Batman: The Telltale Series is an episodic point-and-click graphic adventure game developed and published by Telltale Games and distributed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment under its DC Entertainment label. The game is based on Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s Batman comic book series, though not tied to any previous adaptation of the work in film or other media.
DualShockers gave the first episode an 8.5, noting that it provides a strong set-up for this new vision of Gotham and the Dark Knight’s latest adventures, though one of the bigger weaknesses is a bit of it’s uneven pacing.
Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham is set to release November 22nd on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, PlayStation 3, and compatible iOS and Android devices. Telltale warned that the ending to Episode 4 will leave players in “very different places” depending on the choices they made during the third act, and that that this will greatly affect their story rolling into the season finale as well.
