Published On August 17, 2016 | By Kirk Hiner | iPhone/iPad

Another franchise is getting the Telltale Games treatment, of sorts, with the announcement that Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltratiOn is now available for iOS and Android. Telltale is publishing the game, with development being handled by Night School Studio in collaboration with Universal Cable Productions (UCP).

mr robotAn extension of the TV show’s narrative, Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltratiOn offers a unique way for fans to become personally intertwined with the characters of the underground hacker group, fsociety.

Players will be using the mysterious new E Corp Messaging App over the course of a week, playing in real time, and carefully communicating with its members as they race to recover data that is critical to their goals of hacking the multinational company Evil Corp.

At this point, Telltale has become so widely known and loved for the style of their games that gamers flock to them regardless of the franchise tie-in. Said gamers should have no fears about Telltale’s publishing role with Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltratiOn, according to Steve Allison, SVP, Publishing at Telltale Games. “There’s a distinct Telltale style to all of the character interactions that our fans will find familiar, and fans of the show will be engrossed all through the night as they race to help fsociety pull off the unthinkable.”

Oh, and a little more on that, in case you haven’t seen the show:

MR. ROBOT follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who becomes involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their mysterious leader (Christian Slater). Following the events of fsociety’s five/nine hack on multi-national company Evil Corp, the second season explores the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control.

Mr. Robot:1.51exfiltratiOn is available now for $2.99 in the iOS App Store. For more information, visit telltale.com.
