I wasn't opposed to paying! But there's a limit.
E3 begins today, and Telltale have unveiled the first major game of the show, finally dishing out some details on their upcoming Batman series. In a blog post on their official website, the company, who produced Chooch’s Game of the Year in 2015, Tales From the Borderlands, the company showed off a handful of screenshots from the series, which retains the comic book style of Tales and The Walking Dead series.
Also retained from Tales are the voice acting duo of Troy Baker, who’ll take up the role of Bruce Wayne, Laura Bailey, who’ll play Selina Kyle, and Erin Yvette, who’ll voice Vicki Vale. Travis Willingham, Enn Reitel, Richard McGonagle and Murphy Guyer are also confirmed to be part of the cast.
The episodic game will premiere this summer, and will also be available in physical form on consoles, through the use of a special “season pass disc”.
Telltale CEO Kevin Bruner stated:
“We’ve been hard at work at Telltale creating an all-new iteration of the iconic Batman story that puts players in the suit of billionaire Bruce Wayne, just as much as it will put them behind the mask, deciding how to carefully navigate a complex drama, rich with action, crime, corruption, and villainy lurking around every corner of Gotham City. The complex life and fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne has lent itself to becoming a bold evolution of the signature ‘Telltale’ role-playing experience, and we couldn’t be more excited as we prepare to debut the series to players across the world this summer.”
We’ll update the story as more becomes available, with the possibility of a trailer hitting at some point this week.
