Rocksteady have revealed the latest addition to the Arkham series of Batman games, Batman: Arkham Knight.
The game, which is set to be the ‘explosive finale’ to the popular series, is scheduled for release on the fourteenth of October this year and will coming to Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
Arkham Knight will be the third game in the series developed by Rocksteady after control was given to Warner Bros. Games Montreal for Arkham Origins.
Arkham Origins introduced multiplayer to the series but Rocksteady have opted to drop it for Arkham Knight, saying that they didn’t have time to include it. The London-based developer have also confirmed that the Batmobile will be driveable for the first time in the series and claimed that the playable world in Arkham Knight is five times the size of Arkham City’s. But in an interview with Game Informer, Arkham Knight’s game director Sefton Hill had this to say about the game:
“As we’ve said before with Arkham City, it’s not about the scale as much as the detail. We want to make sure the world is rich and full of interesting things to do. We’re not trying to create the biggest open-world game ever. We are trying to create a really rich, vibrant, dense open world.
Arkham City was quite claustrophobic,” Hill says. “Here we have a lot more negative space between the buildings so it’s much easier and more enjoyable to glide around.”
