Telltale revealed the launch date of its next adaptation based on Amazon Prime’s The Expanse series. Episode 1 launches all major platforms — PlayStation 4/5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC via Epic Games Store — on July 27.
The Expanse: A Telltale Series puts players in the role of Camina Drummer, the XO of a scavenger ship in the asteroid belt. Actress Cara Gee reprises her role as Drummer from the TV series which concluded in January 2022. The game is a prequel to the show and will give fans new insight into the fan favorite character’s past.
As Drummer, players must manage their crew as they search The Belt for treasure. Like other Telltale titles, players will have to make difficult decisions that will change the story’s outcome.
The Expanse adaptation puts emphasis on immersive exploration. Players will scour shipwrecks, use mag boots to walk on walls and Zero-G thrusters to navigate wreck and open space.
