 DC has allowed free reign over 75 years of Batman stories as a framework to create their own original story.  Iggo explains that this is early on in Batman’s career and is meeting Catwoman for the first time and Jim Gordon is still a lieutenant.

“I think people are going to be very surprised by some of the twists and turns we have in there.  We are definitely straying from canon, quite a bit,” Iggo said.   

Batman is known for his gadgets and this game won’t leave us hanging.  Some of the most notable gadgets in the game are the batarang, grappling hook, the Batmobile and a drone.  Iggo confirms a detective mode possibility similar to the one used in the Arkham games.

The combat is different from other games.  Successful button presses during quick-time-events with end with cool finisher moves according to Iggo.

For those who have never played a Telltale game they are all about choice and consequences.  Each choice has an effect on the game as a whole and can have major effects later in the game.
