It’s time for the Dark Knight’s story to continue in Telltale Games’ episodic The Enemy Within, and things are going to get a little rougher this time around.
The publisher announced the arrival of the episode, titled "The Pact", today, and it continues the story of the Caped Crusader as he takes on a number of adversaries, and that includes the introduction of Harley Quinn to the series.
Telltale’s description of the episode reads:
“The death of a villain at the hands of a mysterious assassin was just the beginning. As explosions rock Gotham City, Batman races to meet a new foe, but encounters a force that may cause even the Dark Knight to fall. In the guise of the billionaire, Bruce meets John Doe's 'friends' and becomes enmeshed in a plot where the only way out is to go deeper in. But at what cost?”
As usual, players will have to make a number of decisions as both Bruce Wayne and the Dark Knight, which can change the course of the story as they go along. That’s not to say you’ll always make the wrong decision, but you’ll see how your actions play out.
The game is available for digital download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac, and is also available for iOS and Android along with the first episode of The Enemy Within. A Nintendo Switch version is also on the way, but hasn’t been officially given a release date yet.
It’ll run you $4.99 to purchase the episode, or you can buy the season pass. If you prefer a physical version, that’s also available in North America starting today for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, giving you access to the first two Batman: The Enemy Within episodes that have been released, along with the three that are yet to come over the next few months. You’ll need to download episodes two through five, as only the first episode is on the disc.
