Telltale Games and co-developer Deck Nine Games (the Life is Strange series) have announced The Expanse: A Telltale Series.
While both co-developers TellTale Games and Deck Nine Game are collaboratively making The Expanse: A Telltale Series, neither a release date nor release platforms were announced at this time.
Set hundreds of years in the future and based on the Amazon TV show of the same name (which is also based on the novel series by James S.A. Corey, the pen name of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck), the game sees our solar system colonized by mankind. As the human species has dominated the galaxy, three factions arise: “Earthers,” “Martians,” and “Belters,” and tensions begin to rise. The TV series is entering its sixth and final season.
“One of our driving forces is to empower other creative voices to tell their stories in the manner of previous genre-defining Telltale games,” said Jamie Ottilie, CEO of Telltale. “We are such fans of the work Deck Nine has done and were searching for an IP we could create stories in together. The Expanse is a rich world both studios are really excited to explore.”
“Working with a fantastic IP like The Expanse is both daunting and thrilling,” said Jeff Litchford, COO for Deck Nine. “We wanted to pick a character and story that hadn’t already been told – one that players could really influence but that also stayed true to the books and series for the fans. The collaboration with Telltale has enabled us to bounce around ideas and approach things from the different perspectives each company brings to the adventure genre as we work to tell the best story possible.”
Here’s a brief synopsis of the game:
In the near future on the outskirts of the asteroid belt, a bloody mutiny breaks loose on the Artemis. You take the role of XO Camina Drummer, where your choices determine the fate of the ship. What will you do with the truth, Bosmang?
