Ahead of its release next month, Telltale Games has revealed the story trailer for The Expanse: A Telltale Series to celebrate pre-orders being available to players. Pre-orders for both the Standard ($39.99) and Deluxe Editions ($44.99) are now live on the PlayStation Store, Xbox & the Epic Games Store.
Those who pre-order the game through the PlayStation Store and the Epic Games Store will receive 24-hour early access on every episode, while players who purchase the Deluxe edition will also receive DLC, which will be announced at a later date.
“With The Expanse: A Telltale Series, we wanted this to feel like a playable episode of the show with our favorite character Camina Drummer,” said Stephan Frost, the project’s game director. “Scavenging derelict ships, managing relationships with a tough crew, a mutiny, avoiding cutthroat space pirates, and a new zero g exploration gameplay has us very excited for players to get their hands on the game.”
Set prior to the events of the Amazon Prime Video series, players take on the role of Camina Drummer (played by actress Cara Gee in both the game and TV series), the XO of a scavenger crew on the hunt for a mysterious treasure on the edges of The Belt. As Drummer, players must deal 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.
Episode 1 of The Expanse: A Telltale Series will be launching on July 27 with the following four episodes being released every two weeks.
