Batman: The Telltale Series‘ third episode will launch digitally worldwide on October 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, developer Telltale Games has announced. Officially titled Episode 3: New World Order, the follow-up to last month’s explosive episode will deal with the immediate fallout of Penguin and The Children of Arkham’s attack on Harvey Dent, leading to the birth of one of Gotham’s most infamous villains: Two-Face.
As usual, Bruce Wayne will find himself having to juggle two different conflicts as both himself and Batman. Judging by the teaser released last month (above), Wayne will have to prove that Batman’s unique brand of justice is a good thing for the people of Gotham City while also nurturing his relationship with Selina Kyle, who “reveals more of herself to Bruce,” over the course of the episode.
You can read Telltale’s own teaser of what’s to come in Episode 3 below (via Gematsu).
In Episode 3, Penguin’s brutal attack broadcast on live TV has left Gotham City reeling. As Bruce and Batman, you’ll dig deeper into the web of intrigue surrounding the newly revealed Children of Arkham. Meanwhile, behind closed doors, the mysterious Selina Kyle reveals more of herself to Bruce. And in the aftermath of the attack, Bruce’s friend and Gotham’s new mayor, Harvey Dent, is a deeply changed man. Who can be trusted when the future of Bruce Wayne – and the Batman – could be determined by the flip of a coin?
Despite having a strong start with its introductory episode, Batman: The Telltale Series‘ follow-up didn’t quite manage to replicate its predecessors smart approach to a narrative-driven Batman experience. Here’s hoping Episode 3 picks up the pace.
