On the Telltale Forum they asked – What are you expecting for the new batman game?
I’m not really sure about what to expect from the new batman game because I’m not sure if it will be like the arkham series (combat and predator. Stuff like that) I’m hoping it’s not another joker game but I hope he has a little part in the story but ONLY a little part because I don’t think anyone really wants to see another joker game. I also hope that we get to see dick Grayson as robin and Barbara Gordon as batgirl and that they’re playable Characters and we can free roam as them. I think batmans allies (robin, batgirl, Catwoman) should all have a part in the story line and because you can choose what you say why not be able to choose which one of batmans allies do certain missions in the story line and I get that it’s a batman game so I think it would be good if we could do this at certain points in the game and if you don’t wanna play as different characters then just play as batman.

As for what this game can be like, it’s safe to safe that free roaming in this game is highly unlikely. Telltale games follow a generally linear plot, with your choices affecting how that goes (such as taking one road to the airport on a car vs. another road on a bus). Missions aren’t very likely, it isn’t something Telltale has done, although not impossible.
The only confirmed character is Bruce Wayne, who we are playing as. Here’s a nice quote about that.
““This iteration of Batman will give fans a first-hand opportunity to dive deeper into the complex life and mind of Bruce Wayne, the duality of his own identity, and the struggle of responsibility in saving a city overcome with corruption and villainy.””
Telltale games are a combination of QTEs and other and newer combat techniques such present in Minecraft: Story Mode. I’d recommend looking at any of the games released after the Walking Dead Season 1 to see so.
