Telltale Games announces ‘Poker Night 2’


Poker Night 2, the sequel to the 2010 oddity Poker Night at the Inventory, has been announced. Much like the original game, Poker Night 2 will pit players against a unique cast of characters in a game of Texas Hold ‘Em.

This time around Brock Sampson from The Venture Brothers, Sam from Sam and Max, Ash from the Evil Dead series, and Claptrap from Borderlands will lend their comedic stylings. To finish off the pile of fan service, GlaDOS of Portal fame will be dealing every match.

Telltale went on to explain that the game will have “Bounty Unlocks,” which are rewards granted outside of the game. These will range from Team Fortress 2 items, to 360 avatar gear, to premium themes for your PS3.

And before you go screaming about how this is an April Fools joke, evidence of Poker Night 2 existed before today. Items corresponding to the new characters were found in a recent update for TF2, and a teaser site was made during the week before the announcement.

Poker Night 2 is currently scheduled for release on PC, PSN, and XBLA. Expect it later this month.
