The Walking Dead Michonne
The Walking Dead Michonne is a miniseries that will continue the wonderful adventure game with three new episodes that will work as a stand-alone story. The first part will come out on February 23 and it is entitled “In Too Deep”.
The main character Michonne is portrayed by Samira Wiley (Poussey Washington in the TV series Orange is the New Black) and she lost her family to the zombie apocalypse since she was away from town when everything started. Her two daughters were left with the nanny at the moment of the outbreak and she doesn’t know what happened to them in the meantime.
As you know, the stories in the game are inspired from the comic book series and this particular adventure will let us know what happened to Michonne between issues #126 and #139, how she left Rick and the rest of the group only to return afterwards.
We don’t know who the writers for this series are, but it is certain that you don’t need to have played any of the previous games to enjoy this one, meaning that there aren’t any returning characters and the previous save games will probably not be required.
“The premiere episode, ‘In too Deep’, finds Michonne aboard ‘The Companion’, a sailing ship captained be Pete and his crew, as they look for survivors and supplies along the coast of the Chesapeake Bay. When a desperate radio signal calling for help draws them to the scene of a horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew of the Companion are lead to the floating survivors’ colony of Monroe, which just may be harboring those responsible for the carnage.”
Telltale Games offered us a preview in the form of a six minute trailer which is also probably the tutorial of the game, letting you know how the gameplay will work without spoiling anything from the story. Check it out below.
The Walking Dead Michonne will be released on February 23 for the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, while on February 25 the iOS and Android versions will come out. The next two episodes will be released in March and April and they are entitled “Give No Shelter” and “What We Deserve”.
