It has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster for fans of Clementine, as Telltale closure's effect on The Walking Dead Final Season was waiting to be determined. This directly resulted in the delay of Episode 3: Broken Toys into January 2019, though the new company in charge, Skybound Entertainment, was hoping to get episode 3 out in 2018. Luckily, it appears that the wait for Episode 4: Take Us Back will not be near as long.
Prior to the actual release of episode 3, the in-game menu for the Walking Dead Final Season detailed the previous launch schedule, which showed episode 3 originally set to launch in November. However, when it actually launched on January 15, this menu was updated to reflect the new launch schedule, changing the release of episode 4 to March 26, 2019. This date will likely excite fans who were disappointed that they could not get their hands on episode 3 as soon as they believed.
Barring any more unforeseen circumstances, players will be able to finish this story in March. Given that this season is likely the last season of the long-running Walking Dead graphic adventure game, it's great to see a studio like Skybound stepping up to deliver what players want. After all, many would consider not resolving Clementine's story a true injustice.
Luckily, episode 3 is out and picks up where episode 2 left off. It's worth mentioning, however, that while console players will be able to pick up where they left off as well, the same cannot exactly be said for PC players. It was revealed a few short weeks ago that the remaining two episodes of the Walking Dead Final Season would launch exclusively on the Epic Store, Epic Game's Steam competitor. That said, there's no need to re-purchase the game for players who already own the forthcoming episodes, but a new launcher may be in order.
For those currently playing episode 3, collectibles make a return, with some being a little difficult to find. To that effect, we've put together this episode 3 collectibles guide for those playing through the latest addition to the Walking Dead Final Season.
Episode 3: Broken Toys of The Walking Dead Final Season is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One. Episode 4: Take Us Back releases March 26, 2019, for the same platforms
