With SDCC 2017 being only a few hours away, Telltale Games took us unawares by announcing not only one, but three new titles that we didn’t see coming so soon. With one of them set for an August release, and the rest for a 2018 launch, here’s a look at what Telltale has struck us with.
The Dark Knight rises
Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series
The bat is making a comeback with another 5-episode long season, titled Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series. The game will allow you to shape your journey towards creating a more just or an even darker Batman, as you choose to trust and deceive who you see fit. Moreover, it will introduce us to the green-suited villainous mastermind, The Riddler.
The first episode, titled ‘The Enigma’, will be playable starting August 8th, 2017. You will be able to play it on your PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC/Mac, as well as Andriod and iOS devices by the end of the year. The physical Season Pass copies will hit the shelves this October for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles.
Clem will be back again – for one last time…
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – The Final Season (working title)
This title is probably going to be as depressing as it sounds. In The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – The Final Season, dear Clementine will be the sole playable character. In The New Frontier, we mainly got to play as series newcomer, Javier. Javi did cross paths with fan-favorite Clementine, but the story and choices were mainly about him and his family. While Clementine was more of a secondary playable character in The New Frontier, The Final Season seems like it will go back to the series’ melancholy second season roots.
Fans have watched, and experienced, Clementine grow and change since 2012. We have seen her transform from a naive yet brave orphan to a well-rounded, feisty adolescent badass. We cannot wait to see the epic conclusion of her journey for survival and finding family. The Walking Dead: The Final Season is currently under development and is expected for a 2018 release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile devices.
Three words: Big. Bad. Wolf.
The Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Games Series – Season Two
This one got me doing a double take, just like its predecessor’s ending did. Finally, the voices of hardcore The Wolf Among Us and Fables fans have been heard! Four years later, this Telltale series will return once more with Fabletown, its sheriff, Bigby Wolf, and its director of operations, Snow White.
Unfortunately, not enough details have been given regarding the title, except that it’ll be debuting later in 2018. It will also be accessible via consoles, PCs and mobile devices. We’re very much looking forward to a just as immersive or an even more gripping experience than that of the first season. Until the second half of 2018, fans will try their hardest to contain their excitement and remain patient.
Telltale’s Summer 2017 Update
The video below features Telltale Games writers, designers, producers, and directors discussing the aforementioned titles. The video also features the exquisitely talented voice actors behind the projects. It includes Troy Baker (Bruce Wayne/Batman, Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series), as well as Melissa Hutchison (Clementine, The Walking Dead: The Final Season). It also features Adam Harrington and Erin Yvette, who are reprising their roles as Bigby Wolf and Snow White for the second season of The Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Games Series.
If you have played the previous seasons of the three titles, your former choices will matter and will be embedded into the sequels. This “carry forward” feature, as well as Telltale’s Crowd Play, have been confirmed for Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series.
While you’re waiting for August to arrive, you can catch up with the Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series on your PC, PS4, Xbox One, or Android/iOS device, which our own Albert gave a verdict on.
