While it’s not the Batman announcement that many were hoping for, Batman Shadows Edition has been announced by Athlon Games. Batman Shadows is an edition that includes Batman: The Telltale Series as well as an all-new DLC.
According to the press release released by Athlon Games, and has since been removed, Batman Shadows was meant for an early December release. The press release also revealed that the Shadows mode would add a sinister new look to the Telltale batman series, adding a noir-style we haven’t seen in the Telltale Batman games before. Players who already own the base games will have access to the DLC for $4.99. The DLC will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, Epic Game Store and Nintendo Switch. For those that don’t own the base games, you’ll be paying $29.99 for the Batman Shadows Edition.
The press release also makes it known that Athlon Games and Telltale Games have agreed to a new publishing agreement for five Telltale games. The five games include: Batman: The Telltale Series, Batman: The Enemy Within, and The Wolf Among Us. The other two games are currently unknown. However, we speculate that the other two games could be Tales from the Borderlands and of course, Telltale’s largest game series, The Walking Dead.
Athlon Games is a subsidiary of Leyou Technologies Limited that focuses on developing and publishing free-to-play console and PC games. They focus largely on creating AAA cooperative console and PC experiences that gamers will want to play and enjoy for many years. Athlon Games have also signed a long-term licensing agreement with Middle-Earth Enterprises to create and work on a game based around The Lord of The Rings universe. It will be an online game set in a time long before the events of The Lord of The Rings, exploring the lore, lands, people and creatures that have never been seen before.
It’s very exciting times for Telltale and to see what games the will bring out now that they’re back on their feet. It’s also all the more exciting because Athlon Games is an up and coming publisher that definitely seem determined to bring out great games.
