One of the big news of the week was the announcement of Batman: The Telltale Series that it will have a multiplayer mode for up to 2,000 players which will allow us to make decisions together with our friends.
The new massive multiplayer introduced in Batman: The Telltale Series is definitely a great way to give new life to the company Telltale Games.
Many people rubbed their hands thinking about playing the game and thus making broadcasts via Twitch, but now the company wanted to clarify that this method is designed to be played by users who are viewing on the same screen only.
As explained from Telltale, this is because Twitch latency is too high to allow Crowd Play (the name of this multiplayer mode) to be an enjoyable experience.
“Crowd Play is not a feature intended for use over streaming services. There is latency introduced by services such as Twitch. This means that everyone isn’t seeing that game at the exact same time, which means that everyone doesn’t see the choices at the same time. The group can’t make a choice together at the same time.”
The first five episodes of Batman: The Telltale Series will arrive on August 2 via a digital release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC, iOS, Android, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
