Telltale's episodic Batman game is coming this summer, and it'll be rated M

Telltale Games has revealed some more information on its previously announced Batman episodic game. It's due for release on multiple platforms sometime this summer and it will be M-rated, with Telltale saying "the cinematic approach will feel more akin to an R-rated film."

Telltale added that the game will focus a lot on the Bruce Wayne side of Batman:

Batman is the perfect character for the studio to explore in a Telltale series, giving the team the opportunity to dive deeper into the mind of the man behind the mask. Each night, Bruce Wayne chooses to change Gotham for the better. The team wants to explore what the consequences are of the player's actions when decisions made as Bruce have a critical impact on his nightly crusade as Batman, and vice versa. Certain key situations will give the player the decision to approach a scene as Bruce or Batman, with consequences for both sides.

The art style for the Batman game will look more like a living comic book, rather than the photo realism of the Batman: Arkham series. In terms of gameplay, Telltale says the player's actions will influence how Gotham City works during the day, and the criminals Batman will have to face at night.

The game won't have a direct tie-in to any of the stories in the comics, movies or TV shows, but it will feature many of Batman's supporting characters such as Alfred, Vicki Vale, James Gordon, and Renee Montoya. The game's villains remain a secret... for now.

  • Price? I'll get it for free anyways..
  • Arrrrr Posted via Samsung Galaxy S6 but still love for Windows.
  • Not if they use Denuvo
  • No piracy discussion here.
  • Grow up! - Posted from a Still beta Windows 10 Mobile!
  • @Kamesh support the devs and game community by buying the games, fool!
  • I want The Walking Dead Season 3, Telltale!! Lol, I'm fiending for that.
  • Ditto, and GoT season 2!  That seems to be the downside to Telltale's games... they like to just keep hopping from franchise to franchise without continuing their existing ones.  It's kinda the opposite of everything else nowadays, where it's just sequel after sequel, lol
  • Lol, agreed completely!
  • I can't wait for this game :D
  • Wen in US??? ;-)
  • Sucks to be a kid Batman fan nowadays . . .
  • Yeah. I loved Batman as a kid but now I can't really pass on the love to my own children, it's way too intense now. I'm mostly Marvel these days.
  • While I understand to some extent, I think we're not short on children media material, it's fair to have mature content as well. We can't be saying "think of the children" for everything.
  • Too bad there isn't 75 years worth of Batman media for kids to take in, they only have access to the newest stuff
  • That really depends on the media their parents decide to purchase for them. Classic Batman comics are available on Comixology and in various collections, the live-action series is on DVD and Blu-ray, and most animated incarnations are on DVD (and some on Blu-ray).
  • Only on consoles? cos' it sounds interesting but I don't do consoles
  • It's coming to PC, Android, and iOS too, like all Telltale games.
  • Meant to say I can't afford consoles
  • Every telltale game since walking dead is rated m. Its not worth mentioning anymore. In fact, telltale milking entire Franchisen to boring and linear **** is not worth mentioning . Everything in between tales from the borderlands and walking dead season 1 was bullcrap and dumb and not even close to what life is strange achieved in the story department and what until dawn achieved in the ' choices actually matter' department Posted from your moms place
