batman_telltale_Bruce_Selina_RooftopBatman’s allure has always been the heavy burden he’s carried, taking the weight of GothamĀ and baring it so others don’t have to. It makes sense then, that Telltale Games’ morally complex gameplay and narrative style would go hand-in-hand with the Caped Crusader, working to deconstruct and reframe what makes him so special. This new trailer for the episodic series, looks great, bringing a comic book aesthetic to life and promising A LOT of difficult choices. Batman’s usual rogues gallery makes an appearance, and it’ll be interesting to see how the game puts us right between the battle between Bruce Wayne and Batman.

Batman – The Telltale Series‘ first episode, Realm of Shadows, is out on PC, PS4, Xbox One, iOS and Android, August 2nd- a Season pass physical disc hits on September 13th.

If you’re in SDCC this year, look out for the game which will be playable for attendees.
