Rocksteady, the company behind Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, has announced the next installment, Batman: Arkham Knight. The first two games revolutionized freeflow combat and really were some amazing games. Rocksteady is apparently trying to out do themselves with this next one.
The teaser trailer is unbelievable and promises something everyone who played the other games has always wanted — a chance to drive the Batmobile! The design of the Batmobile is fresh and looks incredible.. The streets of Gotham will be wider to accommodate the new driving mechanics, and its supposed to integrate nicely with the already established grapple and glide travel from the previous games.
The game is set a year after the events of Arkham City and, according to Game Informer, might just be the end of the Batman’s journey. Based on the teaser, Scarecrow, Harley Quinn, the Penguin, and Two Face will make appearances and I imagine there will be many others from the Rogue Gallery.
As of right now, Arkham Knight will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 14, 2014.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available and check out this awesome trailer.
