Batman games are a lot of fun, but reviewers point out that the titles could use a bit more content here and there.

Far from us to deny the entertaining value of gliding around and cracking skulls of evildoers, but based on the source material, Bruce Wayne has a very interesting story to share.

Telltale Games is the gaming company that wants to approach the Caped Crusader's story from a more personal and dramatic angle and it announced a series of games that will do just that.

"Each night, Bruce Wayne chooses to change Gotham for the better," the company writes in a blog post.

In December 2015, Batman - The Telltale Series was announced as an episodic game series based on the famous superhero's story, but the details were scarce - just a short trailer and a few animations.

With E3 now in full force, it is natural for game developers to compete for our attention, and the gaming company is back with more details about the upcoming episodic game in the form of a number of screenshots.

Dedicated gamers will recognize Telltale Games as the authors of immersive story-driven titles such as Game of Thrones, The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead. Each of the games asks the player to dwell deep into the plot, take actions and make decisions that have a clear impact on the storyline. This could very well mean that Batman - The Telltale Series will focus a lot more on character decision-making instead of console-smashing arcade-style combos.

Later this summer, retailers from North America, Europe and Latin America will start selling a special "Season Pass Disc," which will grant gamers access to the five-episode season immediately as each episode goes live for download. The first episode of season 1 should land this summer, but no official information exists on the release of the following four.

Telltale Games wants nobody left behind, so the games will be available on PC, Mac, mobile devices and gaming consoles.

The company also plans to revamp its game engine, and the Batman titles will be the first to get the best of it. Telltale Games touts that its tried-and-true engine is up for rework, and fans should see a visible improvement when Batman - The Telltale Series launches.

"We've got a whole lot of new technology that's going in," says Kevin Bruner, Telltale Games' co-founder.

He goes on to add that a new non-photorealistic rendering technology is in the works, which should give a fresh and improved feel to fans of the gaming enterprise.
