Telltale is known for choice-driven storytelling, and yet, the first trailer for The Expanse focuses entirely on the action. As the XO Camina drummer keeps an eye on his rebel crew, he will also be tasked with navigating the ruins of a fallen ship on the outskirts of an asteroid belt.
The trailer shows Drummer walking the space, dodging debris, and working his way through the larger ship. We also see him taking a punch and a scuffle with someone in zero gravity. To bring this beloved science-fiction universe to life, Telltale enlisted the development talents of Deck Nine (best known for the Life is Strange series). The first pre-alpha footage looks ambitious and dark, providing a cinematic perspective on a death-laden investigation. The facial animations on the characters also look like an evolution from Telltale’s previous work, yet some similar facial features look similar.
The Expanse is expected to release in the summer of 2023.
