Players will dive into the mind of Michonne to discover what took her away from Rick, Carl, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.
“Michonne has long been a favorite character of ours and fans the world over, standing among the most complex and tormented perspectives in Robert Kirkman’s universe,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games.”Allowing players to step into the role of Michonne for the first time makes for a uniquely compelling Telltale experience in ‘The Walking Dead’ series that will never clearly offer right or wrong answers on the path to survival or redemption.”
In this premiere episode, ‘In Too Deep,’ Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors’ colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage.
