All the info that we now know was revealed in the SXSW Gaming Expo.
Check the Teaser that Telltale gave us down below:
Telltale Games announced their version of the Batman legend at The Game Awards Show in December 0f 2015. The company later released a teaser trailer that is geared to set the mood of what the company has planned. During the announcement, Telltale Games shed some light on what they are expecting with this new title. “At Telltale, we’ve been honored to bring our unique approach to interactive storytelling to some of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be exploring what it means to be Batman in an all-new series starting next year,” Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games said in an accompanying press release. “This iteration of Batman will give fans a first-hand opportunity to dive deeper into the complex life and mind of Bruce Wayne, the duality of his own identity, and the struggle of responsibility in saving a city overcome with corruption and villainy.”
The reveal trailer did not show any actual gameplay but did have footage that featured heavy, black ink pouring over pencilled images that formed into real identifiable shapes when filled in by the ink. Imagery like handguns, money, bullet-holed windows and dark city skylines were accompanied by Bruce Wayne apparently enjoying his playboy lifestyle.
Telltale games has said the game will appear on the same platforms their last few episodic adventure games have appeared on. That means this version of Batman will be available on the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC and mobile platforms as well. The game does not have an official release date yet but is expected to launch sometime in 2016.
Telltale has announced this game will be episodic as most of the rest of its games have been. Generally, games in this line are four to five chapters but the company has not yet said how many episodes Batman will be. The company has also hinted that this is not the official title of the game and there might eventually be something accompanying the Batman name. It seems as though the full title might divulge more information about the story so Telltale is keeping the information under wraps.
