For what’s surely Telltale’s big­gest, riski­est ad­ven­ture to date, the stu­dio has re­united Tales

From The Border­lands leads Troy Baker and Laura Bai­ley as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle – a sen­si­ble move given its re­cent un­even record. Smart, too, that it’s spend­ing more time with the man be­neath the mask: Telltale has al­ways been bet­ter at di­a­logue than ac­tion, and though the QTE-led fights show it’s been work­ing hard to im­prove its in­creas­ingly rusty en­gine, it can’t com­pete with

Arkham Knight’s slick brawl­ing. Telltale is de­ter­mined to leave its own stamp on the brand, but it’s not moving away from es­tab­lished char­ac­ters. Har­vey Dent and Carmine Fal­cone are among those who’ll re­mem­ber the choices you make. It hopes to have all five episodes out by the end of the year, but we’re not hold­ing our breath.
