In today’s all-new behind the scenes video, hear from Troy Baker (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Laura Bailey (Selina Kyle/Catwoman) and Travis Willingham (Harvey Dent) on their creative process in bringing these iconic characters to life with a fresh spin, as well as the exciting and challenging experience of performing in an interactive narrative.
In Episode Two, with Gotham City’s first family mired in corruption, and an old friend now a dangerous adversary, the life of the Dark Knight is turned upside down. What was Thomas Wayne entangled in, and why was he killed? Determined to learn the truth about his father, Bruce sets out to question those involved in Gotham’s criminal past. But which mask will he wear – The billionaire, or the bat? Huge decisions will forever change the Batman and the lives of those around him, as he meets the Children of Arkham.
In their 9 out of 10 review of Episode Two, Game Informer said the chapter is, “dark, and is loaded with shocking moments and riveting character twists” also calling it, “one of Telltale’s best efforts yet.” IGN.com said, “The way Children of Arkham’s story confounds my expectations of events as a long-time Bat-fan is its most alluring quality,” also saying that the episode, “continues to build an engaging Dark Knight story in a unique and uncharted version of the D.C. legend’s universe.”
The series is also available to purchase at retailers now as a special Season Pass Disc, which includes the first of five episodes in the season, and grants access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates.
