Ping. Ping. Ping. The sound of an aluminum baseball bat is familiar to anyone that's walked through a public park in the summer, or hit up the batting cages by the mini-golf course after a round of 18. I thought I would always remember that familiar pang as something pure and beautiful. Then I watched the new trailer for Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, and all I can think about is the sound that same bat makes when smashing in a zombie skull.

It's been a good three months since we last saw Javier, Clementine and the rest of the new cast from season three of Telltale's The Walking Dead. The developer knows how to craft a fine cliffhanger though, and even if the last moments of "Ties That Bind" were a little predictable, they still hit like a ton of bricks. We quite enjoyed the start of the new season, and finally getting a chance to see where this story goes next has on the edge of our seats with anticipation. Particularly because this trailer alludes to some more big twists and revelations to come.

Without delving into spoilers, it's a bit hard to explain why we're looking forward to the upcoming installment. However, we can tell you that getting a look at the world beyond Rick's Survivors has always been a big draw, but now that Telltale's games are drawing closer to that group, we're already thinking about how the two will potentially match up in the coming chapters. There's no guarantee they will, but the crossover between the comic pages and the game adaptation is becoming a larger part of the narrative, so there's a solid chance Alexandria isn't far off.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Episode 3 - "Above the Law" will be available for download on a range of platforms on March 28.
