News hit a few days back that “Batman: Arkham Knight,” the fourth (console) installment of the stellar Arkham games, had its release date pushed back to early next year. Well, if the following trailer is any indication, this baby is going to be well worth the wait!
Rocksteady has released more information about the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight game which is the final installment in the Arkham series. There are a lot of really cool thing that will be happening in this game that makes it just a bit different from the first two games.
The game starts about 12 months after Arkham City, with the Joker presumed dead and the Scarcrow is now in charge. The game will be introducing a new villain that Rocksteady says is original to their games.
This is a villain that we have never seen before but is described as being the Anti-Batman. We can look forward to battling a new villain in this game.
Some of the other changes is that we can now drive the Batmobile, that is rather awesome.
The Batmoblie has the tank look from Christopher Nolan’s Batman series so I am expecting a lot of great things from it. Also we will have more of Gotham to play with this time, the entire city has been built.
Since players will have all of Gotham to play with that should lead to a lot more fun moves, jumps, and flying. A few new moves have been created for the game such as grapple reversals and the ability to use gadgets while in the air. We will also be seeing Oracle for the first time in person instead of just over the com-link.
Kevin Conroy will be back as the voice of Batman, let’s be fair no one else should ever been the voice of Batman. The game will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
