Video game developer Telltale Games today released the first installment in its episodic comic book adaptation, "Batman: A Telltale Games Series." Today's release marks the first of five episodes, with subsequent episodes releasing roughly every month and a half.
"Batman" is currently available for download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and across several digital distributors on the PC. A physical disc version of the game is also for sale at retailers, and while these "season pass discs" currently only contain the first episode, the remaining episodes can be downloaded upon their release. The story in "Batman" is completely original, written and designed by Telltale for the games medium.
"Our game will explore all aspects of Bruce's life, from his tense encounters in public with Gotham City's most notorious criminals by day, to his thrilling chases across the rooftops at night, players will think twice about their choices and consequences in a city that's always watching the actions of its most famous billionaire," said Telltale CEO Kevin Bruner in a press release.
"Batman" marks a first for Telltale Games with its Crowd Play feature, initially revealed at Comic-Con International. Crowd Play allows anywhere between two and 24 people to vote on story decisions using a web browser or mobile device.
The first episode of Telltale's "Batman" is available today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
