Who’s YOUR Clementine? Telltale Games is giving you the chance to decide that with their new Story Builder, “an interactive, browser-based experience that allows you to relive the series’ most impactful story-branching moments. Your choices in the Story Builder produce a unique version of Clementine that can later be imported into the game itself. These choices will then be reflected in The Final Season.” (Story Builder will also be available in game and in multiple languages on its August 14th release date).
Players will have the opportunity to upload their decisions to the cloud and then log them into the game when they’re ready to play. Upon completion, fans will receive one of 32 downloadable posters reflecting their decisions. And don’t worry fans who have played previous seasons, your saves and decisions will also be available to use for the final season (see their blog for more). You can start accessing Story Builder right now by clicking here.
Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season is now available for PRE-ORDER. Fans who do this will unlock all previous seasons as a free bonus on Xbox One and PS4. We included the press release for Story Builder below. Will YOU be playing?
The interactive, browser-based experience recaps Clementine’s journey and allows users to make choices along the way. These choices can then be imported into The Final Season when it launches August 14.
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., August 2nd, 2018 — Leading publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment today launched The Walking Dead: The Final Season Story Builder, an interactive, browser-based experience that allows you to relive the series’ most impactful story-branching moments. Your choices in the Story Builder produce a unique version of Clementine that can later be imported into the game itself. These choices will then be reflected in The Final Season. The Story Builder is available now and can be accessed here.
Upon completing the Story Builder, you will be given the option to log in to your Telltale Account and save your results to the cloud. By logging into this same account when playing The Final Season on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, you will be able to download your Story Builder choices into the game. The Story Builder will also be available within The Final Season and will be localized in multiple languages for launch. Alternatively, you can import your existing series save files into the game. For more information about transferring existing saves, please refer to this blog.
In addition to building a custom choice profile, those who complete the online Story Builder will also receive a downloadable poster that reflects their individual choices, with 32 total poster variations available. These posters were created by Telltale’s Todd Pound, while visuals for the Story Builder itself were crafted by noted comic book artist Dan Panosian and animator Daniel Kanemoto. Kanemoto also animated the very first The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series trailer in 2012.
