Until November 7 you'll be able to play the first episode of Telltale's Batman series on Steam for free
. Which is a pretty good deal because, well, it's free. As per our review
the first episode tells a pretty solid Batman story, whilst hinting at a larger and more interesting narrative. One that subsequent episodes are so far delivering on. So yeah, you could also chalk this up to getting people interested enough to invest in the additional episodes.
Hence, why the whole series is also 15% off at the moment. So what's it all about? Here's the totally vague synopsis.
Enter the fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne and discover the powerful and far-reaching consequences of your choices as the Dark Knight.
In this gritty and violent new story from the award-winning creators of The Walking Dead – A Telltale Games Series, you'll make discoveries that will shatter Bruce Wayne's world, and the already fragile stability of a corrupt Gotham City.
Your actions and your choices will determine the fate of the Batman.
Or, you could play through Episode 1: Realm of Shadows. As its currently free, and offers up a tight Batman costume-esque movie length experience.
