The first episode of the Back to the Future adventure game series will be available for PC and Mac from next Wednesday, December 22nd, developer Telltale Games has confirmed.
The game, which follows on from the near $1 billion grossing film trilogy first released 25 years ago, will launch with the opening episode ‘It’s About Time’ this month with four further playable episode downloads set to arrive early next year. February, March and April will see episodes titled ‘Get Tannen!’, ‘Citizen Brown’ and ‘Double Visions’ respectively before the finale episode dubbed ‘OUTATIME’ lands on a currently undisclosed date.
"We're very excited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Back to the Future franchise with a completely new adventure", said Dan Connors CEO of Telltale Games. He went on to add: "It's been an amazing experience to be part of reuniting Marty McFly and Doc Brown on their continuing quest. Back to the Future fans will have a great time helping to control the integrity of the space-time continuum".
Whilst the first episode can be downloaded free of charge, the full five episode series is available for pre-ordered now for $24.95 with a collector’s DVD and free copy of the Puzzle Agents game. UK pricing has yet to be revealed.
