Considering the financial and critical success of Rocksteady’s Batman games, its not too surprising that another game has been announced. What is surprising was that Rocksteady announced it out of the blue. Regardless we have a new Batman game coming later this year on next generation systems and PC. It not currently known whether Arkham Knight will come to previous generation consoles as the preorder section on the official site only lists PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions. The North American Gamestop website lists October 14th as a release date, however there is no listing on the Australian EB Games website. Much like other games it will probably be released in Europe and the PAL regions within the same week.
The trailer doesn’t give away the overall plot for Arkham Knight, but consists of a letter being read by Thomas Wayne (Bruce’s father) to Bruce Wayne as he goes after Two Face, Penguin, Harley Quinn and other various masked henchmen. The main highlight, next to the amazing CG graphics, is the use of Batman’s Batmobile. More than likely it will be the players main source of transportation throughout the game.
