Batman: Arkham Knight Officially Revealed As Next-Gen Exclusive

Batman Arkham Knight 1

Last week, leaked images of posters for what appeared to be the next Batman game popped up online, which indicated a reveal was coming very soon. Combined with the reveal of the cover of the next Game Informer today, many people put two and two together, and they were exactly right as Game Informer has officially revealed Batman: Arkham Knight to the masses.

The developer that made Arkham a household name is back. Rocksteady Studios’ Arkham Asylum innovated with the freeflow combat system and stalking gameplay in 2009, and the team blew it all out to an open world in 2011’s Arkham City. Rocksteady is hoping to raise the bar even higher on what will be its final Arkham game. Set after the events of Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Knight may just end the Dark Knight’s journey.

As you’ve probably guessed from the cover imagery, the Batmobile is finally a core element of the gameplay. An entirely new area of Gotham City, far larger than Arkham City, has much wider streets to accommodate the new driving gameplay that is designed to integrate smoothly with Batman’s gliding and grappling traversal. Batman chases down super villains Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, and more.

A major piece of news is that this game will be a next generation exclusive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, so the last generation of consoles will not be holding this one back at all. Game Informer is teasing more news throughout the month, so stay tuned for more info.
