Telltale says more Walking Dead content is coming before Season 2

It’s already pretty well-known that Telltale is hard at work on another season of their critically acclaimed cel-shaded adventure rendition of The Walking Dead. However, what’s not been known until now is that Telltalle may be working on new Walking Dead content that players will be able to experience before the second season hits.

During the most recent episode of IGN’s “Up At Noon” talk-show, Telltale writer Gary Whitta stated the following:

“I can tell you what you already know, which is season two is coming. There’s not much to say because it really is very early…it’s a way off… but, knowing that it’s a way off, and knowing that people are hungry for more walking Dead… there may very well be more Walking Dead from Telltale before season two. We may have a little something extra for you between season one and two… that will make the wait for season two slightly less agonizing.”

We have to admit, we’re stumped. What could Whitta be teasing? A short prologue to season two? A sidestory to the Lee/Clementine arc? A prequel of sorts? We assume he meas actual playable content, though that may not necessarily be the case. Perhaps it’ll be some sort of video or video miniseries. Also, will this new content be free or for purchase? Time to bring out the rumor booze, folks. Speculate away! What do you think Telltale has in the pipeline that could drop before the second season?

Stay tuned for much more news on Telltale’s Walking Dead shenanigans in the near future.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
