Telltale Games confirmed a few months ago that it’s building an episodic Batman game. It already has considerable experience of making episodic titles, it’s the studio behind The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us games, so fans have high expectations. The studio has confirmed today that the first episode of this game – titled Realm of Shadows – is going to premiere on August 2nd.
Realm of Shadows is the first of five planned episodes for Batman – The Telltale Series. Telltale Games expects to launch all of the remaining four episodes before the end of this year.
Players will get to explore both sides of the character unlike many previous Batman games, they will spend almost equal time with our favorite caped crusader and the man behind the mask, and their choices in one role will influence the outcome in the other.
Telltale has also released a short trailer for the game today which gives us a glimpse of what the gameplay is going to be like. The events of this game take place in a timeline that’s different from any previous game, movie, or comic.
Batman – The Telltale Series is going to be released next month for a variety of platforms including PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One, iOS, Android as well as PC and Mac.
