Today Telltale Games announced a sequel to their crossover card game Poker Night. Poker Night 2 will let players sit at a card table with Claptop from Borderlands, Brock Samson from The Venture Bros., Sam from Sam and Max and Army of Darkness' Ash Williams.
The most famous character in the game is the dealer. GLaDOS, the murderous A.I. from the Portal series, will be passing out the cards. Presumably she'll dole out a few insults throughout the evening as well.
By playing the game, players will unlock rewards for use in other titles. They'll earn skins and heads for Borderlands 2, accessories for Team Fortress 2, PS3 premium themes, and Xbox 360 Avatar items.
Poker Night 2's predecessor was released back in 2010. Poker Night at the Inventory allowed gamers to take on the role of Max of Sam & Max, Strong Bad from Homestar Runner, Tycho from Penny Arcade, and the Heavy class from Team Fortress 2. Players were able to earn special TF2 items through skillful gambling.
Telltale plans to release Poker Night 2 in late April on PSN, PC, and Xbox Live. Other platforms are under consideration as well.
