Batman: Arkham Knight (6.23.15)

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Announces Batman™: Arkham Knight
Epic Finale to Rocksteady Studios' Critically-Acclaimed Videogame Series Introduces
Drivable Batmobile and Fully-Realized Gotham City

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today announced Batman™:
Arkham Knight, Rocksteady Studios' conclusion to the series of award-winning, best-selling
titles Batman™: Arkham Asylum and Batman™: Arkham City. Batman: Arkham Knight is
based on DC Comics' core Batman license and will be available exclusively for the
PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and
entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC. The game is scheduled for release
worldwide in 2014.

In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the
city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super
villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever.
Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile,
which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle,
combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the
ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across
the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.

"Batman: Arkham Knight is the pinnacle game of our hugely successful franchise, and we are
giving players the most expansive, impressive title in the series," said Martin Tremblay,
President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "The Rocksteady Studios team is
continuing to focus on the excellent gameplay for which they are known while delivering a
thrilling new experience for gamers and Batman fans."

"The team at Rocksteady Studios is putting a tremendous amount of work into delivering the
final chapter of our Batman: Arkham trilogy so that fans can feel what it's like to be the
Batman," said Sefton Hill, Game Director at Rocksteady Studios. "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."

Arkham Knight gets an official release date..and more

Release: October 14, 2014
Developer: Rocksteady Studios
Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC

  • Next-gen only.
  • Single player only. No multiplayer.
  • Arkham Knight isn’t just the name of the game, it’s also the name of a brand new villain.
    Rocksteady is working with DC’s Geoff Johns
    to create the character from scratch.
  • Batman starts the game in the Arkham City suit, but gets a new costume early on.
  • Takes place in a central zone of Gotham City split into 3 islands. 5 times bigger than Arkham City.
  • The level of detail in Gotham City is some of the most impressive Game Informer has ever seen in a video game.
  • Takes place one year after Arkham City.
  • With The Joker dead, Gotham’s villains come together to try to take down Batman.
  • Scarecrow, Two-Face, Penguin, and Harley Quinn are all confirmed.
  • Kevin Conroy is back as Batman. Troy Baker is Two-Face, Nolan North is Penguin, Tara Strong is Harley
    Quinn, and Wally Wingert is Ridder.
  • Batman visits with Oracle in the game, she’s not just a voice in his earpiece anymore.
  • Cut scenes are all done in game, so it doesn’t feel like you’re playing a game and then watching a movie.
  • The characters are incredibly detailed. One has the polygon count of Arkham Aslyum, the whole environment.
  • Batman’s cape and character’s clothing reacts realistically to wind and movement.
  • All quick-fire gadgets can now be used during flight.
  • Batman can perform a quick ground strike to downed opponents.
  • Interrogations are back.
  • Batman can incorporate the environment into his combat combos like never before.
  • Fear takedowns allow Batman to take out multiple enemies in slow motion, as long as he isn’t spotted.
  • This is Rocksteady’s last Batman game. There will be a clear ending to their Arkham trilogy.
    It’s possible that WB Games Montreal
    may still make Batman games set in the Arkham Origins time period.
  • Rocksteady set out to make the best car in any game ever.
  • It’s so detailed it would take up the space of an entire Xbox 360 game.
  • It’s the only drive-able vehicle.
  • Players can bring the Batmobile to their location with the press of a button.
  • It can do burnouts, jumps, boosts, and even rotate in circles at a full stop to get you pointed in the right direction.
  • It can smash through barricades, trees, and building corners.
  • Batman can eject out of the Batmobile and go directly into gliding through the city.

Batman: Arkham Knight Delayed Until 2015

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady have released a brand new video for
Batman: Arkham Knight that shows off the Batmobile's "battle mode," but it's what comes at
the end of the video that is the most surprising bit as the developer has revealed that the
game has been delayed until 2015. The game was originally slated for release this October.
