Telltale Games launched their love letter to all things Dark Knight with Batman: The Telltale Series. We loved the debut episode and couldn’t wait to see more…luckily we won’t have to wait long. The second of five episodes in the season, Episode 2: ‘Children of Arkham’ will be available digitally worldwide starting Tuesday September 20th on PC from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, on the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4, and on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One. Release dates for additional platforms will be announced later in September.
Additionally, the game will see a retail release on September 13th in North America as a special Season Pass Disc, which will include the first of five episodes in the season, and will grant access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates.
To celebrate the launch of episode two, Telltale is hosting another crowd play debut event at this weekend’s PAX West gaming convention in Seattle. Saturday September 3rd at 8:30 PM in the Wyvern Theatre at the Westin. This will be the very first event using the NEW in-game Crowd Play feature, where the audience will help direct the happenings on-screen using their own mobile devices.
Telltale will also have a panel at PAX where they’ll talk about their recent projects like Batman and the studio published Mr. Robot game. Oh, and a little game called Walking Dead: Season 3.
PAX West (formerly PAX Prime) is the largest consumer driven gaming show in the U.S. It’s always a fantastic time for gamers ranging from enthusiast to obsessed. Unfortunately for me, it happens to fall on the same weekend as the first of two Riot Fest shows headlined by the reunion of Danzig and The Misfits.
