Telltale Games Summer 2017 Update
Telltale Games, one of my favorite game developers, delighted gamers across the globe with their announcements at San Diego Comic-Con last week. The developer announced that it is bringing back three of its most beloved series: The Walking Dead, Batman, and The Wolf Among Us.
Debuting on Aug. 8 is the second season of Telltale's Batman series, with this season being titled "The Enemy Within." The first season ended last December, and it was very well received by critics and Batman fans alike. Unfortunately, this is one of the games sitting in my backlog. I will have to play through season one this weekend to prepare for season two!
Here's what Telltale had to say about the game's plot:
"In this latest chapter, both Bruce Wayne and Batman will be forced into precarious new roles. The Riddler has returned to terrorize Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis. With the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of a still nascent Joker, Batman must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne undertakes a perilous series of deceptions. Which of Batman's new allies will you choose to trust? And how deep into the darkness will you let Bruce descend?"
Coming next year are the final season of The Walking Dead and a second season of The Wolf Among Us. Telltale reassured fans that players will get to play as Clementine again in the final chapter of their critically acclaimed Walking Dead series. The Walking Dead is one of my favorite game series ever, and I am feeling very torn about The Final Chapter; I am so excited for a new adventure with Clem, but I am going to be super sad when it's over.
I was ecstatic when I heard the news about The Wolf Among Us, another one of my favorite games. Fans have been begging for a second season of this series, which is based on the Fables comics, and stars characters such as Bigby Wolf (the big, bad wolf), Snow White, Beauty, and Beast. All we know at this point is that we're getting another season of TWAU, but it seems this will not be a continuation of season one; Telltale stated that this season will feature a "fresh storyline starring Snow White and Bigby Wolf," and that it is a "standalone product separate from season one." I can't wait to see what they do with this amazing series.
Telltale also announced the release date for episode three of their Guardians of the Galaxy series: Aug. 22. I certainly can't complain that I have nothing to play!
