Check out the Trailer for Batman: The Enemy Within Episode 2
A brand new trailer for the second episode of Batman: The Enemy Within, the five-part episodic game series from Telltale, is out now. The episode, titled The Pact, is out next week. The trailer can viewed below:
More on the new episode below, courtesy of Telltale:
The death of a villain at the hands of a mysterious assassin was just the beginning. As explosions rock Gotham, Batman races to meet a new foe, but encounters a force that may cause even the Dark Knight to fall. In the guise of the billionaire, Bruce meets John Doe’s ‘friends’ and becomes enmeshed in a plot where the only way out is to go deeper in. But at what cost?
The episode releases on October 3 for the Xbox one, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac. In addition to that, both episodes of the series will become available on iOS and Android-based devices the same day. Going forward, Telltale has announced that all new episodes will launch the same day on all platforms.
Another strength of The Enemy Within is how it leverages the choices the player made in the first season. I got to see Alfred wearing an eyepatch, the result of his traumatic encounter with Lady Arkham, and the game regularly reminded me of how I dealt with past scenarios. While I felt like I didn’t have a lot of agency within the first season, I’m glad that my choices are finally starting to matter in the sequel. This continued with how the Joker treated me, as he remembered my interactions with him in Arkham Asylum. This is very much a continuation of the story that I started, and I really appreciated it at as long-time Telltale player.
Despite being someone that ended up hating The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, I had a great time with the first episode of Batman: The Enemy Within. It plays to Telltale’s strengths of putting a compelling twist on an established property, and it helps that there’s a story that finishes by the time the credits roll. Batman’s latest adventure is still far from over, and it’s clear that there’s a bigger tale waiting to be told, but The Enigma will leave players satisfied even if they don’t continue the series.
Batman: The Enemy Within is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.
