Last month, we got our first look at screens from Batman: The Telltale Series, an upcoming multi-platform adventure game from the award-winning studio behind such titles as The Wolf Among Us and Tales From the Borderlands. The studio had promised the first installment of the episodic series would debut in the summer, but an official release date was never specified.

Today, we’re one step closer, as a new blog post on the Telltale website reveals that Batman: The Telltale Series will be available to purchase at retailers beginning on September 13 in North America, followed by a European release on September 16. The special “Season Pass Disc” will contain the first episode of the series, and will grant access to the remaining four episodes (via online updates) when they become available.

As far as the digital release is concerned, Batman: The Telltale Series will premiere on consoles, PC/Mac and supported Android and iOS devices in August. The studio is planning to release a trailer for the series next week, at which time they’ll also announce the official date for the digital version of the game.

Fans heading out to San Diego Comic-Con next week will also have an opportunity to check out the premiere episode of the game in a special “crowd play” event, hosted by Troy Baker (the voice of Bruce Wayne) and some of the Telltale team. The game will be broadcast on a huge screen, with fans encouraged to shout out their choices to direct the narrative.

To register for the crowd play event, send a message to telltale_batman_sdcc@telltalegames.com for more information.

Batman: The Telltale Series will be a 5-part episode adventure designed with a “living comic book” aesthetic, and features the voice talents of Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent, Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle.
