Telltale Games has released an in-engine trailer for the upcoming third season of their The Walking Dead series of games. The game will be set a few years after Season 2, and Clementine is confirmed to be returning. Players with saves for the first two seasons will find the decisions they made have an impact on the story in Season 3. Along with Clementine, players will be taking control of a new character, Javier, who is described on the Telltale blog as “a fellow survivor who has been through hell, and has managed to remain alive as long as Clem.” Little else was revealed about the game, but it is expected to be released this fall.
Telltale’s Batman game was announced at last year’s The Game Awards in December. Telltale has arrived prior to the start of this year’s E3 to unveil some screenshots of the upcoming adventure game. Also revealed is the game’s voice cast which features Troy Baker as The Bat himself. The list of voices joining Troy Baker in the game’s cast is as follows: 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, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle. Telltale is promising more reveals of characters and cast as the season progresses.
Kevin Bruner, Telltale’s CEO, said the following about their upcoming Batman game:
“We’ve been hard at work at Telltale creating an all-new iteration of the iconic Batman story that puts players in the suit of billionaire Bruce Wayne, just as much as it will put them behind the mask, deciding how to carefully navigate a complex drama, rich with action, crime, corruption, and villainy lurking around every corner of Gotham City. The complex life and fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne has lent itself to becoming a bold evolution of the signature ‘Telltale’ role-playing experience, and we couldn’t be more excited as we prepare to debut the series to players across the world this summer.”
The announcement trailer did little than promise a new adventure from Telltale set in Westeros, but the announcement has come. Telltale Games has announced a videogame based on the HBO television series Game of Thrones.
Today is the videogame awar… VGX. And with that, not only do we get some game of the year winners courtesy of GameTrailers, but also some exciting new game announcements. With that, the first announcement to come from VGX is Tales from the Borderlands. The game will be a collaboration between Telltale Games, the fine folks behind The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, and Gearbox Software, the studio behind the Borderlands and Brothers in Arms franchises. The game will be an episodic adventure, in traditional Telltale fashion. Stay tuned to PowerUp for more on Tales from the Borderlands.
The second season of Telltale’s award winning The Walking Dead is coming to consoles, PC, and mobile soon and to drum up some excitement for what is sure to be a heavily emotional experience, they’ve released this brief teaser. The first season was easily some of the finest adventure gaming I’ve ever experienced with some incredibly heavy moments (the season finale was just brutal), so I’m really looking forward to what this next season has to offer.
Telltale’s upcoming adventure series The Wolf Among Us, based on DC Comic’s Fables series, has its debut trailer. The developer is most recently known for its fantastic interpretation of The Walking Dead and before that reviving the Sam & Max and Monkey Island properties. The Wolf Among Us will be available on PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PS3 in quarter three of this year.
Telltale’s special episode of The Walking Dead, meant to expand the universe and sate gamers’ appetites while we wait for the second season, will be releasing on various platforms this week. The game will follow five characters in their own stories and will be available for $5. The North American release schedule is as follows: July 2nd on PlayStation Network, July 3rd on PC and Mac, and July 5th on Xbox Live. PSN in Europe gets the episode on July 10 while iOS gamers worldwide will get it on the 11th.
Upcoming standalone episode in Telltale’s The Walking DeadSeason 1 now has a trailer. It shows off the five characters that will be the focus of 400 Days with the promise that this expansion is “coming soon.”
The next episode in Telltale’s award winning The Walking Dead game is subtitled 400 Days and will be heading to pretty much everything this summer. Choices players made in previous episodes will carry over into the new game which will feature five new characters in their very own stories. Telltale suggested that some of the characters the player meets in 400 Days might show up in Season Two with all the choices they make in the new episode also impacting that storyline.
While it has been known for quite some time that Telltale Games has been working on a game based on the Fables property, little else has been revealed about the upcoming episodic adventure. It is now known that the game will be titled The Wolf Among Us and will feature Bigby Wolf as the lead character. Players will be tasked with keeping other fairytale characters hidden in our world. The story of the game will take place before the comic series.
Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us is planned for a summer 2013 release on current-gen consoles, PC, and Mac.
