Telltale made an appearance at the Gamescom Opening Night Live Show today giving a first look at the gameplay of The Expanse: A Telltale Series. The title was first announced at The Game Awards in 2021 when Telltale revealed it partnered award-winning development studio, Deck Nine, and Alcon Interactive Group.

“The Expanse world is rich with complex characters that grow and change, so it’s a wellspring of compelling stories and difficult choices,” said Matt Saia, vp of creative for Telltale. “Camina Drummer is a character who is strong but fair, with an unexplored background and tremendous story arc, so it was an easy choice to make her our main protagonist. Cara Gee brings the same powerful, nuanced portrayal of Drummer to the game that made the character a fan favorite in the show, and we think players will enjoy discovering this world from her perspective.”

The Expanse introduces several new gameplay elements that go beyond what people experienced with past Telltale games. Players have greater authority over the action. The ability to communicate with the crew over radio at the player’s discretion keeps the plot and dialogue choices moving forward simultaneously with the player’s exploration, and all those character interactions affect the story’s conclusion.

The Expanse: A Telltale Series will be launching in the Summer of 2023 on PC and leading consoles.
