Episode One of 'Batman - The Telltale Series' Now Available for Free on iOS Following a Comprehensive Performance Update
Citizens of Gotham City,
We're excited to announce that episode one of Batman - The Telltale Series is now available for free in perpetuity for all iOS users! In addition, we're launching a free comprehensive performance update today that provides significant technical improvements and should ensure the series runs smoothly on a broader range of iOS-based devices. iPhone and iPad players can begin their adventures today and experience Telltale's critically-acclaimed take on the Batman universe.
In the series' opening episode, entitled 'Realm of Shadows,' Bruce Wayne discovers his father was in fact a ruthless crime boss, forcing him to question everything he thought he knew about his identity. As both Bruce and Batman, players must negotiate harsh political realities and prevent Gotham City from descending into chaos while digging into the truth about the Wayne family's sordid past. The decisions players make across Batman - The Telltale Series then optionally carry over into the ongoing second season, Batman: The Enemy Within.
Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale's vision of Batman features an award-winning cast of talent, including Troy Baker in the role of Bruce Wayne, Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent, Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, Jason Spisak as Oswald Cobblepot, Dave Fennoy as Lucius Fox, Anthony Ingruber as John Doe, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle.
Batman - The Telltale Series is a standalone product separate from the second season, Batman: The Enemy Within. It is currently available at retailers across North America on a special 'Season Pass Disc' for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. The disc includes the first episode of the season, as well as access to download all subsequent episodes through an online connection.
Both Batman - The Telltale Series and Batman: The Enemy Within are licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and based on DC's iconic character. All currently available episodes have been rated 'Mature' by the ESRB.
