Today is the day, players can once again strap on the cowl and become the bat, but just as impressive, you can remove it and enjoy being Bruce as Batman The Telltale Series is out now.
The game is available on PC from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services; on PlayStation 4 and on Xbox One. The premiere episode will also be available later this week on Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services; later this month on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360; and the week of Sept. 13 for compatible iOS devices via the App Store, and for compatible Android-based devices via Google Play
"Creating an entirely original story surrounding the man behind the mask and challenging players to take on the role of Bruce Wayne just as much as the mythic Batman has resulted in one of our most sophisticated Telltale series yet," said Kevin Bruner, CEO, Co-Founder of Telltale Games. "Our game will explore all aspects of Bruce's life, from his tense encounters in public with Gotham City's most notorious criminals by day, to his thrilling chases across the rooftops at night, players will think twice about their choices and consequences in a city that's always watching the actions of its most famous billionaire."
"Telltale Games is renowned for its unique style of interactive storytelling, which is a great match for the incredibly iconic character of Batman," said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "We are excited to further expand our partnership with Telltale to bring fans an entirely new way to experience the many layers of Bruce Wayne's story."
The series also marks the first ever unique, local multiplayer options for a Telltale game with the all-new Crowd Play feature. Revealed at the game's sneak preview during San Diego Comic-Con, Crowd Play allows game owners to invite a group of players to vote on story decisions and give feedback from their mobile devices using any web browser connected online when following along with the lead player on a main screen. The feature is designed to allow 2-24 or more players to enjoy episodes together in their living rooms, and will also accommodate much larger crowds and audiences of over 1,000 at special upcoming live events in theaters organized by Telltale.
