The new series will take place in modern-day Gotham, but will not be tied to any existing adaptation of Batman in comics, films, or games. The story will focus on both Bruce Wayne and Batman, with player decisions shaping the city Bruce encounters in daylight, and the criminals Batman encounters at night.

"Each night, Bruce Wayne chooses to change Gotham for the better. The team wants to explore what the consequences are of the player’s actions when decisions made as Bruce have a critical impact on his nightly crusade as Batman, and vice versa. Certain key situations will give the player the decision to approach a scene as Bruce or Batman with consequences for both sides."

Though Telltale is not extending the series' initial coverage to Robin, Nightwing, etc., key secondary characters in the Batman series will be featured, including: Alfred, James Gordon, Vicki Vale, and Renee Montoya. Characters will be affected by the player's choices made as Bruce or Batman which will alter "their paths towards corruption or redemption."

Telltale is keeping a lid on any information regarding the series' potential villains until closer to the premiere slated for this summer.

The production team has been focusing on story and script over the last year, so no visuals accompanied the announcement, but the series will feature a "non-photorealistic interpretation of the universe ... to deliver a more seamless living comic book art direction."

Batman will be rated M (Mature 17+), with the cinematic approach reportedly feeling more akin to an R-rated film.
