During her mission set by the Charred Council, she came across some giant bizarre creatures, which are possibly the boss characters and we see her excellent combat skills with her long-range whip. It is safe to admit that Fury packs a better move set than her brothers considering their usability in combat and they are far more practical too.

Fraction of her gameplay footage also showcases surroundings from a ruined world and demonic entities that inherits it now. One other thing to notice here is that, the gameplay mechanics have improved to make all of her moves fluid smooth. At one point, she is also met by Horseman War and Death but what significance they bring to her story is still unclear. This might also be from a flashback sequence that is to serve as part of back-story for protagonist Fury to visit Earth.

Paying respect to a character from early phase of the series, we are then shown a dark present where survivors are still trying to live against all odds and facing emotional crack in every turn. Looking back at past, where Telltale's Walking Dead begin its journey with Lee Everett and a young Clem from Atlanta, The Final Season marches ahead to the current events. A lot of Clementine's attitude towards complicated situations and tough-as-nails will to survive came from her mentor Lee.

When the gang shows skepticism about little AJ on whether or not he can take care of himself, he showed them that he is more than capable. Soon, their safe heaven is threatened and hordes of walkers invade their new home.

Import Game Saves with Telltale's Walking Dead Story Builder

Developer Telltale Games introduces a brand-new interactive browser-based tool Story Builder to reconstruct Clementine's story.

When Telltale Games launched their episodic adventure game Telltale's The Walking Dead back in 2012, the gameplay experience was all centered on the choices player used to make and facing consequences for their decisions. Throughout the latter seasons the formula remained the same but it is very much possible that those saved choices were gone over time when a new console generation came. Recently, a web-based interactive tool called "Story Builder" is introduced to bring those moments back.

The original game was released in a time of PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360 consoles, which then later expanded to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One eventually. So, it is very much understandable if you have just lost saved game progress along the way and so, the developer launched this browser-based mechanism where you go back to some of the impactful moments from the series to create a distinctive version of Clementine to import in The Final Season.

When you are done forging your Clem, it is ready to be saved in the cloud using a Telltale Games account to access it later for The Final Season on their preferred platform. To catch up with series-defining moments and explore the roots once again, Telltale also offers you The Walking Dead Collection as a pre-order bonus on consoles if you happen to place your order before August 14, which includes all past three seasons, 400 Days DLC and the spin-off Michonne mini-series.

We would like to point out that importing the save file you created to the game is only limited to The Walking Dead: A New Frontier or The Walking Dead Collection. Also, importing saves are not cross-compatible between PS4 and Xbox One. However, both of these consoles will accept cloud saves from Android, iOS and PC. Therefore, saved progress from Season One or Season Two made in PS3 and Xbox 360 cannot be imported in any ways. For a detailed instruction, check out "Importing Saves Guide".

The Walking Dead: The Final Season is currently set to release on August 14 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with an expected port on Nintendo Switch at some later time. Since we are less than two weeks away from launch, you better hurry up and use the Story Builder to get a Clementine reflecting your choices and get a downloadable poster based on your results. We tried our luck and find out our Clem is a brutal one, which is pretty normal and a required quality in a zombie-apocalypse survivor.
