The Comics Console: Telltale Games New Batman, The Walking Dead, & The Wolf Among Us!

Telltale Games delivers the follow up to Batman: The Telltale Series this October on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The new Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series will be accessible to those who might have missed out on the first game and returning fans. Though as a bonus the choices made during your play time in the first game will carry over to your new adventure in The Enemy Within! Your friends can also influence the story with any mobile device via Telltale’s multiplayer ‘Crowd Play’ feature.

In this latest chapter, both Bruce Wayne and Batman will be forced into precarious new roles. The Riddler has returned to terrorize Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis. With the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of a still nascent Joker, Batman must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne undertakes a perilous series of deceptions. Which of Batman’s new allies will you choose to trust? And how deep into the darkness will you let Bruce descend?

Troy Baker will be reprising his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Anthony Ingruber will return as ‘John Doe’ aka The Joker. We’ll also get to see other familiar faces from the Batman mythos but we’ll have to wait till August 8th to see what new paths there are for the Dark Knight!

Batman: The Enemy Within – A Telltale Series will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.

Telltale also has plans for 2018 as The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series -The Final Season it’s way to gamers! Fans who have been following Clemintine in The Walking Dead games from Telltale will now embark on the fourth and final adventure of our young heroine. This might end up being bittersweet for those who started this journey back in 2012 and have been with her every step of the way since then.

“It’s going to be an amazing experience. Thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart,” said Melissa Hutchison, the award-winning actress who has been the voice of ‘Clementine’ since 2012. “It’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, and so much love has been behind this whole experience. Good luck, I’ll be right there with you.”

DC and Telltale aren’t leaving you Fables fans out of the mix as there will be a second season for The Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Series coming in 2018 as well! This new installment will be separate from the first and a standalone game from the first season. Check out the official press release below:
