Batman: Arkham Knight Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Batman: Arkham Knight

Rocksteady Studios has announced that their next title will be Batman: Arkham Knight, slated for release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 platforms. The announcement was originally made at GameInformer in an article revealing their April cover. Rocksteady is the team that brought the freeflow combat system to the Batman universe back in 2009 and also built the open world game, Batman: Arkham City. This game will take place after the events in Arkham City, with the report stating that this game might end Batman’s journey in the Arkham storyline.


From the upcoming cover, Batman is pictured with the Batmobile in the background, teasing gamers that this iconic transportation and warfare machine might be a central figure in the game. The report also states that the game will be “far larger than Arkham City” offering wider streets, which will allow for a new driving mechanic to bring better synergy between Batman’s grappling and gliding modes. Batman will purportedly be facing off in this game against iconic super villains such as Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, and Scarecrow, plus many more.

The release date has been tentatively set for this year, in 2014, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game’s official website can be found at BatmanArkhamKnight.com, which offers more teasers for the game. The “Batmobile Experience” will bring “a unique, interactive online exhibit of the Batmobile” and the game can be pre-ordered immediately at sites such as Amazon, BestBuy, GameStop, and Steam. The site also has some promotional screenshots from the game, specifically, this one showing off the Batmobile:

In the picture above, the Batmobile looks more badass than it ever has in a video game. Of course, this looks like a wonderful pre-render screenshot and clearly not an in-game picture. Nevertheless, it makes for good promo material to get gamers excited for this big announcement. It looks like the streets of Gotham and/or Arkham have never looked worse, making Batman’s adventures all the more exciting.
