Fancy a game of poker with some stars? Gaming stars of course, but if you’ll be playing against some wily greats of the gaming universe you’d want to make sure it’s all fair play so why not have GLaDOS do the honours when shuffling the deck?

No don’t worry, I haven’t taken a massive blow to the head not is this one of those April fools pranks that the online media love so much (really Meggan Scavio? really?) Telltale games have in fact announced a sequel to Poker Night at the Inventory.

Poker Night 2 will put you in the shoes of the 5th (unseen) player, in a poker tournament featuring some great characters including Claptrap from Gearbox Software’s critically acclaimed Borderlands along with Brock Samson from Adult Swim’s animated series The Venture Bros, Sam from the Sam & Max video game and comic book series by Steve Purcell and Ash Williams from the cult classic Evil Dead series.

Poker Night 2 will also give you the chance to win ‘Bounty Unlocks’ which shower you with gifts to use in some of the partnered games, if you can match wits and cunning with your opponents at the table that its. The prizes include exclusive skins and heads for use within Borderlands 2, character accessories for Team Fortress 2 and unique Xbox 360 Avatar Items.

“It’s great to revisit our roots after the success of The Walking Dead. People might not know that we have a strong history of humor in our games and players are going to find a lot of laughs in Poker Night 2, Poker Night 2 is another example of our ability to work with phenomenal partners and bring great characters to life in the gaming universe.”
