You’ve not been transported back in time several years. You did indeed read that right: a Telltale game is launching in July.
The studio has been rather quiet on The Expanse: A Telltale Series since its announcement at 2021’s Game Awards. But seemingly, it’s been hard at work, since we don’t have to wait too much longer to get our hands on it. Episode one launches on 27th July.
Yes, Telltale Games might not be quite the same studio as it used to be, but it still sees the value in episodic games. This time, though, things are slightly different: the first episode of The Expanse: A Telltale Series lands on 27th July, and the following four episodes will come every two weeks after that. There’s a set schedule, with episodes releasing with enough time in between to allow us to dwell on our decisions and talk to our friends about our experiences. But they’re close enough together that we’re not going to forget what we previously experienced.
The Expanse: A Telltale Series is set before the events of the first game. It focuses on Camina Drummer, a role reprised by Cara Gee, giving fans of the series a chance to finally experience her back story. According to the press release, there’s a lot to look forward to: “players must deal with a mix of powerful personalities, square off against a bloody mutiny, explore locations beyond The Belt, […] and make tough decisions that will decide the fate of The Artemis crew”.
Bring it on, we say. We’ll have more on The Expanse: a Telltale Series as its release draws closer. It will be available from 27th July on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Until then, more information can be found on its official website.
