The fourth game in the Batman Arkham series – Batman: Arkham Knight – will release this year and will be developed by series creator Rocksteady Studios.
The Batmobile will be at the core of Arkham Knight’s gameplay.
Rocksteady is the team behind Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, with last year’s Arkham Origins having been developed by Warner Bros. Montreal.
Arkham Knight will mark the series’ debut on PS4 and Xbox One, and it will be Rocksteady’s last Arkham game. The studio is said to be simultaneously working on a new IP.
The Batmobile will be at the core of Arkham Knight’s gameplay, and the game’s debut trailer also plays a lot of emphasis on the Dark Knight’s iconic ride. The game will be set in a new area of Gotham City that is bigger than the one in Arkham City, and it will also have wider streets to accommodate the driving gameplay.
The game was revealed by Game Informer, which has Arkham Knight on its April cover.
Batman: Arkham Knight will feature several supervillians, including Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, Two Face and Penguin. Harley Quinn will be available as a playable character to those who preorder the game.
No release date has been announced for Batman: Arkham Knight, but anytime between September and November would be a good bet. The game is set for release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
