Telltale games are proud to announce the Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 2: Children of Arkham, is now available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Mobile and last gen-console gamers will have to wait till the end of the month for additional release dates.

In Episode two, the Dark Knight’s life gets flipped upside down while trying to piece together the truth about his father, Thomas Wayne, seeking answers about his death and of his family’s entanglement with corruption in Gotham City. Who will be the one to question the “Children of Arkham”, will it be our caped crusader, or will it be the billionaire bachelor himself, Bruce Wayne.

As a little special bonus today, we’re treated to an all-new behind the scenes video about the creative process behind bringing these iconic comic book characters to life. We hear about the challenge and excitement of taking a fresh spin on a well-established franchise and helping build a living world with Telltale’s unique interactive storytelling format.

That’s two episodes down, if this series sticks with Telltale Games typical style than we should have another three to go, but I’m eager to see if Batman will get special treatment just like Minecraft: Story Mode has with its additional three bonus episodes. One can hope right?
