Batman – The Telltale Series gives gamers the chance to step into the shoes of both the man Bruce Wayne and one of the most famous superheroes in history, Batman. In a collaboration between Telltale Games and DC Entertainment, a modernised story taking place in Gotham has been created for fans looking for a fresh experience with the Caped Crusader.
Now, a new trailer for episode 4 of the series, ‘Guardian of Gotham’, has been revealed following the success of episode 3, with Telltale promising that players will be leaving this episode in “very different places depending on where they choose to go in the third act, and this will greatly affect their story rolling into the season finale as well.” A synopsis for the episode has also been provided. Naturally, there are some SPOILERS in the new write-up for those who are not yet up-to-date with the story in Batman – The Telltale Series, so far:
In Episode 4, Penguin has taken control of Wayne Enterprises, and the Elizabeth Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane has a new guest – you – Bruce Wayne. With the Batman removed from the streets of Gotham City, Harvey Dent’s forces and the Children of Arkham are at war, with innocent citizens caught in the crossfire. To escape the ‘comforts’ of your padded cell, you must choose allies to aid in your escape, even if they aren’t the sort to put a smile on your face. How far are you willing to go for justice? For vengeance? What now, Dark Knight?
Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman features an award-winning cast of talent, including Troy Baker in the role of Bruce Wayne, Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent, Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, Jason Spisak as Oswald Cobblepot, Dave Fennoy as Lucius Fox, Anthony Ingruber as John Doe, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle.
So far, fans have been really supportive of Telltale Games’ vision of Batman’s universe. Combining their unique art style and visuals with the eccentric world of Gotham means that a game which could easily be very dreary, grey and lacking in color is immediately brought to life. It’s also a nice change to be able to spend a quality amount of time with Bruce Wayne, rather than playing solely as Batman, and to see a new side to many villains we thought we all had figured out. With the note from Telltale about stories being hugely different for players moving forward, this choice-based game looks likely to ramp up the drama and chaos going into the season finale.
Batman – The Telltale Series episodes 1-3 are available now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, OS X and compatible Android and iOS devices. Episode 4, ‘Guardian of Gotham’ will be released digitally on Tuesday, November 22. The series is also available to purchase at retailers in North America and Europe as a special Season Pass Disc, granting access to all five episodes of the season.
