The second series of Telltale Games Batman is a welcome return to my screen with the titular character carrying on a refreshing and different pacing to the Dark Knight that we are used to. The return to Telltale Games is welcome and the choices carried out within the game’s first series will have a last effect on the dark days to come in the games second series, which is titled The Enemy Within.
If you have read any of my articles on Telltale Games before then you will know I am a huge fan of the interactive story with hard choices and the consequences that you have to live with. The games low level of interactivity with the actual story has been a point of contention with some players which is understandable if you are wanting something a little more hands on. The Batman series allows you to interact a little more with environments and get into the roles of both Batman and Bruce Wayne, allowing for 2 different sides of the same coin. The game delivers a engrossing narrative that gives players a 2-3 hour burst of gameplay, which can be enjoyed at the time or you can wait until the full series is over then play all the episodes (roughly 10 hour play time) all at once.
On the build up to San Diego Comic Con TellTale Games have shown their hand to much delight from fans of the narrative driven games studio. The studio released a video on their YouTube channel which highlights the next 3 big games coming out.
The three iconic games coming out will be; Batman: The Enemy Within, The Walking Dead: The Final Season and (much to my sheer and utter delight)The Wolf Among Us: Season 2.
The fourth episode of Telltale Games stunning Batman series is out for release on the 22nd of November 2016, at the time of writing that will be tomorrow. The trailer for the latest episode titled "Guardian of Gotham" has Bruce Wayne come face to face with an all to familiar villain from the Batman rouges gallery.
The time has come for Bruce to step up and take back his role as the protector of Gotham City, uncover the dark routed secrets that have plagued himself and the Wayne name. Watch the trailer below and let us know your thoughts and feelings on the trailer, series or Telltale games in general.
The hype of Batman is enough to get the majority of people on board, Telltale games have crafted a brilliant and compelling story in their first 2 episodes of "Batman - The Telltale Series". The story driven narrative more than makes up for the lack of button bashing combat mechanics of RockSteady Games Arkham series, where choices and consequence play out as the game progresses in Telltale's signature style.
Episode 3 returns us to the world of Bruce and Batman both progressing down their own path to destruction, as the further they delve into the madness to more blurry the world they know becomes.
With the second episode of Telltale Games Batman series due out this week, they tease us with anticipation with a new trailer. The second episode titled "Children of Arkham" looks to be a frenzy of action, violence and underlying deceit. If you have yet to play episode 1 then I would recommend getting it ASAP, you can check out my review by clicking here!
