'Back to the Future: Episode Two' launches on PC and Mac, PS3 starts catch-up
Thursday 17 February 2011
The second of five episodes in Telltale Games' new
Back To The Future video game is ready for PC and Mac users to download, while at the same time the PlayStation 3's Network Store receives the first episode.
"It's About Time" is available for PlayStation 3 users with a North American account, with other regions and an iPad version to follow, while "Get Tannen" gives PC and Mac players a headstart on foiling the plans of Marty McFly's family nemesis.
Rather than buying an episode at a time, players pay for all five episodes ($24.99 on Mac and PC, $19.99 on PS3) and then download them upon release.
While other developers are pursuing modern film tie-ins - as with Kung-Fu Panda, Toy Story 3, and Lego Pirates of the Caribbean - Telltale Games is happy to mine more nostalgic seams.
The studio tied up a deal with Universal, resulting in Back To The Future: The Video Game as well as the upcoming Jurassic Park five-parter.
