Telltale Games announced a couple weeks ago that we would be getting another episodic series based on Batman. Today, they released the official launch trailer for Batman: The Enemy Within along with a few key details about what players can expect from the five-part series.
Episode one, titled 'The Enigma,' releases next week on August 8 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac. Those looking for an Android or iOS release will have to wait until early October. The episode focuses on the return of The Riddler, a sadistic villain with a love for constructing brutal puzzles that torture his victims. Batman's investigation is complicated by the arrival of a federal agent and the appearance of the Joker. To accomplish his mission, Bruce Wayne will have to navigate a web of deceit and decide who to trust when he dons his cape to become Batman.
Telltale Games has put an effort into making The Enemy Within welcoming to those who never played the first series as well as veterans. Players can come in completely blind or carry their decisions over from Batman: The Telltale Series for smooth continuity. The multiplayer Crowd Play feature will be available to players who want to play as a family or group, allowing multiple people to vote on what course of action should be pursued.
Troy Baker returns as the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman alongside Anthony Ingruber who voiced the mysterious John Doe in the previous series.
The physical disc will hit store shelves on October 3 for Xbox One and PS4 (expect to see the Android and iOS version around this same time). The disc will contain the first episode and allow for downloadable access to all future episodes.
