Telltale’s Batman Series & Walking Dead Season 3 Premier Dates Revealed

Published

 on

A tweet by Job J Stauffer, head of creative communications at Telltale, has announced that the Telltale Batman series will be beginning this summer while Walking Dead Season 3 will be starting in the autumn.

The series, named just BATMAN – The Telltale Series, will be following the caped crusader as well as his alter ego Bruce Wayne, with actions in one life affecting the other. Meanwhile Walking Dead Season 3 details are even lighter, with the main confirmed detail being that Clementine will make an appearance at some point (although possibly not as the main protagonist).

BATMAN wouldn’t be the first time Telltale has dived into the comic book genre. Not only is The Walking Dead based on the graphic novel series of the same name, but The Wolf Among Us was also based on Fables by Bill Willingham. However, it will be their first try at making a superhero-styled series. I am hopeful they are able to create the suspension and tension of not knowing what may be around the corner akin to their previous series. Although I admit some doubt that Telltale will be able to escape expectations of the setting and will be able to provide something that isn’t predictable minutes in.

There will be more information on BATMAN and Walking Dead Season 3 come E3 next weekend.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
