Releasing across PS4, Xbox One and PC – as is tradition, mobile owners will have to wait a little longer – Telltale’s new chapter in the storied history of Troy Baker’s Bats begins with “The Enigma,” and up above you’ll find the Caped Crusader going up against some of Gotham’s greatest foes – think The Joker and The Riddler, to name but two.
Assuming you played through Batman: The Telltale Series in its entirety, The Enemy Within will offer players the chance to carry over their choices if they so choose. It’s all part of Telltale’s M.O. when it comes to crafting unique, personal stories around its impassioned playerbase. What’s more, Crowd Play makes its return on August 8th, lending you the chance to share your adventure with friends and family, who partake by casting their vote at some of the more crucial, morally testing moments in each instalment.
Also of note, Telltale’s press release mentions that Batman: The Enemy Within will cater to newcomers and returning players alike, so if you’re short on time, don’t feel as though you have to plow through all five episodes of the original season leading up to August 8th.
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?
The second season of Telltale’s Dark Knight adaptation gets underway with “The Enigma,” which is now on course to swoop onto Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac on August 8th.
Those longing to play through Batman: The Enemy Within on mobile will be pleased to note that the season premiere will be available for compatible iOS and Android devices in October – ditto for the official Season Pass Disc. Much like other Telltale series, it’ll include the pilot episode, before granting access to all future episodes the moment they become available.
