We’ve been incredibly excited for the release of Batman: The Telltale Series ever since the project was originally announced, and the gorgeous screens that were revealed during last month’s E3 Expo definitely ramped up our enthusiasm. Luckily, we won’t have to wait much longer.
Earlier today, Telltale Games divulged a bit of new information regarding the release of Batman: The Telltale Series. Fans will be able to purchase a special “Season Pass Disc” from retailers beginning on September 13 (in North America), which will contain the first episode, with a voucher to download subsequent episodes when they become available.
The first episode will be released digitally in August, but Telltale is holding off on that announcement until next week, when the first trailer is released. Here’s the official word from their blog:
BATMAN – The Telltale Series will be making its worldwide debut as a digital download with its first episode in August on consoles, PC/Mac, and iOS or Android based devices. The series will be available to purchase at retailers starting September 13th in North America as a special Season Pass Disc, which will include the first of five episodes in the season, and will grant access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates. The series will then be available to purchase at retailers across Europe on September 16th.
When exactly in August will the game premiere digitally? Stay tuned for next week, when the world premiere trailer debuts alongside the digital release date!
For those heading to San Diego Comic Con next week, we have an extra surprise. On the night of Saturday, July 23rd, you can be among the VERY FIRST to experience the premiere episode of BATMAN – The Telltale Series at a special crowd play event on the big screen ahead of public launch! Join Troy Baker (voice of Bruce Wayne) and host Greg Miller (Kinda Funny) along with some of the Telltale team for an evening full of fun, excitement, and perhaps even some giveaways as the crowd will be encouraged to shout and direct the choices on-screen.
To register for the crowd play event, email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
We’re excited for the upcoming premiere, and excited for you to get your first look at the trailer next week!
