Batman Telltale’s Second Episode on the Horizon

Posted on 02 Sep 2016 by

The hardworking folks over at Telltale Games have today unveiled some exciting details about their newest episodic, action packed Batman: The Telltale Series. Coming later this month on our glorious PC platform is Episode Two: Children of Arkham, the second of five episodes to be released. The first debut showing off the newest chapter in the series will be viewable to those lucky enough to be attending PAX West in Seattle, WA tomorrow, September 3rd. Also being shown for the first time will be Telltale’s newest feature, Crowd Play, which allows viewers to help the player direct key decisions in-game via their mobile devices.

At the moment, Telltale Games have chosen to keep a tight lid on the finer details, undoubtedly to keep the launch of Children of Arkham in tomorrow’s PAX West event more exciting. What we do know now however, is that one of Batman’s longest running nemeses will be stepping into the ring, Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, also known as The Penguin. How exactly he fits into the greater scheme of things is currently unknown, but there’s no doubt that Bruce Wayne/Batman will have his hands full in dealing with Carmine Falcone, Catwoman and the pipe smoking Penguin. Unfortunately for those who thought grabbing Batman: Telltale Series was a good idea on the Xbox One and PS4, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to sink your teeth into Gotham’s favorite crime fighter. As for the rest of us on PC, we only need to wait till September 20th to slip into our favorite rubber nippled body armor and cruise through the mean streets of Gotham. Till next time folks, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!

I really need to download this and fully play it, I only tried it for about 30 minutes and I loved what I played, Batman kicking the shit out of Catwomen was pretty shocking and I didn't expect that lol, I can only imagine how much arse he'll kick when it comes to a truely evil bastard.

I think it's fun to imagine that this Batman is the same from Batman v Superman, or as I call him "Brutal Batman", snapping necks, breaking bones and straight up shootin' mutha truckers.
