Episode 4 – Thicker Than Water – is set to arrive Tuesday, April 25 2017, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC/Steam, iOS, and Android individually, or with the Season Pass Disc.
With the reveals of the last episode, things are not well in the Garcia family; Javi will need to decide who to ally himself with. As a herd of Walkers moves in, he’s going to have to choose – is blood really thicker than water?
It’s already had great reviews – IGN have said “Smart characterization and writing for Javi and his family, plus the return of Clementine, add weight to a largely unfamiliar but already engaging new frontier that I can’t wait to continue to explore,” adding that its “uncharted territory feels familiar and, excitingly, fresh.”
Gamesradar also said that it “demonstrates the resonant power of interactive storytelling,” and that it, “finds the right balance between rewarding longtime players who’ve shaped their own version of the story and welcoming those who might be hopping aboard this grim adventure for the first time,” whereas Game Informer commented that “shocking deaths, intense betrayals, and split-second decisions to second-guess,” claiming that “Everything leads up to a hell of a cliffhanger, making me intrigued to see what happens next.”
