From Press Release:

SAN DIEGO – MONDAY, JULY 24, 2023 – Telltale, the leading narrative game development studio and publisher, today revealed Archangel, a bonus episode for The Expanse: A Telltale Series.

The bonus episode stars Shohreh Aghdashloo, reprising her role as Chrisjen Avasarala, Secretary-General of the United Nations in The Expanse. Archangel is a completely different take on The Expanse: A Telltale Series, where players will experience a fateful day in the life of Chrisjen Avasarala by managing conflicts across the solar system and battling wits with rival politicians, all while navigating family drama on a day that will change her life forever.

Archangel launches this Fall and is included in The Deluxe Edition or purchasable separately.

Additionally, the fifth and final behind-the-scenes video, ‘Building The Belt’ has been released. The video series is designed to give fans of both Telltale and The Expanse unprecedented access to the game’s development. The other videos feature discussions about how the narrative for The Expanse: A Telltale Series was designed, how the game fits into the broader Expanse canon, and conversations with some of the Lead developers on the project.

Telltale, the leading narrative game development studio and publisher, recently announced that Episode 1 of The Expanse: A Telltale Series would be launching on July 27, 2023. The following four episodes will be releasing every two weeks, allowing players to experience the exciting universe of The Expanse like never before.

Pre-orders for both the Standard ($39.99) and Deluxe Editions ($44.99) are live now. Players who pre-order will receive 24-hour early access*, while players who purchase the Deluxe edition will also receive the Archangel bonus episode.

The first new IP announced by Telltale since the company re-formed in 2019, The Expanse: A Telltale Series is set prior to the events of Alcon Television Group’s critically acclaimed and award-winning television series which streams on Amazon Prime Video. 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. Scour shipwrecks, use mag boots to walk on walls and ceilings, and utilize Zero-G thrusters to float through sections of ships and the open expanse of space in the largest and most immersive exploration of any Telltale game to date.
