As part of San Diego Comic-Con, Telltale Games has pulled out all the stops in announcing three new series coming to our gaming systems later this year and in 2018.
There’s a fourth – and final – season of The Walking Dead, a second season of Batman: The Telltale Series, and, perhaps most surprisingly, a season two of The Wolf Among Us.
You can see the full announcement from SDCC below:
Batman: The Enemy Within will be the second series of the popular Batman series, made in conjunction with DC comics. In a surprise announcement, the first episode, entitled The Enigma, will be available to download on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 8th August – that’s only three weeks away!
It picks up where season one left off, although it can be played without prior knowledge if you never played the first set of episodes. If you did though, your choices can be carried over to personalise your experience with The Enemy Within.
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series will premiere at some point in 2018, although more specific date details have not been given. Telltale has confirmed that the series will return to focusing on Clementine as the lead role. It’s being labelled as ‘The Final Season’, although who knows if that means more spin-offs (á la the Michonne miniseries) are also off the cards.
Coming during the second half of 2018 is the second season of The Wolf Among Us, a series based on Bill Willingham’s Fable comic series. Telltale Games has never committed to continuing the series, so fans have long since assumed any prospect of a sequel was long gone. It’s great news though, as the darkly skewed fairytale-based world of The Wolf Among Us is one of Telltale’s best (in my humble opinion, anyway).
It’ll pick up with the familiar cast of characters, led by Bigby Wolf and Snow White. We’re not sure yet where the story will take us or if it will follow directly on from season one; Telltale has just stated it will have a ‘fresh story arc’.
We’ll have more news on Telltale’s new announcements as they unfold. But be sure to mark your calendars for 8th August when episode one of Batman: The Enemy Within launches.
