See the Official Trailer for Episode One of Batman: The Enemy Within

posted by Scott Butterworth August 3rd 2017

Citizens of Gotham City! We’re thrilled to finally share the official trailer for the season premiere of Batman: The Enemy Within. Episode one, The Enigma, will be available for download starting Tuesday, August 8, but the trailer is available, uh, right now! It offers a glimpse of many of the season’s key characters, including a decidedly more vicious take on Riddler than we've seen in any other Batman canon. He has far less time for goofing around and much more of a penchant for pain.

Beyond Riddler, there's another impending threat on display, one we seeded in Batman: The Telltale Series with a character named ‘John Doe.’ Internally, we refer to John as our ‘Proto-Joker’ -- a man on the brink of madness who helped Bruce escape Arkham Asylum, only to come back this season with reason to believe that his ‘friend’ Bruce not only likes him but also owes him a favor.

Your relationship with John Doe (and eventually, the Joker) is something you’ll be shaping with the decisions you make throughout the season. As Batman and Bruce attempt to stop the immediate threat to Gotham, John will be watching your every move and learning from your choices. By the end of the story, you will have created your own version of Batman’s classic nemesis through your interactions.

And here’s something the trailer can’t tell you: this premiere episode clocks in at over two hours in length, and includes more puzzles, more dynamic choices in the middle of the action, and more consequence to each choice than previous episodes in the series. You also find an all-new stats screen at the end of each episode that will allow you to see where you stand with your favorite characters like Jim Gordon, Amanda Waller, and more.

We can’t wait for you to play episode one of Batman: The Enemy Within on August 8, and until then, keep up with everything Telltale by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
