Telltale Games are keeping their solid release schedule for Batman: The Enemy Within, and launched the third episode today. Called Fractured Mask, episode three revolves around “a power struggle between Commissioner Gordon and Amanda Walker.” It’ll also feature Bruce Wayne going undercover in order to learn more about the villainous group, the Pact.
Here’s the official episode description straight from Telltale Games:
After an unexpected reunion, Bruce finds his attention (and his loyalties) stretched in yet another direction. Now, in addition to brokering a power struggle between Commissioner Gordon and Amanda Waller, Bruce must balance romantic entanglements with his mission to infiltrate the Pact. As he plunges deeper into the criminal underworld, the villains’ plan starts to come into focus, but will his deceptions take a dire toll?

For even more on Batman: The Enemy Within, check out our review of the second episode:
These sort of moral dilemmas aren’t new for Telltale, and the first episode had a great one during its final scene, but it’s still very effective here. On top of the fun character interactions, there’s also a lot of actual investigating areas and walking around during this episode. Telltale has done a great job of showing the smarts of Bruce Wayne, and why he’s the star of Detective Comics.
The Pact is filled with uncomfortable moments that force the player to choose between the right thing and their cover. It also makes important moves to flesh out the season’s story arc, and ends with an awesome teaser for episode three. Telltale Games is on a roll this season, and The Enemy Within continues to be some of the developer’s best work.
Batman: The Enemy Within Episode 3 releases today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and mobile.
