The guide to The Walking Dead: The Final Season contains all of the information about the title and its episodes. This is the last installment of The Walking Dead series, a continuation of The New Frontier. In this guide you will find a complete walkthrough of subsequent fragments of the game and the guide itself will help you uncover the secrets of the game. The most crucial part, important choices, is the place where you will find information about numerous dialogue options and choices that will influence the ending of each of the episodes. You can also find information about all of the achievements and trophies available in the game.
Beginning of the game - choices from previous parts
The author of the guide assumes that players starting their adventure with the last installment of the series have experience with the previous ones as well. You start the game by, similarly to the previous parts, loading a save state. If you do not have it and you start a "clean" playthrough, you will have a chance to select the most important choices from the previous installments, which will affect the world of the game. In the final part of the game you will be controlling Clementine and her protegee, Alvin Junior (AJ).
In the first episode - Done Running - the effects of the choices from the previous parts are as follows:
- If, during the season 1, Lee did not stop Clementine from eating a fragment of Mark's body, the heroine might mention it during the card game in the second act, while answering the question about "What she ate the worst in her life?".
- Depending on whether Clementine shot Lee or allowed him to change into a zombie, she might mention it during the card game (Louis' question "if she ever killed someone she loved").
- During season 2, depending on whether Kenny killed Carver or you did it, you will be able to mention it during the card game.
- If Clementine decided on her own to leave AJ, she will not have her ring finger of the left hand.
- If, however, she decided to leave with Kenny, she will have a scar on her forehead.
- If Clem stayed with Jane at Howe's Hardware, she will have a small "tattoo" "AJ" tattoo" on her hand.
The game is divided into four episodes, all released in approximately monthly intervals from the release of the game:
Done Running (released: August 14th, 2018)
Suffer the Children (release: September 25th, 2018)
Broken Toys (release: November 6th, 2018)
Take Us Back (release: December 18th, 2018)
The guide contains color markings to make it easier for the reader to find important fragments and not to overlook crucial objects or choices in the game.
- Blue - are places with dialogues that are important for the development of the story, as most of the dialogues are there simply for variety. The color was also used to mark parts of the walkthrough where you can earn trophies.
- Orange - objects that you can pick up and store in your inventory for later use (including secrets).
- Green / Red - green color marks positive dialogue options, those that bring you closer to a good ending or bring benefits. The red color, on the other hand, marks options that lead to negative consequences or will worsen your relationships with people.
How to save the game?
If you want to earn all of the achievements in The Walking Dead: The Final Season, it will not be possible by completing the game a single time - you will need to do it at least 3 times (in the case of episode 1 - Done Running).
In most cases, however, you will be getting trophies for completing a certain activity or selecting a specific choice - one that might not have an impact on the further part of the story, unlocking the trophy immediately upon making decision. In that case it is worth to make a copy of a save game. In order to do this, head to Settings and then look for Save Files. After selecting a specific save state, you can copy it to another slot. This will allow you to continue with your playthrough and at the same time will give you access to a specific moment - if, for instance, you decide to unlock a trophy associated with a specific choice in the game.

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series - The Final Season Video Game
- genre: Adventure
- developer: Telltale Games
- publisher: Telltale Games
- platform: PC, PS4, XONE, AND, iOS, Switch
The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series - The Final Season is the last entry in the series of adventure games started in 2012 by Telltale Games (the creators of Batman: The Telltale Series, The Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Games Series, and many other games). Contrary to the previous entry in the series titled A New Frontier, in which one of the main playable characters was Javier Garcia, this time the developers focused mostly on Clementine. She debuted in the first entry in the series as a small girl and the final season will present the end of her adventure in the world filled by zombies. Telltale Games is traditionally publishing the game in episodes. The Walking Dead series is based on comics written by Robert Kirkman.
The Final Season takes place a few years after the events depicted in A New Frontier. Clementine is the main protagonist of the story. The boy named AJ returns as well – Clementine is taking care of him. The story of the final season was written, among other people, by Gary Whitt, the creator of the story of The Walking Dead – Season One. Shaped by the events depicted in previous seasons, Clementine is trying to create a normal life. In order to achieve this goal, she must become the leader of a new community. At the same time, she takes care of AJ, who is the last close person she has. The protagonists are looking for shelter in an abandoned school, where, as usual for the series, they must face hordes of zombies and desperate/amoral people. Together with Clementine, the players must make many hard decisions.
The game uses mechanics known from The Walking Dead series and the majority of episodic adventure games developed by Telltale Games, but it also adds some small improvements. The gameplay is focused on exploration and numerous conversations with non-playable characters. It lacks classic logic puzzles. Instead, a great emphasis was placed on the necessity to frequently make moral choices that can shape the story of the game. The title also features occasional action sequences. Contrary to previous games, this time they aren’t presented as QTE sequence. Instead, the sequences aren’t scripted anymore. The players are also provided with greater freedom when it comes to the exploration of the environment (the camera placed above the arm of the protagonist makes it easier).
The graphics of The Final Season use a similar style to the one used in the previous entries in the series. The game features a completely new camera system. The camera is placed low above the shoulder of the character. The developers improved the engine in the final season of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series. Now it supports 4K resolution and HDR. It is the last game powered by Telltale Tool – new games developed by Telltale Games will be created by using the Unity Engine.
