoles before PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and since they did it first, PUBG developer Bluehole couldn't take any legal action.

Fortnite: Battle Royale's developer Epic Games didn't just stop after entering the console world. In fact, they just confirmed that they are bringing the game to mobile devices. Fortnite will soon be available on iOS phones and tablets with keeping content and gameplay exactly same as PC and console versions. Android support is likely to arrive shortly within the next few months. Players who are eager to enjoy the game on their mobiles can sign up for the upcoming iOS invite event on Monday.

Epic Games also added that cross play support for Fortnite: Battle Royale on iOS devices will be available as well. That means whether you and your squad are either on iOS, Mac, PC or PlayStation 4, you can all enjoy the experience of battle royale together. While Android debut of the game is still pending, players on Xbox One are not included in this cross play list. This might have something to do with Sony's decision for not joining cross-platform play initiative.

With their fellow business rival Bluehole already bringing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for mobile, it was about time that Epic Games made their right move. Plus, this is an appropriate idea in current times, because when game like Minecraft was ported to mobile, it just gained millions of new players. Many people may think of it as attending to another commercial agenda but if done right, the initiative can be a successor to many upcoming hit-franchises.

Erik Killmonger Enters Marvel: Contest of Champions

As the whole world is eagerly waiting for the premiere of the live-action Black Panther movie that debutes King T’Challa of Wakanda starring actor Chadwick Boseman (Captain America: Civil War, Gods of Egypt) in the titular lead role, let's not forget about the film's primary antagonist Erik Killmonger, portrayed by Michael B. Jordan (Creed, The Wire). He finally steps into Marvel: Contest of Champions to claim his rightful place.

For long, Erik Killmonger has been an arch-nemesis for one of Marvel's most prominent black superhero, Black Panther. Their rivalry eventually found its way to the silver screen with the release of the movie and his arrival to the Marvel Cinematic Universe calls for a celebration. So, developer Kabam's lead character artist Gene Campbell and game designer Piero Herrera were all game for that.

RELATED: The Sentry Enters Marvel: Contest of Champions

While Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan's character goes into clash into theaters, Erik Killmonger follows his arch-enemy from the lands of Wakanda to The Collector's cosmic Battlerealm of Champions. Just like the studio has paid keen attention to details for the character and its design, Contest of Champions developers also put the same level of effort in the game to do justice to Killmonger for bringing him into the arena.




The greatest Champions the universe could offer, The Collector has amassed them all and Erik Killmonger is one of his newest collections. He brings the best defensive abilities on the table if you play offense with him. He receives Indestructible Charges when a Special 2 Attack is activated and it lets him resist a Special 3 Attack from his adversary without breaking a sweat or taking damage.

His character can shrug off enemy attacks during a block using his Counterpunch Charges and begin performing his very own combo. This attack tactics is very effective against Stun Immune opponents of Battlerealm. Erik Killmonger is most effective on a fight with the company of Black Panther (Civil War), The Void and Winter Soldier. These combinations will grant you Regeneration and help you get True Strike pretty easily, the latter of which is quite helpful against Champions like Spider-Man.

A fighting game available to play on Android and iOS devices from Kabam, Marvel: Contest of Champions is free-to-play for all. We have high hopes for Marvel StudiosBlack Panther that is releasing worldwide this weekend and it provided a wonderful opportunity for the developers to bring new cinematic incursions of the popular Marvel character.
