Choices you made in previous seasons of The Walking Dead can affect your playthrough in The Walking Dead: The Final Season. If you'd like to play The Final Season with your backstory as Clementine intact, you have three different options to do so: the in-game Story Builder, import your save from A New Frontier, or import your save from The Walking Dead Collection. Please read the sections below to determine which option is best for you.


Please note that Telltale's online save upload system is no longer active due to the company's initial closure. Skybound did not acquire these online save servers and does not have access to any Telltale account information. If you originally wished to upload your save to these servers, we recommend using the Story Builder option.


Regenerate your backstory with the in-game Story Builder

When you start a new game in The Walking Dead: The Final Season without any imported data, the game will open with the in-game Story Builder. This interactive tool allows you to select key choices from previous seasons and regenerate your backstory as Clementine before starting The Final Season.


This feature is great for players who have changed game platforms since playing the earlier Seasons or who no longer have their original save data.


Importing from The Walking Dead: A New Frontier

If you wish to import your A New Frontier save, you must have completed your playthrough of A New Frontier, and be playing The Final Season on the same platform. For example, if you completed A New Frontier on your Xbox One, you'll need the Xbox One version of The Final Season to successfully import your save.


When you begin The Final Season, you'll be asked if you'd like to import a save. Select 'Yes', then select 'Import Local Save'.


If you're playing on console, please also ensure you're playing on the same PlayStation or Xbox profile so that the game can find your correct save.


Importing from The Walking Dead Collection

If you wish to import your Collection save, you must have either a complete save file from A New Frontier, a complete save file from Season Two, or an incomplete save file from Season One that was generated within the Collection.


You'll also need to be playing The Final Season on the same platform. For example, if you completed the Collection on your PS4, you'll need the PS4 version of The Final Season to successfully import your save.


When you begin The Final Season, you'll be asked if you'd like to import a save. Select 'Yes', then select 'Import Local Save'.


If you're playing on console, please also ensure you're playing on the same PlayStation or Xbox profile so that the game can find your correct save.
