The studio has announced that season three of Telltale's episodic thriller "The Walking Dead" will be delayed and therefore will be availavle on December 20. This is a month later than the developer had previously indicated.

Titled 'A New Frontier,' Season Three will star Javier, a young man trying to find his way in a world with burgeoning new civilizations popping up the wake of the zombie apocalypse. There'll be five episodes in total, while a physical edition will be released on February 7 including episode one on-disc and download access to all four subsequent episodes as soon as they launch. 

"When family is all you have left... how far will you go to protect it? Four years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to find the family taken from him, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last."

A few platform-specific bonuses are also available for those willing to pre-order. PS4 users can preorder on the PlayStation Store right now, with Season Two and the miniseries "Michonne" included for free as a preorder bonus. Steam customers get 10 percent off if they preorder.

New Frontier will also be available as a physical "season pass disc" on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It will ship with the first episode installed on February 7 and will then provide free access to the remaining four episodes as they release, according to Game Spot.

Telltale Games remains quiet about the specifics surrounding the new season's narrative. Story details are thin on the ground right now, though Telltale said that episode one will be fully unveiled that the developer is planning "a special extended first look" during The Game Awards 2016 on December 1. The show was previously used by Telltale to announced its "Batman" adaptation, according to Digital Trends.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier will hit digital storefronts on December 20 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC, iOS, and Android.
