The fourth of five episodes for BATMAN – The Telltale Series has a trailer and it looks as chaotic as ever. The episode, titled “Guardian of Gotham” will be finally open to gamers on Tuesday, November 22nd, carrying on where they each individually left of from Episode 3.
Telltale made a special note that each player’s experience may vary depending on where they left off in Episode 3. One of the amazing things about the series genre games Telltale makes is that to a certain degree, you can make it your own. It’s like having a digital version of the “Choose Your Own Adventure books from when we were kids… except with games, we can’t just skip ahead to see if we lived or died.
I’ll let the trailer do the talking, giving us a tasty glimpse at the villain of all villains: The Joker.
The rest of the press release from Telltale can be seen below:
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?
The series is also available to purchase at retailers in North America and Europe as a special Season Pass Disc, which includes the first of five episodes in the season, and grants access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates.
