The Expanse: A Telltale Series Announced

Telltale, the leading narrative game development studio and publisher, announced today that its upcoming episodic narrative adventure game, The Expanse: A Telltale Series, has been named an Official Selection for the 22nd Annual Tribeca Festival. Developed in conjunction with award-winning studio Deck Nine Games, The Expanse: A Telltale Series marks the first new Telltale title released since the company’s resurrection.

Telltale and Deck Nine will premiere all-new gameplay during the New York City-based festival, which runs June 7-18, and during the adjacent Digital Tribeca Festival Game showcase on June 9th. The Tribeca Festival is also hosting an in-person panel with the game’s development team on Saturday, June 10 at 4:30 PM ET. The Expanse: A Telltale Series will be available for hands-on play for ticket holders throughout the event and, as an Official Selection, the game is eligible for the 2023 Tribeca Festival Game Award.

The Tribeca Festival brings artists and diverse audiences together to celebrate storytelling in all its forms, including film, TV, VR, games, music, and online work. The Games program at the Tribeca Festival celebrates the convergence of games, entertainment, and culture, highlighting the storytelling, art, and innovation of games.

“We are thrilled to be a Tribeca Official Selection,” said Stephan Frost, the project’s game director. “The Expanse is an exceptional work of fiction and we at Deck Nine feel honored to have contributed to this universe in the video game medium.”

The Expanse: A Telltale Series is prior to the events of the popular TV series which is available to stream in its entirety on Amazon Prime. Players take on the role of Camina Drummer (played by actress Cara Gee in both the game and TV series), the leader of a scavenging crew on the hunt for a mysterious treasure on the edges of The Belt. As Drummer, players must work with a mix of powerful personalities, square off against a bloody mutiny, explore locations beyond The Belt, and, most of all, make tough decisions that will decide the fate of The Artemis crew.

Several new gameplay elements that go beyond what people experienced with past Telltale titles are introduced in The Expanse. 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.

“From the very start of development, our focus for The Expanse has been on the quality of the narrative and the opportunity to tell an incredible story filled with amazing characters that the player can participate in,” said Telltale CEO Jamie Ottilie. “Being named a Tribeca Festival Official Selection is the ultimate endorsement that we are on the right path, and we are honored to be included.”

The Expanse: A Telltale Series is expected to be released for PC and leading consoles in Summer, 2023. To learn more about The Expanse: A Telltale Series and the new Telltale Games, please visit www.Telltale.com.
