The Caped Crusader is going episodic.

A trailer unveiled at The Game Awards today revealed Telltale’s Batman. It’s coming out in 2016 for consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices.

Telltale is known for making episodic, narrative driven games like The Walking Dead. The reveal trailer showed a series of black and white images similar to a comic book, while a narrator explained a city overcome with crime and violence.

“At Telltale, we’ve been honored to bring our unique approach to interactive storytelling to some of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be exploring what it means to be Batman in an all-new series starting next year,” said Kevin Bruner, co-founder and chief executive officer of Telltale Games in a blog post on the company’s site. “This iteration of Batman will give fans a first-hand opportunity to dive deeper into the complex life and mind of Bruce Wayne, the duality of his own identity, and the struggle of responsibility in saving a city overcome with corruption and villainy.”
