Everybody hold on to your pants because for the first time in the series, the ESRB has given a Batman: Arkham title a mature rating. That means things are going to get pretty intense in Batman: Arkham Knight.. We're freaking out.
For those of you who prefer to see Batman driving around in a car with a gigantic gun sticking out at the top, blowing up tanks, shooting people and also shoving crooks' heads into electrified fuse boxes, we have some good news! For those of you who don't, well, maybe just close this window and go for a walk for a few minutes or something. See, this week brought us some new footage from Rocksteady's upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight video game, in which Batman takes on a small army of soldiers and (presumably unmanned) tanks led by the title villain to rescue a few NPCs in an all-out assault on Ace Chemical.
And just so you don't think it's all just things designed to make me grumpy, you also get to see Batman doing a straight-up Street Fighter-style shoryuken, and that's pretty awesome.
Do you like loving, slow-motion shots of the Batmobile? Do you like the idea of Batman jumping out of a moving Batmobile and gliding through the night sky? Do you like punches and knees to the face?
If you do, then you're probably going to enjoy the heck out of the new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight, the game that marks Rocksteady Studios' return to the Arkham game franchise after it took a break on Batman: Arkham Origins. Check out the video after the jump for not only all that action, but for glimpses of the Scarecrow, Two-Face, Oracle, and the mysterious and new title character.
A handful of new screenshots for Batman: Arkham Knight have surfaced, giving us a look at some familiar faces, a better view of the Batmobile and a little bit of bone-crunching action as well.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.
Okay. Breathe. We've got to get through this together. For those of you eagerly anticipating the next entry in Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham series (yes, Rocksteady and apparently not WB Games Montreal), this week brought an interesting rumor. Over at the fan Facebook page for Hush (which itself is pretty weird since it's a new Facebook page for a story that ran in the comics 11 years ago), someone posted a picture of a decidedly video-gamey Hush a.k.a. Dr. Thomas Elliot with the news that things were "about to get more interesting next month."
If that's true (and as Arcade Sushi argues, it very well might just be a rumor), it'll be a mean feat since Hush was never interesting to begin with, but it looks like we might be on the verge of an announcement that after cameos in all three highly successful games, Hush is taking the center stage in the next installment. And, God help me, that might actually be a good idea.
Game developer Rocksteady and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment have been relatively mysterious about the upcoming sequel to the popular Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City games, but fans can at least get seeming confirmation that the new game will be out sometime later this year.The news comes via a transcript
When last we heard, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady were working on some kind of Batman: Arkham Asylum/City prequel set in the Silver Age that dealt, in part, with Batman's first meeting with the Joker. There was also a hint that Bats would potentially be interacting with Superman and the Justice League, to some extent. Furthermore, Paul Dini went on recor
With Batman donning a new suit that stores and releases kinetic energy in the Wii U ported Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition, it only seems fair that his playable co-star Catwoman might also stand to upgrade her tech, right? With Catwoman's flashy new blue lightning-y claws matching Batman's similarly glowing gauntlets, it appears so. Of course, that's not the only change to Selina Kyle's signature catsuit. Compared to her original costume, her new armor leaves a lot mo
Following last month's rumors that Rocksteady Studios had begun working on a DC Comics title featuring Batman (and maybe the Justice League) set in the Silver Age, fans of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City have been searching for whatever clues they can about the supposed 2014 release. For his part, longtime animation and comics scribe and writer for the first two games has at least cleared up that he won't be penning the story for the
