Announced by Telltale Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and DC Entertainment: episode five, ‘Same Stitch,’ the season finale of Batman: The Enemy Within will be released on March 27, 2018. Get ready for two possible Jokers!
While I’m sad about Batman: The Enemy Within coming to an end, I’m looking forward to the amazing story I’ll get to enjoy in the fifth and final episode ‘Same Stitch’ on March 27, 2018. The episode will launch simultaneously for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and mobile platforms.
“What 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, the choices players have made over the course of the season will determine which story — and which version of The Joker — they’ll see in the finale. 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 character.
‘Same Stitch’ will have three and a half hours of playable content which has been spread across two “completely distinct storylines that share, at most, only three overlapping scenes.”
Each of the scenes in the final episode includes “further conditional variations that reflect players’ earlier choices.” These variations will play a role in making the finale “mathematically, Telltale’s branchiest episode ever.” There are a total of 4,500 lines of dialogue which have been “divided among 38 characters, the overall script for the episode is larger than Christopher Nolan’s entire Dark Knight trilogy.”
“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.”
Considering the choices I’ve made, I think I’ll be seeing the vigilante version of the Joker in the finale. Let’s see what happens on March 27, 2018.
