The fourth and penultimate episode of Telltale's Batman: The Enemy Within, titled 'What Ails You', will be released on January 23 - two weeks from today. It'll see Bruce Wayne's cover being blown, and 'John Doe' taking a big step towards becoming the Joker.
Here's Telltale's synopsis of the 4th episode:
"When the Pact puts its plan into motion, Bruce's cover is finally blown, and as his web of lies unravels, new questions emerge: When and how will the Pact regroup? What's truly motivating Amanda Waller and the Agency? And perhaps most importantly, how will John Doe handle the truth about his buddy Bruce? With another showdown brewing, the clown prince of crime may finally earn his crown..."
In our review of Episode 3 'Fractured Mask', we said that it "isn’t the most eventful episode, but it’s still fun, all the characters are clashing wonderfully, and it’s fun waiting for the hammer to fall and your choices to bite you hard", adding "which will probably happen in Episode 4". Episode 3 was definitely the calm before the storm, so we've got high expectations for Episode 4 - and the certainty that things are about to go very badly in Gotham.
When the previous episode was announced in November it was dampened by the news that 90 employees at Telltale lost their jobs. Hopefully nothing like that will happen here. We're also hoping the quality of Telltale's output doesn't dip, because so far Batman: The Enemy Within has been one of their finest games.
We'll have a review of 'What Ails You' around January 23 - hopefully before.
