For a while now we have we’ve herd of TellTale Games’ new Batman themed series, a Batman series themed around the more ‘darker’ Batman character.
For those who haven’t herd much about this upcoming series, Batman: The Telltale Series is an upcoming episodic point-and-click graphic adventure video game developed and published byTelltale Games and distributed by Warner Bros. Players will take the role of Batman as both the superhero and as Bruce Wayne. According to Telltale Games’ CEO Kevin Bruner, the split between these is about even in the series, though at times the game will offer the player of whether to approach a situation as Wayne or as Batman. The game will offer a “fresh interpretation of the universe set in current times, and will not be tied to any existing iteration of Batman in games, film, or comics”, according to Telltale Games. The game will feature a similar branching narrative as other past Telltale games, giving the player options for how to approach a situation and having that choice affect later events in the game
