Telltale Games is a game developer famous for its adventure games that include The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and The Wolf Among Us. What sets Telltale’s games apart from other adventure games on the market are its captivating characters and unique, profound stories shaped by your decisions. Telltale has already given us several amazing games based on comic books and TV shows, and now the developer is planning to release a new game that follows adventures of Batman.

Telltale is working on an M-rated Batman game

According to Telltale, its upcoming Batman game will use its trademark, interactive comic book visual style while its storyline won’t be related to any Batman comics, video games, or movies. Instead, it will follow the lives of both Bruce Wayne and Batman, with each decision Bruce Wayne makes influencing Batman and vice versa. Certain situations will allow players to approach them as either Bruce Wayne or Batman, thereby adapting the story according to your choice.

As previously mentioned, this game will focus entirely on Bruce Wayne and Batman, and as of now it looks like it’s staying that way: only Alfred Pennyworth, Vicki Vale, James Gordon, and Renee Montoya have been confirmed as supporting characters. Unfortunately, Telltale Games didn’t reveal anything regarding the game’s villains.

Just like in previous Telltale games, many supporting characters are tied to the main character and most of your decisions affect them, so you’ll have to think twice before making a difficult decision. Besides shaping the future of supporting characters with your choices, you will also shape the future of Gotham City as both Bruce Wayne and Batman, too.

Telltale has proven capable of delivering exciting stories with compelling characters, and we expect nothing less from this upcoming Batman game. This game will have a Mature 17+ rating and will be available this summer on most major platforms.

In the spirit of this upcoming release, make sure to check out the brand new collection on the Windows Store to celebrate the upcoming release of Batman v. Superman.
