The premiere episode will also be available later this month for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; and the week of September 20th for compatible iOS devices via the App Store, and for compatible Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.

Here's where to download the premiere right now!

Prefer a physical disc to add to your collection? The series will also be available to purchase at retailers for a MSRP of $29.99 USD or equivalent starting September 13 in North America as a special Season Pass Disc, which will include the first of five episodes in the season, and will grant access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates. The series will then be available to purchase at retailers across Europe beginning September 16.

Today you can also check out our new Crowd Play feature - the first ever unique, local multiplayer options for a Telltale game, implemented for the first time in BATMAN - The Telltale Series. Revealed at the game's sneak preview during San Diego Comic-Con, Crowd Play allows game owners to invite a group of players to vote on story decisions and give feedback from their mobile devices using any web browser connected online when following along with the lead player on a main screen. The feature is designed to allow 2-24 or more players to enjoy episodes together in their living rooms, and will also accommodate much larger crowds and audiences of over 1,000 at special upcoming live events in theaters organized by Telltale. Crowd Play gives you a new and instantly accessible way to enjoy Telltale entertainment together with a group - it's an experience that we hope you'll agree continues to break new ground in the space between games and interactive cinematic storytelling!
