Telltale Games has announced its video game adaptation of The Expanse will begin on 27th July 2023 for PS5, PS4. The game will be split across five episodes, with one released every two weeks, meaning the full series will be complete by 24th August 2023. Pre-orders will go live on 1st June 2023 for a standard version and a Deluxe Edition, with the former offering 24 hours of early access and the latter containing bonus DLC that'll be revealed at a later date.
Cara Gee returns to reprise her role as Camina Drummer, who "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". The game is set before the events of the TV show, so you don't need any knowledge of the Amazon Prime series in order to play. It'll cost $39.99 for the base game.
On the official Telltale Games website, it's said: "Thank you. We wouldn’t be here without you. We wouldn’t be able to keep telling these amazing stories without your support. As a new studio rebuilding, your faith and giving us the chance to make more games means the world to us."
Made by Life Is Strange: True Colors developer Deck Nine Games, this is the first new IP from Telltale Games since it was reformed in 2019. Are you excited for this narrative-focused trip to space? Get your space suit ready for launch in the comments below.
Stupid release strategy.
Love the books. Love the tv series. Day 1 for me.
@PSme a whopping 62 episodes start when .. I invest in better surround. Expansive no less
Had never heard of The Expanse. I have now gained intelligence +1.
@LiamCroft Isn't The Expanse a Prime show not Netflix?
It's been sitting in my watchlist for ages waiting for me to start watching. Still it's good to know this is before should I decide to play it.
@BearsEatBeets You're right, thanks!
“27th July 2023 for PS5, PS4. The game will be split across five episodes, with one released every two weeks, meaning the full series will be complete by 24th August 2023.” How can this be? That’s less than four weeks that’s only three episodes? Just wondering?
Love the TV show!
I really like the show and Drummer so might even get this without waiting for a sale when all episodes are out and if it gets good reviews
I'll likely wait until they all come out to get this, but given how much I loved Life is Strange: True Colors and highly enjoyed older Telltale games I played (still have to play The Walking Dead), I'm already sold even though I never watched the TV show.
Events in game take place before the tv series. Yeah, that’s pretty boring. Just the belt, earth and Mars. Lame.
@PSme Me too, on all counts! (And I love your N7 avatar, too!)
Drummer is 1 of the best characters and she has a past so this might be worth a watch on YouTube.
@FuriousMachine thank you 🙏
@Vacuumator The Expanse is a Syfy channel TV series that was canceled early.
Amazon Prime rescued it and kept it going until Season 6.

Loved the show but never read the books although I have the first book.
