It’s time to put on the mask once again, as the third episode of TellTale Games second season of Batman – The Enemy Within has arrived on Steam. The episode is called “Fractured Mask“, and will delve even deeper into the dilemma that both Bruce Wayne and Batman find themselves in. The second season has gone to great lengths to break the familiarity fans may have with the Batman universe, and that doesn’t look to be changing here, as things get darker, and much more dangerous.
For in this episode, the return of Catwoman (who hasn’t been seen since the end of season 01) only brings more complications to Bruce Wayne, who’s still trying to earn The Pact’s trust long enough to take them down. What’s more, The Pact has stolen back Riddler’s body, and who knows what Harley Quinn and the others are going to use it for. And you know there’s going to be twists and turns along the way that will force you to make tough calls.
Add to the mix that there’s still a power struggle going on between Commissioner Gordon and Amanda Waller, Tanya Fox is very suspicious of you after recent events involving the loss of her father, and oh yeah, the Joker is still here, and he’s starting to turn more and more into his classic form.
What makes Batman – The Enemy Within so special though is that you help make the narrative, you get to choose who Bruce Wayne and Batman are at your core. And especially within this series, that matters, as your relationships and choices will be dependent on the moves you make within each episode, for better or for worse.
If you haven’t caught up on the series yet, don’t sweat it, you can get the entire season so far in one purchase, then be read when the next two episodes drop in the upcoming months.
