Telltale Games has announced Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series, a new five-part, esisodic game series that continues Telltale’s take on the Batman franchise. Episode one, “The Enigma,” will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac on August 8, followed by iOS and Android later this year.
Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series will also be available as a “Season Pass Disc” at retailers in October, and include the first episode of the season, as well as access to download all subsequent episodes.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Telltale Games:
In this latest chapter, both Bruce Wayne and Batman will be forced into precarious new roles. The Riddler has returned to terrorize Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis. With the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of a still nascent Joker, Batman must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne undertakes a perilous series of deceptions. Which of Batman’s new allies will you choose to trust? And how deep into the darkness will you let Bruce descend?
This new season will be accessible to both returning fans and newcomers alike, though players’ choices from the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series will optionally carry over into The Enemy Within. This season will also include Telltale’s unique multiplayer ‘Crowd Play’ feature, which allows friends and family to engage with the adventure together by helping to decide the direction of the story from any mobile device with an online connection.
Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman features an award-winning cast of talent including Troy Baker, who returns to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne, as well as Anthony Ingruber, who will reprise his fresh take on ‘John Doe,’ better known to fans as The Joker.
