Hey PlayStation.Blog readers, James Windeler here, Season Lead Writer of Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within. I’m writing to you during an incredibly exciting time for our studio. Without exaggeration, the season’s fifth and final episode — which will be available for download starting Tuesday, March 27 — is the most ambitious piece of content the studio has ever produced. This episode actually contains two separate finales, each with a completely different Joker story. Which one you get is determined entirely by the choices you made in episodes one through four.
Our season is unique among Batman stories because it allows you to create your own version of DC Comics’ most iconic villain, The Joker. Of course, when you first meet him, he hasn’t yet become the Clown Prince of Crime. He’s a former Arkham Asylum patient known only as John Doe. His origins are shrouded in mystery, but one thing is certain: he harbors a deep, almost obsessive admiration for Bruce Wayne and wants nothing more than to be his best friend. He’s even eager to introduce Bruce to his associates, a gang of villains known as the Pact that includes Bane, Mr. Freeze, and Harley Quinn.
Hey everyone! James Windeler here, Lead Writer on episode one of Batman: The Enemy Within. Just last year, we launched the first season of our series, offering an original take on the iconic hero and the characters around him. A few weeks ago at San Diego Comic-Con, we were thrilled to announce that our second season, Batman: The Enemy Within, will be premiering for download on August 8th!
Since we’ve revealed the game, we’ve made it no secret that we’re upping the ante with the number of villains we’ll see. Our friends and partners at DC Comics have left the door open for Telltale to develop our own take on canon, and we love seeing how we can turn elements just enough on their heads to make this version of Batman our own. Just as in the first season, we take pride in giving our own spin on the classic villains, as well as Bruce and the Wayne family… as players found out early in our story that Bruce’s father was actually corrupt himself.
