The master story tellers behind the Walking Dead and Fables adventure games will unleash a brand new Batman game This August 2nd. Featuring for the first time a game that will feature as much Bruce Wayne as it will Batman, it promises to capture the detection side of the World’s Greatest Detective and lead us through Gotham with a focus on strong narrative rather than street fights which most of the other games featuring the Dark Knight focus on.
As with Telltale’s other games the gameplay will consist more of storytelling with the player choosing from branching paths whilst the action will primarily be quick time events which task the player with rapidly pressing button combinations within a strict time limit. There was plenty of Detective work in the developer’s pervious title “The Wolf Among us” so it stands to reason that this will become a much more important mechanic this time around.
The game will feature voice talent such as Troy Baker as Bruce Wayne/Batman (ironically last heard as the Joker in Arkham Origins), Laura Bailey (Sana Kurata from Kodomo no Omocha/Kodacha) as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Erin Yvette (Snow White from the Wolf Among us) as Vicki Vale and many more.
Episode one of the game is set to launch on August 2nd on virtually every format including the PS4, Xbox One, PC and mobile platforms with subsequent episodes following each month. Why not check out the trailer below:
