Just when I was beginning to think that we’d never see another installation of The Wolf Among Us, Telltale Games has revealed that they have a ton of new content coming down the pipeline.
First up, they’ve revealed a new five part continuation of last year’s revered Batman series, entitled Batman: The Enemy Within, which will see its first episode launch everywhere on August 8th (with a disc version dropping in October).
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?
Naturally, your choices from Batman‘s first season will carry over to the new game.
Next up, now that Walking Dead: The New Frontier has wrapped up (I’m behind, please don’t spoil it), the company has revealed that the game’s next iteration will (scarily) have the working title The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – The Final Season.
The new season is set to premiere sometime in 2018. I imagine that this isn’t the last Telltale iteration of The Walking Dead that we’ll ever see, but it sure does sound like this will be the end of Clementine’s tale. Telltale confirmed that this fourth and final season would focus on Clementine in the lead role, allowing players to fully step back into the shoes of the fan favorite character.
“It’s going to be an amazing experience. Thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart,” said Melissa Hutchison, the award-winning actress who has been the voice of ‘Clementine’ since 2012. “It’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, and so much love has been behind this whole experience. Good luck, I’ll be right there with you.”
I’m going to cry during every freaking episode, aren’t I? The first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead remains one of my favourite games of all time.
The most surprising announcement of Telltale’s pre-SDCC reveal is the fact that a second season of The Wolf Among Us is now in development, and should see its debut in 2018.
Details on the title are all but non-existent at this point, but Telltale notes that “With overwhelming popular demand from fans since the series concluded in 2014, Telltale surprised their fans today in an announcement video from the cast and crew confirming that the project is coming in the year ahead. Though this new season has not yet been officially titled, it will debut in the second half of 2018 across all major gaming consoles and mobile gaming devices. This new season will begin a fresh story arc for its returning cast of characters, featuring the return of Adam Harrington as Bigby Wolf and Erin Yvette as Snow White.”
I loved the first season of the game (I can’t believe it finished three years ago), and with the way that the first game ended, I’m so, so happy that we’re set to see a continuation.
Telltale also debuted a ‘Nintendo Direct’ style Summer Update video to reveal all of the new projects. Take a look at the video below!
