Batman Arkham Knight - News, Trailer and Release Date

Batman Arkham Knight

Batman is one of my personal favorite games. I have been a fan since the very first title of the series. This title however is my most awaited title of 2014. With there being no signs of GTA V to show up on PC, we might as well resort to the Batman franchise for now. The trailer video hints the character lineup for the game and most importantly the new killer batman costume.

One of the main elements of the game would be the Bat mobile. Gamers will now be able to roam around gotham on a bat mobile, this means that a much larger map can be expected in the game. The map would include wider roads to accompany the vehicles, probably some side missions related to your bat mobile and as a whole the map will be larger than the one in arkham city.

In a way the sad part is that this game marks the completion of the Batman series started by Rocksteady and the game plot takes place an year after Arkham City.

A word from the game director:

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

The graphics look absolutely stunning and the level of detailing looks amazing as far as the trailer is concerned.

 

Character Lineup

These are the confirmed villains that would appear in this game.

  • Scarecrow
  • Penguin
  • Two-Face
  • Harley Quinn

 

We already saw Penguin, Harley Quinn and Two-Face in the trailer but scarecrow is also one of the confirmed villains.

 

Since, batman arkham knight is also targeted towards the next-gen consoles, the level of detail could not have been neglected. Previously games like Batman Arkham City were built keeping in mind that PC alone would be able to handle the really high graphics and so the developers had to make a reasonable version suitable to both consoles and PC. For making a really good one for PC alone would be costly. However, thanks to next-gen consoles that bottleneck is no longer an issue because a wider audience is now available.

Just have a look at these details … wow.

The characters this time look mature, they are not look alikes of the comic version of batman series. Its good they thought of a redesign of Penguin in batman arkham knight. Before that penguin looked very similar to the comic book version of batman. Here is his new look.

Release Date

Batman Arkham Knight is set to release October 2014. The game will be available on multiple platforms that include PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Bad news for console gamers owning a PS3 and Xbox 360 because it is confirmed that Batman Arkham Knight will not be available for these consoles. Again that proves my point where I stressed that because of next-gen consoles PC gamers also benefit from extremely great graphics. Its obvious that PS3 and Xbox 360 no longer equip the hardware necessary to handle such a game. PC thus lives forever.

 

Batman Arkham Knight – Trailer


The trailer pretty much says it all, it hints you to the importance of the Bat-mobile in the game and the fact that open roaming would now be a lot more interesting compared to the old titles. We can see the remodeled character of the game as well in the video. Its good to know that they finally made a decent Batman in the game, to be honest the old one looked like a lazy dude.

 

I will update the article with any new news on Batman Arkham Knight.
