Telltale Games has revealed the second title in the Poker Night series, this time introducing four new opponents including the somewhat out of place Ash Williams from the cult classic movie Army of Darkness. Also joining the player will be Claptrap from the Borderlands series, Sam from the Sam & Max series and Brock Samson from Adult Swim's animated series The Venture Bros.
Telltale Games' Poker Night 2 will offer the chance to win 'Bounty Unlocks': rewards for use within other games when special goals are achieved. With cunning and skill, players will unlock prizes including exclusive skins and heads for use within Borderlands 2, character accessories for Team Fortress 2, unique Xbox 360 Avatar Items, and Premium Themes for dressing up PlayStation 3.
"It's great to revisit our roots after the success of The Walking Dead. People might not know that we have a strong history of humor in our games and players are going to find a lot of laughs in Poker Night 2," said Dan Connors , Telltale CEO and Co-Founder, adding "Poker Night 2 is another example of our ability to work with phenomenal partners and bring great characters to life in the gaming universe."
Poker Night 2 players will also be graced with the presence of the unblinking gaze of a Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System from Aperture Science research facilities, also known as GLaDOS from Valve's Portal series, who will be serving as the dealer. Hopefully this isn't just an elaborate April Fool's joke but so far things look legitimate.
Telltale Games' Poker Night 2 will be released late April on the PlayStation Network, PC and the Xbox Live Marketplace with other systems to be announced later.
