Release Date: 2016

Available for: PC Download, Windows, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Mac

Those who have faithfully followed the games from Season One through to Season Two know that decisions have been made to shape the lives of each and every survivor. Clementine in particular, Lee's surrogate daughter in the original and the young protagonist of the sequel, has been shaped by these decisions. Has she already been hardened by all the horrible tragedies or has she managed to retain a sliver of childhood? If the ending of Season Two is any indication, she has a grueling road ahead of her and Season Three is going to just as harsh as the previous iterations in the series.
