It appears that a new Batman game will be announced at the Video Games Award 2019. However, this new Batman game may not be the one that most gamers have been waiting for. According to a leak, Athlon Games and Telltale Games will make The Telltale Batman Shadows Edition available for purchase later today. As the press release reads, Shadows Edition brings a sinister new look to the Telltale Batman series adding a noir-style visual makeover and graphical upgrade to the critically acclaimed and much-loved games.
The Telltale Batman Shadows Edition, which includes the Batman: The Telltale Series base game and new DLC, will be available for players to purchase on both Steam and Epic Games Store for $29.99. Players who already own the base game can add Shadows Mode as stand-alone DLC for $4.99.
Earlier this year, Athlon Games and Telltale Games struck a new publishing agreement for five popular Telltale Games releases, including Batman 1 & 2 and Wolf Among Us, which are currently available for fans to purchase. One of the leading creators of interactive storytelling, Telltale Games titles represent a collection of unique and powerful story driven narratives that invoke fond memories for fans worldwide.
Jamie Ottilie, CEO of Telltale Games, said:
“We’re excited to be able to build and continue the legacy of an iconic Telltale Games franchise by launching The Telltale Batman Shadows Edition today. This is just the beginning in a much more expansive plan to build on our catalog of Telltale Games titles, which we hope to discuss in further detail in the coming months.”
Batman: The Telltale Series cast players into the fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne in a dark and violent original story and challenges players with discovering the powerful and far-reaching consequences of choice as the Dark Knight. As Batman, players will encounter classic allies and adversaries, and will learn the true meaning of what it means to be the man behind the cowl as Bruce Wayne.
