PAX West 2017 is rapidly approaching, and the Indie Megabooth recently announced (via their official website) what they’ll have available for attendees to play at the big show.
This year’s Indie Megabooth installation will include full-sized booths for 43 games, along with kiosks for another 24 titles in the Minibooth. And developers in the Tabletop Area will be pulling double duty.

PAX West 2017 will open its doors from September 1st through the 4th at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. You can find the complete list of titles available to play this year in the Indie Megabooth after the break. (more…)
Respawn CEO promises “More Titanfall” is coming; Titanfall Assault mobile game set to launch on August 10
Respawn Entertainment has supported Titanfall 2 with a steady slew of new content since its launch last Fall, but CEO Vince Zampella confirmed the developer also has “a few other things” in the works for the franchise.
Zampella recently sat down with GameSpot and said, “We’re working on more Titanfall,” though the executive and his team weren’t ready to announce anything just yet:
GameSpot: Since this was your studio’s debut franchise, it must have been exciting to see it grow and evolve into what it is today, and now releasing with a standalone game for mobile. Since you’re working on another title–a Star Wars game with EA–can you speak to what the franchise has accomplished thus far?
Zampella: We’re very proud of what we have so far. As a new studio, we tried something different and new, and while it worked–maybe not well enough to remove the single-player–we kinda expanded with the follow-up, and we brought in the single-player, which turned out great. We’re working on more Titanfall–we’re not announcing what that is yet, but there’s a few other things in the works–the mobile game, which turned out fantastic and is super fun, the fans love it and allowed us to expand on what we did in the last games. So I’m pretty happy with what the franchise has become.
Respawn is currently hard at work on a new Star Wars game for Electronic Arts, so it may be quite before we get an official announcement for (the still untitled) Titanfall 3. But the developer is also very interested in expanding the Titanfall franchise, and Zampella said the first mobile spinoff, Titanfall Assault, would be available to download on August 10.
Telltale Games will return to Gotham City next week, but first, the developer has given us a brand new look at Batman: The Enemy Within.
The Riddler is terrorizing Gotham… Amanda Waller is terrorizing Jim Gordon… The Joker is terrorizing Bruce Wayne… And all three are causing trouble for Batman. Decisions must be made in Episode 1: The Enigma…
In this latest chapter, both Bruce Wayne and Batman will be forced into precarious new roles. The Riddler has returned to terrorize Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis. With the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of a still nascent Joker, Batman must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne undertakes a perilous series of deceptions. Which of Batman’s new allies will you choose to trust? And how deep into the darkness will you let Bruce descend?
Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 1: The Enigma will be available to download for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices on August 8.
Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 Episode 2 will be available on August 15; Season 1 comes to Switch on August 22
Telltale Games has announced that Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2‘s second episode, Giant Consequences, will be released for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices on August 15. This time, Jesse and friends are bound for a new adventure in the “icy unknown”:
Jesse and the gang survived the Sea Temple, but they brought home a little more than they bargained for: a lost adventurer, a powerful device, and a colossal enemy capable of grinding Beacontown to dust. There may be more to this fearsome foe than meets the eye, but to find out, Jesse — together with a few trusty friends — must embark on another adventure, this time into the icy unknown…
Fans of Nintendo’s newest console will also be happy to learn that the Complete Adventure collection for the original Minecraft: Story Mode will be released for the Switch on August 22. The eight-episode series will be available in stores as a retail release and as a digital download through the Nintendo eShop.
Ready Thy Shovel!
Yacht Club Games has announced that Shovel Knight‘s final expansion/spinoff, the King Knight campaign, will be unveiled during this year’s PAX West expo:

Yacht Club’s Nick Wozniak recently described King Knight’s campaign as “light-hearted” and “goofy,” so it likely won’t be as sad as Specter of Torment.
Shovel Knight’s King Knight campaign is expected to launch later this year, and will be available as a free expansion for all owners of the Treasure Trove bundle for the 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Switch, Vita, Xbox One, and mobile devices. The regal adventure will also be available as a standalone download on the PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
In addition to unveiling Batman: The Enemy Within, The Walking Dead: The Final Season, and The Wolf Among Us Season 2 at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Telltale Games also confirmed that the next episode for Guardians of the Galaxy will be available on August 22.
According to the publisher’s Twitter page, it’ll be known as Episode 3: More Than A Feeling, and it’ll feature a team-up between Gamora and Nebula:

We’ll learn more about Guardians of the Galaxy Episode 3: More Than A Feeling in the coming weeks.
The last of Telltale’s “Summer 2017/Comic-Con 2017” announcements earlier this week was the highly-anticipated reveal of The Wolf Among Us Season 2. Set to launch sometime in the second half of 2018 for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices, The Wolf Among Us Season 2 will feature the return of Bigby Wolf and Snow White in a new adventure based on Bill Willingham’s Fables:
With overwhelming popular demand from fans since the series concluded in 2014, Telltale surprised their fans today in an announcement video from the cast and crew confirming that the project is coming in the year ahead. Though this new season has not yet been officially titled, it will debut in the second half of 2018 across all major gaming consoles and mobile gaming devices. This new season will begin a fresh story arc for its returning cast of characters, featuring the return of Adam Harrington as Bigby Wolf and Erin Yvette as Snow White.
The Wolf Among Us came to an end in 2014, and it looked like the end for the residents of Fabletown, but thanks to the “overwhelming popular demand from fans,” Telltale is finally moving ahead with a sequel.
Ahead of this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, Telltale Games has announced plans to produce one final season of The Walking Dead. Fittingly enough, it’ll be known as The Walking Dead: The Final Season, and the first episode will be available for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices in 2018.
Players will once again follow Clementine as she navigates a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies in The Final Season. A short teaser trailer has been embedded above, and Telltale also created an accompanying retrospective video detailing Clementine’s impact on the development team and the video game industry.
In a series retrospective released today in celebration of Comic-Con through Telltale’s Summer 2017 Update, the development team at Telltale sat down to reflect on the journey of series protagonist Clementine since the first episode premiered in April of 2012. In discussing the character’s path all the way through 2017’s conclusion of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Telltale confirmed that this fourth and final season would focus on Clementine in the lead role, allowing players to fully step back into the shoes of the fan favorite character.
“It’s going to be an amazing experience. Thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart,” said the voice of Clementine, Melissa Hutchison. “It’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, and so much love has been behind this whole experience. Good luck, I’ll be right there with you.”
Hopefully, we’ll learn more about The Walking Dead: The Final Season soon.
