Telltale Games have announced Poker Night 2, the “unnecessary sequel” to 2010’s PC-exclusive Poker Night at the Inventory, for PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and PC.
Due out later this month (“late April”), players will take the fifth seat at a poker table comrpised of “all-star” characters Claptrap (Borderlands), Brock Samson (The Venture Bros.), Sam (Sam & Max), and Ash Williams (Army of Darkness). GLaDOS (Portal) will deal in your choice of Texas Hold ‘Em and Omaha poker.
Poker Night 2 will offer players the chance to win rewards for use within other games called “Bounty Unlocks.” Prizes include “exclusive skins and heads ” for Borderlands 2, “character accessories” for Team Fortress 2 (PC-only), Xbox 360 Avatar items, or PlayStation 3 premium themes.
“It’s great to revisit our roots after the success of The Walking Dead. People might not know that we have a strong history of humor in our games and players are going to find a lot of laughs in Poker Night 2,” said Dan Connors, Telltale CEO and Co-Founder, adding “Poker Night 2 is another example of our ability to work with phenomenal partners and bring great characters to life in the gaming universe.”
