Telltale Games

Telltale Games is planning to have a big year in 2015, and it all begins with the announcement of a new CEO. Co-founder Kevin Bruner has taken over the role of CEO, replacing fellow co-founder Dan Connors. Former CEO Connors will remain at Telltale in his new executive advisor role.

In a statement, Connors talked about his new role as well as Telltale's progress as a company. "2014 marked our tenth consecutive year of continued growth since co-founding Telltale with Kevin Bruner in 2004. In that time, we've been incredibly proud to have accomplished so much with some of the most talented people in entertainment." Bruner also released a statement, elaborating on what's next for Telltale. "Our top priority is to continue fostering an environment where the most talented and creative storytellers in the industry are working side by side with the world's biggest creative partners."

Bruner also talked about future Telltale projects, stating that beyond the games we already know about there are also "unannounced partnerships" and an original IP on the way. Telltale has become famous for its episodic games adapted from licensed franchises, including there current Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands series, so an original IP will be a big change of pace. With so many games in development, it sounds like the future will be bright for both Telltale and its fans.

Telltale's Game of Thrones will follow five playable characters

A Game of Thrones Xbox

Telltale Games' upcoming Game of Thrones adventure will follow the stories of five different playable characters, reports International Business Times after speaking with Senior VP of Publishing Steve Allison. The characters will be from the same family, so the choices you make with each character will directly affect the others. Allison promises it "adds a whole new layer to things that we're really excited about."

"We always will evolve our story telling toolkit from game to game based on the needs of each franchise and the creative decisions we've made," says Allison. "For example, Tales from the Borderlands adds multi-protagonist storytelling for us layered into the tailored narrative design established with The Walking Dead and it works amazingly well with two playable characters."

Telltale's Game of Thrones is on track to debut its first episode before the end of 2014 alongside the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands. While it takes most inspiration from the show, Telltale teased some deeper lore from the novels to have some role in their series.

The Walking Dead: Season Two review (Xbox One)

The Walking Dead: Season Two was developed and published by Telltale Games. It was released on Friday, October 31 2014 for $25. A copy was provided for review purposes.


In the end, nobody is safe from the shambling, moaning hordes of undead which populate The Walking Dead’s dystopian alternate reality. Not the characters, the fans or the general public. Robert Kirkman has created a rich and culturally pervasive lore. It was inevitable that Telltale Games extremely popular The Walking Dead series of episodic interactive stories would appear on Microsoft's Xbox One console sooner or later.

TWD:S2 picks up directly where Season One ended. Players assume the role of Clementine as she continues her journey towards adolescence in an increasingly dangerous and challenging world. The Xbox One version of TWD:S2 has been released as a complete package, which is great news for anyone as impatient as me. Let's jump in and see if this version is worth your hard earned cash.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 will release episodically on Xbox in 2015

Capcom's Resident Evil Revelations 2 for Xbox One

Capcom has announced that it will release Resident Evil Revelations 2 on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in early 2015.

At least, that's when it will begin releasing the game. Breaking from franchise tradition, the sequel will adopt an episodic release format and will be split up into four digital episodes available for $5.99 each. It's a release format perhaps best known to gamers thanks to another game franchise that pits humans against zombies: The Walking Dead. For its part, Capcom claims that this format is an evolution of the original Revelations' chapters format, though those chapters were sold together as a single release.

The publisher will release Resident Evil Revelations 2's episodes one week at a time before making the entire game available as a single digital release that will include some sort of additional content for $24.99. A retail version is also planned for a later date, and it will feature even more exclusive content at an MSRP of $39.99. Capcom promises that each episode "will feature hours of terrifying gameplay ending with dramatic cliff-hangers."

Revelations 2 will put players in control of series mainstay Claire Redfield and task them with confronting the horrors of Redfield's past. Joining her in the sequel is Moira Burton, who, along with Redfield, has been captured and must find out who took them and why.

The Walking Dead will release in October next month, with The Wolf Among Us following in November.  Players who have played the Xbox 360 or PC editions of these games likely won't find a compelling reason to upgrade, but for players who missed out on these games in the previous generation of consoles, this revival of the adventure genre will come as a welcome addition to the ever-growing library of titles available on Xbox One.
