All Articles: Batman: The Telltale Series

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, Amnesia Collection, Batman: Telltale Series – Episode 4, more added to PS Store

Holidays can be scary, but yesterday’s PlayStation Store update will turn the terror up a few notches with the launch of the Amensia Collection for the PS4. The Collection includes all three horror games in the franchise, starting with the original game, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. PS4 players will also get the chance to scream their heads off with the expansion, Amnesia: Justine; and the sequel, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs.

Speaking of scary… the apocalyptic Darksiders is also available to download for this week. THQ Nordic will re-release the action RPG for the PS4 as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, and players will get to experience the game with an enhanced 1080p presentation for the first time.

Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, PlayStation VR owners will be able to step onto a real basketball court this week with NBA 2K VR Experience. The basketball-themed minigame collection includes an appearance by Paul George, and a trio of shooting challenges in virtual reality.

Finally this week, Telltale will continue Batman: The Telltale Series this week with the release of Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham on the PS4 and PS3. Bruce Wayne has gotten himself into some Arkham-related troubles, but maybe The Joker can lend him a helping hand… and a smile.

More information about all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a full rundown of this week’s new add-ons is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 4 gets the last laugh on November 22

Ladies and gentlemen, The Joker has arrived. The Clown of Crime will make his Batman: The Telltale Series debut in Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham, which asks players to help Bruce Wayne attempt to escape from Arkham Asylum:

In Episode 4, Penguin has taken control of Wayne Enterprises, and the Elizabeth Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane has a new guest – you – Bruce Wayne. With the Batman removed from the streets of Gotham City, Harvey Dent’s forces and the Children of Arkham are at war, with innocent citizens caught in the crossfire. To escape the “comforts” of your padded cell, you must choose allies to aid in your escape, even if they aren’t the sort to put a smile on your face. How far are you willing to go for justice? For vengeance? What now, Dark Knight?

Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham will be available to download for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and mobile devices on November 22. You can get a sneak peek at Episode 4 in the embedded above, but beware of spoilers if you’re not caught up to the latest chapter.

We’ve got re-releases, expansions, and one of the first games to ever focus on The Great War in today’s Xbox Games Store update.

Also available this week is Batman: Return to Arkham, which travels back to the beginnings of Rocksteady’s critically-acclaimed trilogy and adds in “fully remastered and updated visuals” and all the previously-released downloadable content.

Over on the Xbox 360 side of the Xbox Games Store, players will be able to continue Batman: The Telltale Series with this week’s launch of Episode 2: Children of Arkham.

Finally this week, Rock Band 4 will expand thanks to the release of the brand new Rivals expansion. Players will be able to tackle a campaign mode for the first time in “Rockudrama,” and they’ll battle it out with others online in “Rivals Mode.”
