Building on last week’s full season trailer, Telltale Games has shared two new trailers dedicated specifically to the fifth and final episode of Batman: The Enemy Within.
Watch the Batman: The Enemy Within ‘The Joker Villain or Vigilante’ Trailers:
Episode five contains two separate storylines and two possible versions of The Joker, so each of these trailers focuses on a different potential experience. The choices players have made over the course of the season will determine which story – and which version of The Joker – they ultimately see in the finale.
‘Same Stitch’ launches Tuesday, March 27 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and mobile. You can download both episode five trailers – as well as screenshots, key art, and the full season trailer – by following the links above. More information about the upcoming finale, including the official episode description, appears below:
“Who 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?”
As the description indicates, Same Stitch features two totally separate takes on the fully evolved John Doe: one a ruthless villain that hews closer to the classic Clown Prince of Crime and the other an unpredictable vigilante that’s unlike any other portrayal of DC’s iconic Super-Villain.
In total, Same Stitch contains three and a half hours of content spread across two completely distinct storylines that share, at most, only three overlapping scenes. Each of those storylines includes further conditional variations that reflect players’ earlier choices and make Same Stitch, mathematically, Telltale’s “branchiest” episode ever.
“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.”
