As a lifelong fan of Bruce Wayne’s alter ego, I’ve been anxiously awaiting more information about Batman: The Telltale Series, which sees the storytelling masters behind A Wolf Among Us and Tales from The Borderlands tackling one of the most iconic characters in the history of comic books.
With the Electronic Entertainment Expo looming on the horizon this week, Telltale has finally given us some more information about the upcoming episode series, revealing the first screens and the headlining voice cast, which includes Tales from the Borderlands alumni Troy Baker and Laura Bailey.
You can check out the gallery of screenshots and the official press release below, and stay tuned for more information from E3 later this week. Batman: The Telltale Series will premiere this summer.
‘BATMAN – The Telltale Series’ Unveiled in First Look Ahead of Summer 2016 Premiere
Episodic Game Series based on DC’s Iconic Character to
Premiere This Summer
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., June. 12th, 2016 — Leading developer and publisher of digital entertainment, Telltale Games, with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, today unveiled the first look at BATMAN – The Telltale Series ahead of its worldwide debut this summer.
The episodic game series will premiere digitally on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices, and will be shown to guests attending the annual E3 Gaming Expo this coming week in Los Angeles. The series will also be available on game consoles as a special ‘Season Pass Disc’ which will be available at retailers across North America, Latin America, and Europe later this summer, granting access to the five episode season as it becomes available for download.
“We’ve been hard at work at Telltale creating an all-new iteration of the iconic Batman story that puts players in the suit of billionaire Bruce Wayne, just as much as it will put them behind the mask, deciding how to carefully navigate a complex drama, rich with action, crime, corruption, and villainy lurking around every corner of Gotham City,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “The complex life and fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne has lent itself to becoming a bold evolution of the signature ‘Telltale’ role-playing experience, and we couldn’t be more excited as we prepare to debut the series to players across the world this summer.”
Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale’s vision of Batman will feature 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, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle. Additional cast and characters will be revealed as the season progresses.
