The Expanse: A Telltale Series Reveals New Gameplay Trailer With Staff Commentary; New Screenshots

During Gamescom 2022, Telltale, Deck Nine, and Alcon Interactive Group revealed a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming previously announced narrative choice-based adventure title, The Expanse: A Telltale Series.

Matt Saia, VP of creative for Telltale, shared the following comment regarding this new footage:

“The Expanse world is rich with complex characters that grow and change, so it’s a wellspring of compelling stories and difficult choices. Camina Drummer is a character who is strong but fair, with an unexplored background and tremendous story arc, so it was an easy choice to make her our main protagonist. Cara Gee brings the same powerful, nuanced portrayal of Drummer to the game that made the character a fan favorite in the show, and we think players will enjoy discovering this world from her perspective.”

Zak Garriss, vice president of narrative for Telltale Games, shared the following comment:

“In the end, this is a story about leadership. In Drummer’s mag boots, the player has to contend with the unforgiving brutality of space, the politics of a corrupt solar system, the animosities of her crew, and even her own conflicting passions balancing personal desire against her responsibility to the greater good. There is no right or wrong path – only the player’s choices and the consequences they unleash.”

Deck Nine’s game director, Stephan Frost, shared the following comment:

“Part of the space scavenger experience is exploring massive wrecks deep in the void, and gravity represents such a huge part of immersing people in that environment. In recreating that reality, we needed to make areas larger for players to discover and interact. As a result, The Expanse has the largest and most immersive exploration of any Telltale game to date.

Various screenshots were also provided, viewable via our gallery below:

The title is based on the show and book series of the same name, following a future where humanity has colonized the solar system and vast amounts of conspiracy and distrust wedge conflict between the organizations likely headed for war. Players can communicate with the crew via a radio and make story-defining choices.
