The player will take the role of Batman as both the superhero and as Bruce Wayne, his alter-ego; according to Telltale Games’ CEO Kevin Bruner, the split between these is about even in the series, though at times the game will offer the player of whether to approach a situation as Wayne or as Batman. The game’s narrative will offer a “fresh interpretation of the universe set in current times, not tied to any existing iteration of Batman in games, film, or comics”, according to Telltale Games. According to Bruner, the game is set a few years after Wayne decides to become Batman, giving them flexibility in their writing and gameplay to give the player some control on how they want to play the character without tied to any established narrative. The game will feature a similar branching narrative as other past Telltale games, giving the player options for how to approach a situation and having that choice affect later events in the game.The game includes action sequences that are resolved similar to Telltale’s other games, using quick time events. The series will also include investigation sequences, allowing the player to use Batman’s detective skills to progress the story.
