The Walking Dead: A New Frontier episode 5 out later this month

Episode 4 of A New Frontier—The Walking Dead's third season—arrived on April 25, and in an unusual move for Telltale, it's been announced that the next chapter will follow after it in a timely manner. Episode 5, AKA 'From the Gallows', AKA the finale, will release on Tuesday May 30.

We'll have to wait until next week for the trailer, of course, but Telltale promises that From the Gallows will be the developer's "most tailored episode to date".

"As you know, Richmond teeters on the brink of collapse, and the lives of its citizens and all those closest to Javier hang in the balance," Telltale's Scott Butterworth explains. "The decisions you've made and bonds you've nurtured will determine which characters now trust Javi to safeguard all they hold dear as this crisis pushes every relationship past its breaking point.

"Obviously I’m not going to spoil anything, but...stuff’s about to go down. And don’t ask me about that key art!"

That key art, above, certainly promises excitement: there's a motorbike, a horse, and a zombie throat being slashed with a sword.

Chris Schilling reviewed the first two episodes of A New Frontier, and liked what he played. You can read his review here.

His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
