WB Games Announce Batman: Arkham Knight

March 5, 2014

Warner Bros have today announced a brand new Batman game, the third to be helmed by Rocksteady Studios, titled Batman: Arkham Knight – to be released in later this year for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The news comes via Game Informer, who are featuring the game in their April 2014 issue. The setup for the game is that following the events of Arkham City, the Scarecrow unites members of Batman’s rogues gallery for one simple mission – take down the Batman. Rocksteady have also confirmed that there’s a new threat for Batman in the game, the aforementioned “Arkham Knight”, created specifically for the game. The biggest feature that WB and Rocksteady are touting is that not only is the game world much larger than in Arkham City (reportedly five times as big, divided into three areas), but you’ll be able to drive the Batmobile around to help navigate through Gotham City. The Batmobile also plays into redesigned Riddler Challenges, where you’ll also be tackling racing based challenges in addition to what we’ve come to expect from the previous games in the series. Additionally, there will not be any multiplayer in Arkham Knight. Finally, pre-ordering the game will allow players to play as Harley Quinn in a series of exclusive challenge maps.

Speaking on the game, Sefton Hill, the game director at Rocksteady: “We’re excited to be developing the game for next-gen platforms, which has allowed us to bring to life the design elements that we envisioned from the beginning such as the Batmobile and how it augments Batman’s abilities, to the fully detailed and realized Gotham City.”

Batman: Arkham Knight is the third Batman game to be developed by Rocksteady, following 2009′s Batman: Arkham Asylum and 2011′s Batman: Arkham City.
