Batman: The Enemy Within Season Finale - Telltale's 'Branchiest' Episode Ever - Premieres March 27!
posted by Scott Butterworth March 8th 2018
Alright Telltale fans, the bat's finally out of the bag! Today we are thrilled to share the official release date for the fifth and final episode of Batman: The Enemy Within. Episode five, 'Same Stitch,' launches Tuesday, March 27 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and mobile. You can check out the official episode description below:
“What would you choose: a friend whose unhinged approach to justice turns your allies against you, or a sworn enemy who will stop at nothing to see you suffer as your city burns? Based on the relationship you’ve built with John Doe, you'll see one of two very different stories play out. So what’ll it be, Bruce: friend...or foe?”
As the description indicates, the choices you've made over the course of the season will determine which story -- and which version of The Joker -- you see in the finale. Same Stitch features two totally separate takes on the fully evolved John Doe: one a ruthless villain that hews closer to the classic Clown Prince of Crime and the other an unpredictable vigilante that’s unlike any other portrayal of DC’s iconic character.
In total, Same Stitch contains three and a half hours of content spread across two completely distinct storylines that share, at most, only three overlapping scenes. Each of those storylines includes further conditional variations that reflect your earlier choices and make Same Stitch, mathematically, Telltale’s “branchiest” episode ever. With over 4,500 lines of dialogue divided among 38 characters, the overall script for the episode is larger than Christopher Nolan’s entire Dark Knight trilogy.
Needless to say, we're extremely excited about this one, and over the next few weeks, we're going to do our best to show you why. If you want to keep up, be sure to follow Telltale on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. And if you want to prepare for the finale, you still have plenty of time to complete the first four episodes. Who will have the last laugh? Well, that's up to you...
