Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode Three Release Date

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season will be returning next month with episode three, from Skybound Games.

When Telltale Games announced to shut down back in September, the future of Telltale's Walking Dead along with few of their fan-favorite titles became uncertain but then Skybound Games came forward to finish Clementine's story during the zombie apocalypse.

By the time they released the second episode, the studio was in a sudden near-closure but Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible)'s production company took over the Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season project and start working on the remaining episodes from last month.

Currently scheduled for a release window of January 15, 2019, Skybound Games released a new trailer for upcoming third episode of the game titled "Broken Toys".

The trailer starts with a voice over from Lee Everett, the guardian angel who found little Clem and protected her from all odds as long as he could. Then she reflects on how she made it this far and now is in the same position of Lee, taking care of young AJ.

After surviving on the road for a while, Clem and AJ finally finds an abandoned schoolhouse where they met with a group of other kids but got kicked out later. In the last episode, Suffer the Children, she reunites with Lilly from season one and with that, her fight for survival continues.

After starting their journey back in 2012 with season one, Telltale's Walking Dead as set a new standard for zombie games within the gaming community where players choices mattered and the developers went on to release three more seasons.

Players have witnessed the young girl becoming a toughened survivor in a post-apocalyptic world over the three season's period where she grew up, created bonds, took some heart-breaking decisions and now her story has finally come to an end.

Although no one is ready yet to say goodbye to Clementine, we still are heading towards an inevitable series finale. Last month, major Telltale Games titles were removed from Steam even though it remained on GOG, PlayStation Store and Xbox Marketplace.

Skybound assured that previous seasons and new episodes are back on "almost" all platforms and by the launch of episode 3, the rest will be fixed as well. Those who already bought the entire season of The Walking Dead: The Final Season in advance will also get access to the upcoming episodes.

Resident Evil 2 Remake May Have Micro-Transactions

Recently revealed ESRB rating for Resident Evil 2 Remake has finally confirmed that the game will use micro-transactions.

As we are heading closer to January 25, 2019, the hype only intensifies even more for the upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake to arrive on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide from developer/publisher Capcom.

We saw multiple screenshots, gameplay walkthrough and trailers that gave us chills with each new revealed detail. The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) rating for the game has also arrived and it confirms that there will be some form of micro-transactions as well.

RE2 Remake is now officially been rated Mature by ESRB for the inclusion of "Blood and Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language", which of course is no surprise to the fan-base or the players as we already witnessed some gory nastiness in already released media.

The use of micro-transactions however is quite new for everyone in a RE title and since there was no details other than the mention of "In-Game Purchases", we certainly don't know what the game will offer players within the game.

Earlier, Capcom confirmed that players would be able to unlock original classic costumes for Claire and Leon for free. Even bonus missions like HUNK and Tofu is added within the base game and not as an additional downloadable content.

Hopefully, the mention of in-game purchase on the rating is cosmetic items for costumes and weapon skins that wouldn't impact the gameplay in any manner and thus, players will not have to spend more bucks to gain gameplay advantage or unlock extra playable content.

After the developer initially confirming working on Resident Evil 2 Remake back in 2015, it took three more years to have it revealed at E3 2018. Considered as one of the best entries in the entire series, fans have been petitioning for a remake for years and it is finally happening.

Not only does the studio provides a complete graphical overhaul for the title with their revolutionary RE Engine, the franchise is going back to its roots of survival horror in a major way that totally suits its growing legacy and paving ways for more remakes of classic titles.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Ada Wong Images

Capcom recently releases new batch of screenshots from Resident Evil 2 Remake project, showcasing Ada Wong.

We are only months from Capcom's long-awaited upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake to drop on January 25, 2019 worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One after years of waiting for it to finally come out.

As you eagerly wait for the title to release, a fresh batch of new screenshots from the game has been revealed featuring the redesigned character of Ada Wong, some more of Claire and Leon, the unstoppable tyrant Mr. X and some more monstrosities.

The remake is an overall improvement of the classic from 1998 and development team was careful when modeling these fan-favorite characters and creatures for the project. The re-modeled Ada Wong is a great example of how well the job is done so far.

Though not a main protagonist like street-savvy college student Claire Redfield and rookie RPD cop Leon S. Kennedy, Ada has an important role to play amidst the zombie apocalypse in Raccoon City and at a certain point she becomes a playable character as well.

Many Resident Evil 2 fans were worried that the studio might change Ada Wong's iconic red dress for the remake but they actually had multiple character redesigns for the game. Even Leon and Claire's looks has been reworked a little bit while keeping certain aspects of original outfits retained.

Capcom’s RE Engine has definitely accomplished some great wonders bringing RE2 to life and the visual enhancement of the remake project surpasses what they did with it in Resident Evil 7 a hundred miles in terms of graphics.

The final set of stills has Leon has an encounter with a shotgun-wielding civilian, who most likely to be the Kendo Gun Shop owner, Robert Kendo that he come across at an early point of the game right before he meets his fate to the rabid undeads of the outbreak.

Then a trip to the sewers has him face with a heavily mutated William Birkin that resembles to nothing like a person anymore with only exception of a hand. The first two shots of Birkin had us believed it is a crocodile-human hybrid of some sorts.

Just like Ada from Leon's campaign, young Sherry Birkin from Claire's story will also be playable for a brief time. We also get our first good look at Mr. X and a G-Virus-induced William Birkin, who has mutated to an even reformed stage, which is nearly beyond recognition.

Apparently, the Tyrant monster is chasing Claire and Sherry inside the Raccoon City police station, something that is derived from the original sequel of Resident Evil. To make things worse for Claire, there is also a Licker alongside the Tyrant.

With players hyped about the game all around the world, Capcom is trying their best to deliver a solid game that they carefully worked on for so long. We heard rumor of a playable demo to be out in December and that will give us an idea of the gameplay mechanics too.

Resident Evil 2 is a timeless horror classic that is still relevant and by honoring the survival horror essence, it has brought the series back on the spotlight once again. With all the potential it holds, the title can easily become one of the biggest games of 2019.

Telltale Games Removed From Steam

Telltale Games is in the process of shutting down as titles like Back to the Future and The Walking Dead are being removed from Steam.

Back in September, developer/publisher studio Telltale Games officially declared that they are officially going out of business after firing off majority of their stuff and retaining a small team of only 25 employees to finish the pending projects.

As of now, several of their renowned titles like episodic adventure series Back to the Future: The Game, Jurassic Park: The Game, Monkey Island and Telltale's The Walking Dead are removed from Valve's digital storefront Steam and not available for sale anymore.

Even though delisted from Steam, those who already own the game can download from library and play them if they want. Besides, they are still present on other platforms like GOG, PlayStation Store and Xbox Marketplace.

Another distribution platform Humble Bundle is still selling The Walking Dead: Season One, The Walking Dead: Season Two, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier and The Walking Dead: Michonne spin-off from the survival horror graphic adventure franchise.

RELATED: Telltale Games Sued for Breaking Labor Laws

Although the entirety of series is taken out from Steam, The Walking Dead: The Final Season is not off the racks yet. In October, the studio made a deal with series creator Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible) and his company Skybound Entertainment to complete Clementine's story on a deserving note.

Other popular franchise like Batman: The Telltale Series, Game of Thrones, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series and Tales from the Borderlands are still up there. It is visibly quite apparent that the entire Telltale catalog will be removed soon.

Telltale Games is currently looking for parties to gain enough money for their assets through assignment proceedings in association with Sherwood Partners, so that they could pay any creditors before completely shutting down.

The studio is currently in a situation similar to bankruptcy and they were by sued by a former employee. A class-action lawsuit was filed against the company in the federal court of San Francisco for violating labor laws of California.

DayZ Beta Live Now

After spending half a decade, DayZ is about to leave Early Access on Steam and Beta goes live now as 1.0 version.

Developer/publisher Bohemia Interactive started their journey of open world multiplayer survival game DayZ that was built as a mod for Arma 2 in 2012. It was launched via Early Access on Steam for PC back in 2013 as they were running alpha testing.

After spending half a decade in that phase for slow development progress, the studio is finally launched an experimental "beta" version as 1.0 release after making an announcement earlier in their official blog and it is available for public.

Initially, the mod's creator, Dean Hall came to work for Bohemia to work on the Arma franchise when he took a leave from New Zealand army. He was inspired from a real-life experience of a training exercise that led him to create zombie survival game.

With permission from the company, Hall created the DayZ mod for Arma 2 and then released it as a free download. People simply loved it and within months, have amassed a staggering number of over half a million players.

This made Bohemia Interactive to seriously consider the mod to turn it into a stand-alone game. When Valve's online distribution platform Steam unleashed the second wave of big Early Access titles, it came out selling a million copies in just four weeks.

Although they targeted to release a beta version of the game before the end of 2014, the team of development has struggled to deliver what they promised to their fans. They only managed to revamp the game engine and expanded Chernarus map.

RELATED: Amnesia: Collection on Xbox One Out Now

The problem was, without fixing the already existing issues and fixing bugs, the studio was busy adding additional features to it. Meanwhile, Hall moved on with founding his own studio and director Brian Hicks left the project on early 2018.

However, rest of the team finally pulled it off by releasing the experimental beta build and came to a decision of preparing a stable 1.0 version with all available content by January 2019 by putting a stop to their usual feature developing practice.

Since their core technology development is done for, Bohemia Interactive can now center their focus on polishing and making balance tweaks. Some of you may or may not have noticed some of the fixed issues in the past week already if you are still playing.

Given the overall situation, they made the right call of prioritizing their primary promise to the already existing 1 million players from the early days who believed in them and bought an unfinished game and to many more to come in future.

Resident Evil, Zero & 4 Coming to Nintendo Switch

Capcom has officially announced to bring some classic Resident Evil games to Nintendo Switch next year.

Although we are still not sure if upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake will head to next gen handheld console Nintendo Switch anytime soon after release or not at all, we do know now that some of the fan-favorite titles sure would.

Developer/publisher Capcom have plans to bring in some classic titles from the RE franchise on the hybrid console so they don't really feel left out from all the fun while everyone else would be busy playing the RE2Make on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Introduces Lickers

Our best guess is that, Capcom will go after porting the HD remaster versions of these games for Switch. The developers even made available a cloud version of their most recent title, Resident Evil 7 for the console for a certain amount of fee.

The original Resident Evil game came out in 1996 for PlayStation, Resident Evil 0 debuted later in 2002 for the GameCube console and Resident Evil 4 followed as another exclusive to the same platform in 2004, eventually coming to other platforms as well.

Days Gone Delayed Again

Upcoming zombie-apocalypse adventure Days Gone from Bend Studio has been delayed again for two months now.

Upcoming action-adventure survival horror game Days Gone from developer Bend Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment was previously delayed to 2019 and then came up with an official release date of February 22, 2019.

However, according to a recent official Blog post, this PlayStation 4-exclusive title has now been pushed back for two more months and newly revealed launch date is set for April 26, 2019. The developer studio wants to take this extra time to further polish the game.

Though these setbacks can be annoying for this highly anticipated title, it may actually be for good because the February 2019 lineup is pretty crowded with games like Anthem, Crackdown 3 and Metro Exodus from Electronic Arts, Microsoft and Deep Silver respectively.

Moving up to April makes the game one of the biggest console launch for that month as well as less competition at that time. Plus, those couple of extra months in development can really makes a difference to the game that is already looking pretty awesome.




Days Gone is a post-apocalyptic motorbike adventure in a world which has been ravaged by zombie-like creatures called Freakers and players take the role of a bounty hunter and drifter named Deacon St. John, who scavenges for supplies in order to survive.

The game was originally revealed back at E3 2016 and then went on to release a few videos showcasing some extended gameplay walkthroughs. Initially, the creators wanted to release the game on 2018 but due to circumstances, it is delayed this long.
