Warning spoiler alert for those that haven’t finished playing Episodes 1-3
If you’ve been playing through Batman: The Telltale Series, then you know things aren’t going so well for Bruce Wayne. After discovering that the threat of the Children of Arkham lay much closer than he realized, the next chapter in the series picks up with Wayne himself being committed to Arkham–and running into our favourite Clown Prince of Crime.
Check out the official 4th episode trailer, “Guardian of Gotham”.
We’re welcomed back into Episode 4 by a familiar voice. That’s right: the Joker is finally showing up in Telltale’s Batman game.
With 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.
Back in Gotham City, Mayor Harvey Dent has clearly lost his mind, as Jim Gordon faces trumped up charges. Even Alfred is under threat as Harvey sends his forces into Wayne Manor while Bruce makes a final appeal for the soul of his friend.
However, the Children of Arkham are still the greater threat, and their leader has seemingly disappeared from public view. Batman knows that he’s been played, but it may be too late to stop “Lady Arkham” from destroying the Wayne legacy that he’s tried so hard to restore.
You won’t have to wait long to play the next chapter in this series. “Guardians of Gotham” will go live on Tuesday, November 22. So that gives you plenty of time to finish up Episodes 1-3.
