In honor of the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, Telltale Games is bringing their classic Back to the Future the Game to all the major console platforms. That’s right, you can help Marty fix the time stream, but don’t worry, this isn’t a rehash of the movies, the entire game takes place after the movies and features all new material.Here’s the game’s synopsis and trailer:
In Back to the Future: The Game, six months after the events of Back to the Future Part III, the DeLorean Time Machine mysteriously returns to Hill Valley – driverless! Now, Marty must go back to 1931 to recruit the help of a reluctant teenage Emmett Brown in order to save 1985’s Doc from certain death. Can they repair the rifts of the past without accidentally erasing the future?
Looks pretty sweet doesn’t it? You can get the game digitally and off store shelves starting October 13th for $24.88.
Back to the Future: The Game – 30th Anniversary Edition features textures that take full advantage of current-generation console capabilities, and updated voice work from Biff Tannen’s original movie actor, Tom Wilson. This edition also includes in-game access to new, exclusive content: a behind the scenes video featuring interviews with movie trilogy co-writer and producer Bob Gale, original movie cast member Tom Wilson, members of the development team, and AJ LoCascio – the voice of young Marty McFly.
For those of you old school PC gamers like myself, I have already checked and Steam currently has the original game for sale ($24.99). While the 30th anniversary game isn’t listed in their upcoming games, I would find it surprising if the PC version wasn’t updated for the 30th anniversary as well.
