Telltale also revealed in an accompanying press release that season 3 will serve as both a fresh chance for newcomers to jump into the series while also ensuring players of the last two seasons will see their previous choices impact the story to come. The season will be “tailored” as a new beginning for those starting with season 3, while Telltale promises seasoned players “will have multiple options for quickly configuring their tailored backstory” when importing saves from previous seasons. Telltale will be offering more details on the save features for season 3 in the days to come.
Episodes 1 and 2 will be available on December 20 for PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, iOS, and Android, and a season pass will also be made available for $24.99.
A New Frontier will also be available in physical form, when on February 7, 2017, Telltale will release a Season Pass disc containing the first and second episodes, with access to the future episodes as they’re released. The disc will be available for Xbox One and PS4 for $29.99 and is currently available for pre-order.
