While developer Rocksteady continues to work on its next Batman game in utter secrecy, Gameloft has taken it upon itself to give the masses a new Batman game based on The Dark Knight Rises. The Dark Knight Rises (which also happens to be the name of the game) is exclusive to handheld devices, but it will be an open world game, something Batman fans have always fantasised about.
According to Pocket Gamer, The Dark Knight Rises will adopt the Grand Theft Auto formula, where players will be able to freely roam Gotham City as Batman, solving crimes and breaking faces.
Besides a rather robust hand-to-hand combat system, The Dark Knight Rises will also feature vehicular segments, where players can drive the Batmobile all over Gotham City, exploring it to their heart’s content. And like any open world game, expect a ton of side quests such as “jail breaks, car chases, and hostage situations“.
The Dark Knight Rises, the game will release on June 20, 2012 for iOS and Android platforms.
