Telltale Games is introducing multiplayer elements into it’s story-driven adventures, reports Shacknews.
The point-and-click titles have historically only featured a single-player experience, and the upcoming Batman: The Telltale Series will be the first game to include a new multiplayer feature.
Titled Crowd Play, this new multiplayer mechanic will allow family, friend and large audiences to interact with the single-player story from a spectator perspective.
Telltale has stated that all upcoming Telltale games will feature this new multiplayer experience.
Audience members can vote on story decisions and display their approval or disapproval at the character’s choices.
After turning on Crowd Play, a URL will be generated which the player shares with their audience, who can then enter the URL into a web browser and interact with the game.
This new feature holds great promise for both streamers with large audiences and friends who want to enjoy Telltale’s experiences together.
Batman: The Telltale Series is set to release on 2 August 2016.
