Last December, players were reintroduced to Telltale Games’ vision of The Walking Dead in the long-awaited third season of the episodic series, with the third episode of the story set to debut next month and continue the story of Clementine and Javier.

Developer Telltale Games has announced that the third episode of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier, titled “Above the Law,” will be arriving for PS4, Xbox One, and PC next month, though no specific release date has been revealed at this time. However, you can expect the next episode to continue the story started with the third season’s two-part premiere and answer some of the questions that we’ve been left off with.

In addition to the release date for the next episode, Telltale Games also revealed that The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier will head to retail on February 28th, 2017 in North America, followed soon after by its release in Europe on March 3rd, 2017. Available for PS4 and Xbox One, the Season Pass retail disc will include the two-part premiere, “Ties That Bind,” while also granting players access to the season’s future episodes as they become available digitally.

A New Frontier marks the return of Telltale’s acclaimed series based on the long-running comics series (and subsequent television adaptation), with the third season marking a new entry point for those that may be new to The Walking Dead, while also incorporating the decisions and actions that players have chosen during the previous two seasons of the series.

The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC – the series’ third episode will be available on all platforms sometime next month, so stay tuned once we hear of the final release date for Episode 3: Above the Law. In the meantime, you can also check out a new trailer for the upcoming retail release below:
