VIDEO GAMES: Two New Trailers For BATMAN: THE ENEMY WITHIN Reveal Different Fates For The Joker

On March 27th, fans of Telltale Games' take on the Caped Crusader will finally experience the story's epic conclusion! The following trailers promise 2 different storylines depending on player choice...

Any fan of Telltale Games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us knows how your choices influence the game's branching narrative. Batman: The Enemy Within has used this particular element in interesting ways and made subtle tweaks to the established Dark Knight mythology.

The game's latest episode builds upon decisions made over the course of the season to determine the fate of the John Doe character as he assumes the Joker persona. Players will ultimately end up with a Joker that's either a villain or a vigilante.

Check out the trailers below:






Episode 5, titled "Same Stitch", will launch on Tuesday, March 27th on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Mobile. Will you be playing? Let us know in the comments section.

Have a look at some screenshots below:


























"Who 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, 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 Super-Villain.

 

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 players' earlier choices and make Same Stitch, mathematically, Telltale's "branchiest" episode ever.

 

"Without exaggeration, Same Stitch is the most ambitious piece of content Telltale has ever produced," says Season Lead Writer James Windeler. "We had to adjust our usual development process to accommodate the added scope, but it was super important to us to honor players' choices, whether they chose to befriend John or not. We had to deliver on the season's central promise of allowing players to craft their own Joker."

 


 

 

Rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book, Telltale's vision of Batman features an award-winning cast of talent including Troy Baker, who returns to his dual role as Bruce Wayne and Batman, as well as Anthony Ingruber, who reprises his fresh take on 'John Doe,' better known to fans as The Joker.

 

A 'Season Pass Disc' for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is currently available at retailers across North America and Europe. The disc includes the first episode of the season, as well as download access to all subsequent episodes as they are released.

 

Batman: The Enemy Within is a standalone product separate from the first season of Batman - The Telltale Series. Both products are licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and based on DC's iconic character. Episode five, 'Same Stitch,' has been rated 'Mature' by the ESRB.
