Telltale Games did a terrific job with The Walking Dead series, a story-driven tale that relied heavily on players’ choices. Their next project stars the famous Dark Knight in Batman: The Telltale Series. Much similar to Telltale’s previous games, this title is pretty straight forward, but highly re-playable since you’ll want to see every scenario based on your decisions.  

This Batman: The Telltale Series walkthrough begins with the first episode, Realm of Shadows. The walkthrough is based on the majority of choices we made. However, we’ll mention the crucial decisions that seemingly have an impact on the story as it progresses. Lastly, since Episode 1 is broken into chapters, the walkthrough covers each chapter separately.

OK, it’s time to be the Batman!

Tips for Batman: The Telltale Series

  • Save your game in multiple slots (the game gives you five), an obvious tip that worked for The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead. You’ll want to replay each chapter multiple times to witness alternative events.
  • The Batman Gauge: The Batman icon on the bottom left of the screen works as a gauge that increases or depletes based on your successful encounters in battles and button prompts. When you max the meter, it’ll be fully red, allowing you execute a stronger attack known as the Finishing Blow.
  • Like previous Telltale games, even if you miss some on-screen prompts, the game basically does it for you. That’s not to say be lazy – in some scenarios, you can actually die or fail in the chapter. It’s still entertaining to watch, however.
  • Similar to the Walking Dead, we noticed that if you fail to select a choice when speaking to characters, the game picks one for you. This sort of ruins the experience of the game, so be sure to answer each choice under the time limit.
