As the end approaches, Dark Knight News presents the latest news on Telltale Games’ Batman: The Enemy Within. This brilliant series has been strong from the outset, and the latest chapter “Same Stitch” is no different.

The Enemy Within

This chapter delivers two unique finales (and two possible Jokers) in a single episode. Players decide Gotham’s fate in the acclaimed adventure series from Telltale Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and DC Entertainment. 
The official episode description appears below:

“What would you choose: a friend whose unhinged approach to justice turns your allies against you, or a sworn enemy who will stop at nothing to see you suffer as your city burns? Based on the relationship you’ve built with John Doe, you’ll see one of two very different stories play out. So what’ll it be, Bruce: friend… or foe?”

Two Jokers = Double Trouble

As the description indicates, the choices players have made over the course of the season will determine which story, and which version of The Joker, they’ll see in the finale.
“Same Stitch” features two totally separate takes on the fully evolved John Doe: one a ruthless villain, the classic Clown Prince of Crime, the other an unpredictable vigilante that’s unlike any other portrayal of DC’s iconic character.
In total, “Same Stitch” contains three and a half hours of content spread across two completely distinct storylines. These share, at most, only three overlapping scenes. Each of those storylines includes further conditional variations that reflect players’ earlier choices. All this makes “Same Stitch,” mathematically, Telltale’s “branchiest” episode ever. With over 4,500 lines of dialogue divided among 38 characters, the overall script for the episode is larger than Christopher Nolan’s entire Dark Knight trilogy!
“Without exaggeration, Same Stitch is the most ambitious piece of content Telltale has ever produced,” says Season Lead Writer James Windeler. “We had to adjust our usual development process to accommodate the added scope, but it was super important to us to honor players’ choices, whether they chose to befriend John or not. We had to deliver on the season’s central promise of allowing players to craft their own Joker.”

Game On!

These games have been rendered to look like a living, breathing comic book. This makes them look, and feel different to anything else out there.
Telltale’s Batman features an award-winning cast of talent, including Troy Baker returning to his dual role as Bruce Wayne and Batman.. Anthony Ingruber also reprises his fresh take on ‘John Doe,’ A.K.A. The Joker.
A ‘Season Pass Disc’ for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is currently available at retailers across North America and Europe. The disc includes the first episode of the season, as well as download access to all others upon release.
Batman: The Enemy Within is a standalone product separate from the first season of Batman – The Telltale Series. Both products are licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and based on DC’s iconic character. Episode five, ‘Same Stitch,’ has been rated ‘Mature’ by the ESRB.
