The Expanse Game Trailer
The trailer starts with the Artemis, a spaceship reaching Jupiter. A deep voice reveals the person they’re speaking with prominence, quoting their accomplishments. While several shots reveal dead crew members, a missile drifts through the ship toward an exit. As the suspense rises, Camina Drummer grabs the bullet from the air into her hand, which is exposed by the person speaking.
Following that, audiences are surprised with a clear shot of Cara Gee reprising her role as the popular Expanse character. Camina states that “truth is truth, how you deal with it is up to you Boss Man”. She says this before she opens the airlock and launches a man into space.
It was based on a series of novels by James S. A. Corey, which feature a big cast of colorful people who bring the space story to life. Several major characters are likely to show up in the game. However, only one of them may be featured.

Cara Gee plays Drummer, who shows up in 42 of the 58 episodes of the TV series currently available. In the future game, Gee also appears to be returning as a younger version of the strict XO.
What Would Be The Plot Of The Game?
“The Expanse” takes place hundreds of years in the future, when mankind has spread across the Solar System, spawning multiple military factions and governance systems that are all locked in a tense cold war. The teaser doesn’t reveal much about the game’s plot. Other than the truth that Drummer should not be treated as a toy, it is mentioned in the game’s description that Camina Drummer will be the commander of the ragtag gang in search of mysterious treasures out of the zone.
Players in the role of Drummer have a lot of tasks, like fighting blood mutiny, exploring regions outside of the zone, and, most significantly, making key decisions that determine the fate of the crew and the Artemis ship. A traditional technique of Telltale is making basic judgments that go awry. Put the gamer in a situation where everything feels like it’s a matter of life and death for the crew members.
