Batman: Arkham Knight

Recommended Posts


UPDATE: As expected, Batman: Arkham Knight is on the cover of the next issue of US magazine Game Informer.

In a brief video, members of the Rocksteady development team discuss the game, the final entry in the Arkham series.

Arkham Knight is set one year after the events of Arkham City, game director Sefton Hill said. Batman is at the peak of his powers, but he's up against all of Gotham's bad guys who are teaming up to take him down. Enemies mentioned were Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn.

Arkham Knight is set in a bigger Gotham City, with wider streets perfect for driving the Batmobile around in. "We've known it's what people want," Hill said. "It refreshes the whole experience."

Hill continued: "This is the natural end for the story. We really want to go out in style."

The game is due out later this year on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

ORIGINAL STORY: The bat seems to be out of the bag: Rocksteady's new Batman game will be Arkham Knight.

That's according to a listing on major UK retailer GAME, which has since been pulled (but immortalised on NeoGAF).

Arkham Knight was listed for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and carried a "TBC 2014" release date.

The game is to be a finale for the celebrated Arkham Series that Rocksteady created. Most exciting of all, it appears to feature a driveable Batmobile, with which to explore the presumably open world of Gotham City.

A pre-order bonus was the ability to play as Harley Quinn in exclusive Challenge Maps.





Excited! :D

Looks class that. I only have Arkham city but really enjoyed that (only got up to helping Bane with something, can't remember what it was), might have to go back and clock it.

As soon as they moved out from the first game, they should have moved into labelling the games "Gotham". Aside from that, this is all convincing me to go next-gen in the summer. Origins was shit like but this is Rocksteady's big dogs so I have hope.

Cant wait for this, one of my favorite series. Hoping to see a lot of Scarecrow in it as he's my favorite villain. Praying to God they don't have the Joker or Bane in it, after 3 consecutive games of them being the main villains it got boring. I wanna see new characters and stories!
