Telltale Games considering Multiplayer Support for its game titles.
The studio widely known for their narrative video game titles that are based on popular media franchises and even other video games is now said to be working on multiplayer support for both old and new games.
While the terms “narrative gameplay” and “multiplayer support” do not usually come together, Telltale Games, indie developer of hit narrative-style adventure titles like The Walking Dead and Tales from the Borderlands, has revealed further plans of making it happen, both with their new and previously released products.
Starting it off with the Crowd Play function which will be made available in their upcoming Batman adaptation, a group players can now decide their desired choices for in-game decisions, whether through a majority vote, or single player override through the use of PC and device accessible URLs meaning that this function may require online connectivity.
The Crowd Play mode will not be limited to just a handful of people creating decisions on a single game as it is also reported that Crowd Play will be able to support more than 2,000 players through online access. In addition to Batman, other Telltale series adaptations such as The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Tales from the Borderlands and MineCraft: Story Mode is also bound to receive the Crowd Play functionality in the future, although that may depend on player feedback starting with the Batman Telltale Series.
The Batman Telltale Series will have its first episode set for launch this coming August 2, 2016 on Mobile, PC and Console platforms.
