We’ve known for a while now when we would be getting The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 2, but we didn’t know what it would entail. After launching on August 14th, Episode 1 is in the books. Telltale Games is moving on to Suffer the Children, the second episode in this final season which launches next week.
Telltale dropped the above trailer for The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 2 as well as the below plot tease. Obviously, spoilers for those that haven’t made it through Episode 1 yet. Here is the synopsis for Episode 2, Suffer the Children, courtesy of Telltale Games:
“A single shot rang out, and in that moment, everything changed. Now Clementine’s chance for a home may already be lost, and her bond with AJ may never be the same. With their future suddenly poisoned by uncertainty, Clem must work to manage the fallout and salvage their situation. But a force more relentless than the dead is lurking in the woods, and a ghost from Clementine’s past will soon return to threaten her future…”
Many considered Episode 1, Done Running, to be a return to form of sorts for the popular Telltale series. The Final Season sports a new over the shoulder camera to better immerse players. Environments look better and there’s a new “Graphic Black art style [that] rips the ink from the pages”. On Metacritic, Done Running, the beginning of the end to Clementine’s story, earned itself a solid average of 74.
Suffer the Children will release on September 25th for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. If you need to get caught up on the series as a whole, here is the game’s description for those just coming into The Final Season:
“Clementine, now a fierce and capable survivor, has reached the final chapter in her journey. After years on the road facing threats both living and dead, a secluded school might finally be her chance for a home. But protecting it will mean sacrifice. Clem must build a life and become a leader while still watching over AJ, an orphaned boy and the closest thing to family she has left. In this gripping, emotional final season, you will define your relationships, fight the undead, and determine how Clementine’s story ends.”
After The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 2 releases next week, there will be only 2 episodes remaining in Clementine’s story.
