With excitement building for Batman v Superman, Telltale studios have announced that their highly anticipated Batman game would use an updated version of their engine.
Telltale co-founder Kevin Bruner, speaking at the South by Southwest panel, said the following about the updated engine, “We’ve got a whole lot of new technology that’s going in that you’ll start to see in Batman, and Telltale games going forward […] We have a bunch of new engineers that have been working on rendering technology – non-photorealistic rendering technology […] but it’s really cool, very much upgraded from the kinds of things that you’ve seen from Telltale in the past […] It’s still a Telltale game, so it’ll be evolved from what you’ve seen before, but I think a more significant step than you’ve seen from any of our products in the past.”
In recent years, fans have been asking and hoping that Telltale would update their aging engine, and this would be a step in the right direction. Telltale’s new Batman game will allow players to control both Bruce Wayne and the Batman.
I’m really looking forward to this game and, with Telltale’s track record, I’m sure that it will turn out great.
