How far will you go? Which mask will you wear?”
If you’ve been waiting until all episodes were released, now may be a good time to jump in. Batman – The Telltale Series Episode 1: Realm of Shadow is currently free to download for PC on Steam. The press release takes care to mention a performance patch that has updated the game since its rocky launch earlier this year.
The adventure series is also available in physical format. The disc only includes the first episode, with a Season Pass that unlocks the other four via download.

Episode 5 is rated M for Mature for Violence, Blood and Gore, and Language.
