Batman: The Enemy Within Premieres August 8th

Batman: The Enemy Within Premieres August 8th

Hey everyone! James Windeler here, Lead Writer on episode one of Batman: The Enemy Within. Just last year, we launched the first season of our series, offering an original take on the iconic hero and the characters around him. A few weeks ago at San Diego Comic-Con, we were thrilled to announce that our second season, Batman: The Enemy Within, will be premiering for download on August 8th!

Since we’ve revealed the game, we’ve made it no secret that we’re upping the ante with the number of villains we'll see. Our friends and partners at DC Comics have left the door open for Telltale to develop our own take on canon, and we love seeing how we can turn elements just enough on their heads to make this version of Batman our own. Just as in the first season, we take pride in giving our own spin on the classic villains, as well as Bruce and the Wayne family… as players found out early in our story that Bruce’s father was actually corrupt himself.

Canon EOS M20 Rumored For End Of August

Word on the street has it that Canon has a new mirrorless camera in the works. The company's mirrorless efforts haven't exactly been met with a lot of positive feedback, but that's why it's interesting and exciting to hear that they might have something new because it's an opportunity for the company to right any perceived wrongs or mistakes.

Now we have heard that there is a new mirrorless in the form of the EOS M20 that is scheduled to be announced on the 20th of July, but a new report from Canon Rumors is suggesting that the camera could actually be launched towards the end of August instead, or at least that's according to their source.

See How It All Began With Yakuza Kiwami, Out August 29

See How It All Began with Yakuza Kiwami, out August 29

The meaning of the Japanese word “Kiwami” is “extreme,” and I’d say it’s going to be a pretty extreme year for fans of Sega’s Yakuza games! I’m Scott Strichart, the localization producer for the series, and today we dropped some pretty rad news about Yakuza Kiwami, the upcoming PS4 remake that takes you back to where Yakuza all began in a from-scratch overhaul of the PS2 classic.

As we promised when we announced the game at PlayStation Experience last year, Yakuza Kiwami is coming to North America on August 29, 2017! And it’s going to be a pretty sweet deal. Yakuza 0, which we launched for PS4 earlier this year, was only a success because you — the fans — believed in it, so we’re really going all out for Kiwami as our way to say thank you.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Launching August 22, New Footage Released

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Launching August 22, New Footage Released

Since revealing Uncharted: The Lost Legacy at PSX, we’ve been hard at work building a story and an experience that joins a new protagonist, fan favorite Chloe Frazer, with all of the hallmarks of an Uncharted adventure. Today, we're excited to share new footage and additional details about the game — beginning with our release date. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will launch on August 22, 2017 in North America for $39.99 USD ($49.99 CAD).

In December we said that we're approaching this project as a true Uncharted game — complete with its own deep narrative with complex character development, all-new destinations, refined gameplay, and blockbuster cinematic moments. We're especially excited to have Chloe as our new protagonist and explore more of her story as she and Nadine venture across India in search of the fabled Tusk of Ganesh. To that end, we wanted to share a new scene from early on in the game as Chloe and Nadine try to unravel the clues leading to the Tusk's location. Watch it at the top of this post.
