Across the various representations of The Walking Dead in comic books, television and video games, one common goal that unites the survivors of the zombie apocalypse is a desire to get behind safe walls. In the next episode of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead, ‘In Harm’s Way,’ Clementine and her group decide to change things up a bit by trying to break out of the fort that they’re holed up in.
You can’t really blame them. At the end of the last episode, ‘A House Divided,’ menacing group leader Carver (Michael Madsen) showed his true colors and rounded Clementine and the rest of the survivors up to be returned to the “protection” of his safehouse. The first screenshots from the next episode of the game were released last week, and it’s clear that there are many more hard times ahead.
While Telltale can definitely be faulted for lengthy waits between episodes of the “choice and consequence” episodic series, the releases do tend to come hot on the heels of the trailers for each new installment. And so, with the release of the trailer for The Walking Dead season 2, episode 3, ‘In Harm’s Way,’ Telltale has also announced that the next episode will release on May 13th for PC, Mac and PS3, on May 14th for Xbox 360 and European PS3 systems, and on May 15th for iOS.
A lot goes by quite quickly in this trailer, but there are a few interesting moments that deserve attention. The presence of Bonnie may have already given this away, but the sight of Tavia from the 400 Days DLC standing at Carver’s side with a gun makes it clear that this is the safe haven she promised to the various characters from 400 Days, which means that those characters who ended up following her will likely make an appearance in this episode.
There is a lot being set up in this episode and there are a lot of ways that things could go spectacularly wrong. Make your decisions wisely.
The Walking Dead season 2, episode 3, ‘In Harm’s Way’ is out on May 13th for PC, Mac and PS3, May 14th for Xbox 360 and May 15th for iOS.
