Telltale Games will start ooga-chakaing next year with an episodic Guardians of the Galaxy game but they’ve a little BLURP!ing and ZLOTT!ing to finish up first. Telltale today announced that the fifth and final episode of their Batman [official site] will launch next Tuesday, December 13th. Will Bruce Wayne keep his friendship with Batman secret or will the whole world try to gatecrash their Batbrunches?
But first, Telltale have started giving the first episode away free to all and sundry as a demo. They’ve also patched the game up with big performance improvements.
If you fancy a crack at Episode 1, head on over to Steam or click this to start installing it. If you’ve been put off enough by tales of the game’s poor performance that you won’t even download it, hey, chillax: a patch has helped it a lot. Well, aside from those players who can’t even load it since the patch.
As for the Batfinale, Telltale tease:
“In Episode 5, the leader of the Children of Arkham prepares to execute the final act of a plan to destroy the Wayne family name, and the people closest to you are in their path of vengeance. Can Batman’s ultimate secret be kept – his very identity – when it is causing chaos and death in Gotham? The fate of the Wayne family and of the city itself rests on your choices. What will you do? How far will you go? Which mask will you wear?”
They add that “Players will begin this episode in very different places depending on where they chose to go in the third act of Episode 4.” Oooh!
