Wealth of new Poker Night media

As reported back at the beginning of September, Telltale are producing a poker game featuring Max, Strong Bad, Tycho and the Heavy. Telltale have upped the ante with the release of a whole host of new media for your consumption.

Firstly is Poker Night‘s tie-in with Team Fortress 2. When pre-ordering the game through Telltale or Steam, you’ll receive a poker visor for the Heavy to wear in TF2. Also, winning “special item rounds” in Poker Night will unlock further loot in Valve’s stylised shooter. These are Max’s Lugermorph handgun and Freelance Police badge, Tycho’s Enthusiast timepiece, Strong Bad’s Dangeresque shades and the Heavy’s Iron Curtain gun.

A trailer was also put out, highlighting the four different characters on show and their respective voice actors; Andrew Chaikin (Max in Culture Shock) in the case of Tycho, who has never been voiced in previous video game appearances. You can see that below in the full post.

That’s a wrap! Head over to the official Poker Night website for all the information you’d ever need and grab the game, due to be released this month, for a smooth $4.95.
