Batman: The Enemy Within Have Two Different Endings

One thing fans of Telltale Games would agree without a doubt is that the developer has re-invented if not mastered the point-and-click adventure games of modern times and with each new releases, they prove it time after time. The studio did a great job tinkering with the established folklore of DC Comics' most iconic hero Batman in Batman: The Telltale Series in 2016 and the sequel Batman: The Enemy Within in 2017.

Batman: The Enemy Within Have Two Different Endings

Batman: The Enemy Within is the second season of Telltale's attempt of re-creating the legends of The Dark Knight for gamers. The first season and the already released episodes of season two is doing exceptionally well so far. We all are now waiting for the season finale and it is going to be released on March 27, drawing conclusion to another thrilling chapter of Bruce Wayne/ Batman trying to save Gotham City from the rampant criminal society.

The developers and studio is very excited about the final episode as it just doesn't give it a closure but also because this one is the greatest piece of content they have created for the series till date. Telltale's stories are different than any of the stories from DC Universe as they take a unique dig at the saga and the latest twist they added to the list is to create their own version of The Joker.

The Pact Associates

When he was first discovered by Bruce Wayne in Arkham Asylum as a former patient named John Doe. He didn't become the Clown Prince of Crime back then but his past was anything but clouded. However, he had a deep admiration for Bruce Wayne and just wanted to be his best friend more than anything. He even introduced Bruce to The Pact, a small gang of super-criminals consisting Bane, Harley Quinn and Mr. Freeze.

Just because John Doe was way far from becoming The Joker at that point, many actually started rooting for him. It was a very bold move from Telltale to even pitch the idea of this pale skinned and green haired individual having any sort of friendly relationship with Bruce Wayne because of many Batman fans would start ranting about it immediately but all things worked out fine in the end. Instead of beating him up and taking him back to Arkham, players tried to guide him through Bruce's character.

Since one of the nature of episodic graphic adventure games are the ending and many other aspects of a game changes depending on your actions, your approach towards John Doe in The Enemy Within will shape up his character in the endgame. Whether or not you want him to be Harley's boyfriend or bring down his criminal endeavors, it's all up to you. The way you treat him will shape The Joker of tomorrow.

The finale episode will reach to a certain point with every loose ends and John Doe will either transform into a Vigilante or Villain. If he turns out evil, then you already know that he is destined to become Batman’s arch-nemesis. The end of their friendship will set him nuts and he will wreck havoc on Gotham. Although, The Joker becoming a vigilante would like to team-up with Batman to eradicate all crime from the city.

We better not go any deep with this than we did, because the final episode is dropping within two weeks and you probably wouldn't like the story to be spoiled. You should play the episode titled "Same Stitch" when it is finally released for Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and mobile devices on March 27 to find out the epic conclusion yourself. The fifth episode contains three and a half hours worth of content and with a few variations of outcomes, it can be even longer.

Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Five Release Date

Developer Telltale Games have done a great job recreating the legends of Batman with inspiration taken from the source materials of DC Comics and adapted a new version of the character where the players build their own saga as they progress further in each episode of the game. Telltale has officially announced the release date for the fifth and final episode of Batman: The Enemy Within titled "Same Stitch".

As you know that previously made choices will shape-up things for you in Batman: The Enemy Within, a huge turn-of-event awaits the finale depends on how you reaped your steps in the past episodes. We are talking about a twist of the character John Doe, who is destined to become Batman's arch-nemesis The Joker. Based on your actions in prior episodes, John Doe will evolve and whether or not he becomes a problem for Bruce Wayne still remains a question.

We are dropping the official episode description of Batman: The Enemy Within's Season Finale below for you to take a look at.

"What would you choose: a friend whose unhinged approach to justice turns your allies against you, or a sworn enemy who will stop at nothing to see you suffer as your city burns? Based on the relationship you’ve built with John Doe, you'll see one of two very different stories play out. So what’ll it be, Bruce: friend...or foe?"

We believe, John Doe will either become the maniacal Clown Prince of Crime we know him to be or an unlikely ally for Batman/Bruce Wayne that we have never seen before. Telltale already planned out two different ending for the story and developed over 4,500 lines of dialogue for 38 characters from the episode. Amanda Waller of the Agency, Bane, Harley Quinn and Mr. Freeze may appear in supporting role of the story as well.

Season Finale of Batman: The Enemy Within, "Same Stitch" will be out on March 27, to play on Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and mobile devices. With that, Telltale's second season of episodic point-and-click graphic adventure based on The Dark Knight will come to an end. Judging by the very positive reception from the fans, Batman: The Telltale Series is much likely to return with a third season, where we will see the Caped Crusader in more actions and tackle more bad guys.

Batman: The Telltale Series Tie-In Comics "Sins of the Father"

With so many popular video games based on the popular DC Comics character Batman, it was quite a bold move for developer Telltale Games to come up with a brand-new saga of The Dark Knight with a re-defined origin. After the successful completion of Batman: The Telltale Series season one, Telltale is currently in-progress with season two, Batman: The Enemy Within. Now, a comic book limited series titled Batman: Sins of the Father is coming in February 2018.

The interactive experience of Telltale's episodic point-and-click graphic adventure really picked up audience interest and now, there is a tie-in book on the way. Veteran comic-book and TV writer for Netflix, Christos Gage (Civil War – House of M, World War Hulk – X-Men) is teamed up with artist Raffaele Ienco (Mechanism, Symmetry) to expand the universe even further by bridging the gap between the two seasons of the acclaimed game.

After his debut in the newly re-imagined Gotham City, Bruce Wayne has encountered many villains and psychopaths as himself and his alter ego, Batman. The situation is not always black and white for him and that is why he has to go infiltrate a crime joint to reach the bottom of the problem. Fan favorite characters like Jim Gordon and Amanda Waller crosses paths with him but they too are not exactly are who we used to know in comics, despite some basics of course.

Working on Sins of the Father is quite a throwback for writer Christos Gage as he started his early comic-book endeavor with a Deadshot mini-series nearly 15 years ago that was later re-printed as Deadshot: Bulletproof and the same character is making his way into the world of Telltale's Batman to serve as the main antagonist for the series. Also, Bruce Wayne will get back to restore his family reputation after discovering the shocking revelation about his father.

Already taking a bold new direction for all the characters that we've known for almost all of our lives, Sins of the Father presented a challenge for Christos Gage and his partner Raffaele Ienco to walk a parallel path and live up to the expectation of the fans. The online playthrough videos of Batman: The Telltale Series season one really helped the old hand of Gage here when his editor Jim Chadwick tasked him to handle the project.

Besides, the unique nature of the world Telltale's Batman presents the opportunity to make a few tweaks at the established canon without ruining the core of that character. While Bruce is already having a hard time learning that his father Thomas Wayne was not the heroic figure he thought of, it seems even Alfred was aware of this secret and that makes it a lot worse. The legacy he has built on and the lifelong crime-fighting career he has taken seems baseless to him now.

Providing, where the developer studio wants to go next with Batman: The Enemy Within and later with newer seasons of Batman: The Telltale Series, Gage and Ienco still had enough freedom to create a direction where they wanted this version of The Dark Knight to go. There will probably a chapter where both Bruce Wayne and Floyd Lawton will come face to face without their masks and that should be something no one wants to miss. The writer believes that somehow Deadshot is just a dark reflection of Batman considering all odds.

Another character from Batman legend named Black Spider is part of the story and he is hired by Deadshot to face off his enemy. As usual, Commissioner Jim Gordon and Alfred Pennyworth are inseparable parts of Bruce's life as they are in Sins of the Father. Characters that made their debut on Batman: The Enemy Within won't have any direct interaction with Bruce Wayne/Batman though but hopefully they will make their presence known for sure.

Telltale Games have already done a fantastic job by re-telling Bruce Wayne's origin in their first game based on Batman and how he eventually discovers a criminal conspiracy in his family. From the beginning of the video game series, Bruce had been trying to bring balance to Gotham City by going undercover to make an ally with the underworld loonies and then being The Caped Crusader at night to fight crime.

The official synopsis to the first digital issue of "Batman: Sins of the Father" series is as follows:

"After the events of season one, Bruce Wayne is working to rebuild the reputation of his family and their company, Wayne Enterprises, while his alter ego, Batman, attempts to create a working relationship between himself and the GCPD. However, before Bruce can begin reparations for the families affected by Thomas Wayne, a mysterious figure begins killing people associated with Arkham Asylum. As suspicion falls on the families suing Wayne, Batman will begin his own investigation into the mystery assassin—and he’ll paint a target on his own back in the process."
Since the story takes place after season 1 and before season 2, events taken place during the "Sins of the Father" will be later featured in later episodes of The Enemy Within in August, 2018. Seeing Telltale following the footsteps of other big-name franchises in film and gaming industry to expand their fictional universe into tie-in comics says how much they really care for the saga of The Dark Knight they have established over the two seasons of the game.

DC Comics is taking the same approach with this limited series as they did with Injustice: Gods Among Us series, by releasing two chapters digitally before they are available as print issue. The first digital chapter of the book will be released on release February 12 and the rest will come out in every other week. February 21 marks the date for the first print issue from the remaining six from the limited series.

Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Four Trailer

As developer/publisher Telltale Games approaches near the release of Batman: The Enemy Within episode four titled “What Ails You”, they thought it would be a good time to drop the trailer hinting at the upcoming events that we can expect from this unique Batman game even though the nature of the game's episodic adventure makes it hard to assume anything in advance. World's Greatest Detective is returning once again to the brand-new twisted world that Telltale has created for him.

Below is the official trailer for the fourth chapter of Batman: The Telltale Series' second season for you to check out.

RELATED: Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Four Release Date

Episode four trailer begins with the hints that the previous events from episode three, "Fractured Mask" has led to the disbandment of the Pact and the long charade that Bruce Wayne was playing is now over. Former Arkham patient "John Doe" knows now who Bruce really is. Amanda Waller must be cooking some serious plans which involve The Agency and she is now forcing him to work for her. The secrets that The Riddler left have shaken everyone up and John Doe is on his way of becoming the clown prince of crime.

Bane and Mister Freeze were captured the last time after Harley Quinn escaped to save her own skin. If she and John Doe can regroup the rest of the team, then The Pact may reform once again and Bruce might have to don the cowl to stop them as The Dark Knight. Whether or not they are reuniting, Catwoman isn't probably coming back to join the gang this time.

Telltale Games presents Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Four "What Ails You" will be available to play on MacPC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One as well as Android and iOS devices from January 23, 2018. Although, the second season of Batman: The Telltale Series is nearing end with only one more episode to release, it looks like Telltale is tearing the whole thing down instead of patching loose ends of the story.

Telltale has been continuing their interesting take on the caped crusader with the third episode "Fractured Mask" and they are back again with the fourth installment of Batman: The Enemy Within this 23rd of January.

The fourth chapter takes the World's Greatest Detective into the ride from where we were left off at the end of the previous part. Previously, Harley Quinn assembled Bane, Mr. Freeze, John Doe and Catwoman to win over Riddler’s prize and Bruce Wayne tagged along. Things went to south as Harley escapes, Bane and Freeze got captured. Surprisingly, John Doe reveals to Bruce that he is aware of the latter's alter ego.

Now that Bruce's cover has been blown, how his buddy John Doe will be reflecting on that is something that fans wouldn't want to miss for the world. Plus, ever so manipulative Amanda Waller and the Agency are probably cooking some covert plan of hers for sure. Now if Telltale can just keep up the pace they are going forward with, everything will play out nicely and players will have a great Batman game experience.

Containing details, plot hints and the villains involved, the two-minute long trailer from Telltale is mostly focused on Bruce Wayne. Since The Enemy Within is a continuation of the Season One of Batman: The Telltale Series, players would get a better hold of the game if they complete the previous installment first.

The clip opens up with a shot where Bruce Wayne is along with Bane and Mister Freeze as Catwoman joins them in the Pact. Then Harley Quinn joins the party to kick off some madness into it. She tasked Bruce with an objective that is related to The Riddler and former Arkham patient "John Doe" tags along with him on this trip. Thus, a weird cat and mouse chase begins again between all the characters.

While desperately trying to keep up with his undercover play with the criminal gang running amok Gotham, which he has tangled into, Bruce gets to deal with the tension between Commissioner Gordon and Amanda Waller too. "John Doe" shows signs of his psychic change to evolve into The Joker sometime very soon. Catwoman also has her moments with Bruce during their current misadventure.

"Fractured Mask" will be out on November 21, to play on MacPC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and mobile devices. So, all you have to do is to hold on a little longer to venturing out in Gotham again in this episodic adventure as World's Greatest Detective.

Batman: The Telltale Series on Nintendo Switch Out Now

The episodic structure and narrative-driven adventure is considered as the winning point for the Season One of Batman: The Telltale Series when it came out. The series saw its release back in 2016 and it simultaneously conquered Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The only platform left for the game to win over was Nintendo and today is the day when it drops on Switch.

Batman: The Telltale Series on Nintendo Switch Out Now

Announcing the release of the game for Nintendo Switch, Telltale Games already released a trailer earlier with the glimpse of awesomeness that won over fans before the game even came out in the first place.

Batman: The Telltale Series Season One happens to be the first mature-rated title from Telltale on Nintendo Switch. With more intense games for adult audiences like Skyrim and Wolfenstein 2 are awaiting their release on Switch system, Batman: Season One was a good start for sure. However, there is one thing that you should know before you get a copy of the game and that is, visual quality of the title is slightly less detailed on Switch than it is on other platforms.

Fans of Batman: The Telltale Series are already pretty busy with the Season Two of the series; The Enemy Within on consoles, mobile devices and PC. So, it's time that Nintendo Switch owners should get busy with saving Gotham as The Dark Knight as they have access to one of Telltale's best game ever. You have to trust us on this one. We are simply not over-hyping this one.

You can get a physical copy of Batman: The Telltale Series game on Nintendo Switch for only $39.99 and can also choose digital download. All good things considered of the game, Switch's portability will be a plus point for those who chose to experience the game on the system as they can go in and out in the world of Batman anytime they want now! That's probably the best part of having the game on Switch.

Batman: The Enemy Within Episode Two Trailer

We all know that Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within is the continuation of the acclaimed Batman: The Telltale Series that Telltale Games came up with in 2016. The Dark Knight is back again on the streets of Gotham City to make it a safer place and take down the criminal trash it throws at him. Following the completion of Episode One, we and fans were eagerly waiting for the next episode.

Although our wait is not yet over but Telltale has just released the Episode Two trailer of Batman: The Enemy Within, titled "The Pact".

We already are introduced to The Riddler in this season and he appears quite menacing. While Bruce Wayne was playing along with John Doe, who has yet to become The Joker at some point, he has met with a new source of trouble in the form of Harley Quinn. John Doe is into Harley pretty badly and this new princess of chaos is an unstable mess who knows not when to stop, which makes her a very dangerous threat for the safety of Gotham.

To save his beloved city, Batman fights the bad-guys as the caped crusader and Bruce Wayne goes beyond his boundaries, even crossing some of them in desperate times. Amanda Waller enters the scene to intensify the gravity of the situation. Enough players are thrown into the game to make it complicated enough but a far more dangerous force to be reckoned with has set foot in the game.

This probably marks the introduction of the mercenary known as Bane, the man who broke the bat once into the world of Telltale’s Batman and as always, he means some serious business. Tossing out an officer in the air with a punch, he approaches to Batman saying, "Stand up. This has only just begun."

With Nintendo Switch is out in the market, its proud owners are eager to know about the game listings for the console. Most recently, it was implied that Batman: The Telltale Series and Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will be added to that list, according to some online outlets. Although no official confirmation has been given yet, 365games and GameBuy has already listed the physical version of the mentioned games for Nintendo’s Switch. Newegg went as far as adding a product listing which is without an image though.

When asked for commenting, Telltale spoke about "Guardians of the Galaxy" being digitally available in 2017 for PC, consoles and mobile devices, which we all know already. However, they weren't generous enough to reveal any information regarding the possibility of Telltale’s Batman being available on Switch.

Among the two games, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is a highly anticipated game of 2017, whereas Batman: The Telltale Series is already released, which garnered mixed to favorable reviews from gamers but not without few of its technical issues. Previously, Telltale also developed two episodic interactive survival horror video game; The Walking Dead for three seasons and a spin-off, The Walking Dead: Michonne based on Robert Kirkman’s groundbreaking The Walking Dead series from Image Comics. Those games were too not without graphics issues of their own.

As Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will be available within 2017, the complete first season of Batman: The Telltale Series is already available for PC, consoles and mobile devices.
