If you want to start headfirst into The Walking Dead: The Final Season without delving into the first three seasons of the game, or if you don’t have your save files handy, Telltale Games has recently released the Story Builder feature, which is a browser-based experience with results that can be imported to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of The Final Season. The Story Builder will help players shape a new version of Clementine based on the previous seasons’ branching storyline decisions.
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 sign in to your Telltale Games 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.
For those that do want to catch up by playing the previous games, Telltale Games has recently announced that those who pre-order The Walking Dead: The Final Season before the season premiere on August 14 will receive the first three seasons for free for the low price of $19.99.
