Rocksteady are gearing up to unleash a new Batman game for the latest generation of home consoles. This time Batman must once again face the Scarecrow and a whole host of villains who are destined to finish the Dark Knight once and for all.
Batman: Arkham Asylum was Rocksteady’s first Batman game which won several awards and was regarded as one of the best games to feature the caped crusader. In the game, Batman had to make his way through the famous Gotham mental institution, Arkham Asylum, in order to capture the Joker.
In the follow up, Batman: Arkham City, the slums of Gotham city have been converted into a walled prison. Batman is trapped inside and he must clear Bruce Wayne’s name as well as take on his famous adversaries. Again Rocksteady won multiple awards and the game was considered as good if not better than Arkham Asylum.
The next entry in the franchise, Batman: Arkham Origins, was developed by Warner Bros Games as a prequel to the original Arkham Asylum. Whilst regarded as a good game, it is widely acknowledged to be not up to par as those developed by Rocksteady.
So what have Rocksteady been doing since? Working on Batman: Arkham Knight! This new gameplay trailer showcases actual in-game graphics including the Batmobile which is fully drivable this time around.
It looks simply stunning and I wish I had the console to play it on!
Batman: Arkham Knight is released worldwide on October 14th 2014 for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
