The first Batman game from Telltale was a success at retail and garnered decent reviews from critics and players alike. As expected, the company will release another, and it will come sooner than you might think.
The second episode, titled Children of Arkham, is set to hit digital stores by Sept. 20. Gamers should prepare to download it via the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox Store for the Xbox One and Steam for the Windows PC.
After the end of the first episode, we're not sure what happens next, but one can assume it will continue to dig deep into Bruce Wayne's life on how he attempts to manage being a playboy and a vigilante. For those who know the story of Batman, this is a big deal and one he never managed to get right.
Since the new game was shown off at PAX, we can assume some guests already know what the second episode will be all about.
What about us folks who prefer disc-based gaming over digital?
Well, there's some good news and there's some bad news. It's possible to get the first episode on disc, but that's where it ends. The disc copy comes with a season pass for future episodes, which simply means you'll have to download those episodes to your hard drive, so there's no real escaping the digital versions.
The disc-based version of the game will go on sale come Sept. 13. However, at this time, we're not yet certain of the platforms that it will support. Chances are, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 will be the sole supported platforms because PC gamers have already fully accepted the digital revolution.
Telltale is known for making interesting video games, most of which the company has come up with over the past couple of years. We've seen the likes of Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Minecraft: Story Mode.
All games have managed to grab many fans from around the world, and we can't wait to see what Telltale comes up with next. The developer is very talented. However, we'd love to see a bit of diversity when it comes down to the gameplay style that the company has adopted.
Almost all the games from Telltale has a similar gameplay style, something that is slowly becoming a bore.
