Batman: The Telltale Series
Developer/publisher Telltale Games Format Android, iOS, PC, PS4, Xbox One Release Summer
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.
