Rocksteady has revealed Batman: Arkham Knight, the next game in the Batman: Arkham series heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year.
Oh snapppppp !!! Yes!!! love how they have the batmobile there, to make everyone happy. I mean everyone nagged about it. Love that it's only current gen, way to support current consoles and not create half assed last gen ports. I hated when devs said they wouldn't make current gen games because there's still not enough of a market, off course there isn't if you don't support it!! Explosive finale sounds great I wouldn't like it if they milked it, every great franchise should have an "explosive" finale! Until they make a justice league game xD Respect rocksteady.
Next gen and PC only, yessssss, no cross gen limitations. We will be able to drive the Batmobile around the city, AWESOME! Rocksteady, drivable Batmobile, next gen and PC only, Scarecrow presumably the main villain......i have a great feeling about this one. I am also LOVING the fact that this Batmobile looks more like the oldschool Batmobile and not the newer tank-like one. This is the Batman game we have been waiting for.....HYPE!
I really thought we'd hear about an Arkham Origins for PS4/XBOXOne before this. At least we're getting a Batman game for Rocksteady again.
Finallly! I hope they ditch the old UE3 and use UE4 this time and try to reach the quality of Arkham City intro (which they promised they could achieve it next-gen) or the UE4 Infiltrator demo.
Ohhh man, you have no idea how much im excited, this an absolute day one! Rocksteady + Next Gen + drivable Batmobile = The best Batman video Game!
I'm still wondering why it's called Arkham if you can drive the entirety of Gotham. I understand the branding, but I doubt anyone will think this isn't the next in the series. To me, Batman: Gotham Knight makes more sense. Or even, Batman: Gotham Nights has a cooler, suave feel to it.

So glad it's next gen only.
Hopefully, it's not as bad and doesn't have the glitches that AO had last year. It's made by Rocksteady, so that's a good thing.
another batman g....oh wait drivable batmobile....aaaaaaaaaaaahhhh
Rocksteady hasn't let us down yet. This is gonna be awesome.
Only Rocksteady can save us from the Mediorcity that was Arkahm Origins. Welcome back, Rocksteady.
Agreed, the Arkham Franchise is back where it belongs.
I'm definetly getting a ps4 now..I love asylum, city, and origins...now I can't wait for this one.
to be fair rocksteady didn't make arkham origins
You could also get it for the xboner.
Let's make it impossible for them to add co-op or competitive multiplayer. Hype level is atrocious. I'll be done justice.
yeah the online was soooo well recieved in origins
Rocksteady could do multiplayer justice if they really wanted to. Ever since the second game introduced multiple characters to play as in the challenge mode, I've been pushing for a 2-player co-op option that let's us fight legions of bad guys together for the highest score. I think the challenge mode is where that would have to remain, though, as it would only complicate the campaign. Honestly, it's not a "complete" Batman experience if my friends and I can't Batman-and-Robin it up in the challenge mode. Origins came close, but it took a competitive, team deathmatch approach which I didn't like at all. It just felt like a desperate attempt to force in shooter-based multiplayer.
It better be good. The last one was extremely disappointing. Now that it's back in Rocksteady's hand though it should be better.
I see few people hating on origins but dont know why it was really good and anyone that give it a miss should give it a chance.
I think we all knew it would be next gen only, which is why Warner Bros got Arkham origins out to eek out some revenue from that huge userinstalled base
Rocksteady was working on this for a few years then...should be a very good game. I did not try Origins due to the bad press. City and Asylum were excellent games though.
This is the best gaming news of the morning.
I love that it's only for next gen consoles.
Arkham City didn't have a thing on Arkham Asylum. Let's hope this delivers.
You people still support this franchise when the devs and publishers are more concerned with dlc than game breaking bugs/glitches. *rolls eyes* -__- c'mon
WB Games Montreal =/= Rocksteady
Am I the only that thinks Bruce Wayne in this trailer looks a lot like Ben Afflack
NO multiplayer!!!! YEEESSSS! Probably inspiration from Ready @ Dawn.:)
best game ever comes from tv shows and movies
@lsujester -possible Spoiler- The article said there was a new villain that called himself the "Arkham Knight". That's probably why. -possible Spoiler-
Yesss! The entirety of Gotham city? Oh yeah
Odd they didn't call it Gotham Knight. Must be because of a comic tie in.
Good its only PC and next gen.
You mean Current gen? :D
I say it's acceptable to call it "next-gen" for the first year, when the last gen systems are still fairly active.
I'm going to keep calling it Next-Gen until we dont have Cross-Gen games.
@Half-Mafia EA's sports titles will have you calling the 8th gen "next-gen" until the 9th gen :P
No Wii U?? damn...
oh my god batmobile 0__0
My only issue... they made gliding and flying around SO fast and easy in AC that now the idea of driving a car seems silly.
The game world must huge if they are including a drivable Batmbile in it. If it's anything like it's supposed to be, this Batmobile will have a boost mode and be very fast. I think gliding will still be a viable option, just a lot slower.
Yeah I'm betting the world is huge. And no doubt driving will be fun for sure. It's definitely been something I think we've all wanted to do is drive the batmobile. Just still seems like getting around would be faster by gliding/flying. And quieter. I mean I don't want a car in infamous haha
haha good point! I hope you can shoot out of the batmobile(emergency evac.) and then straight to gliding.
That's true. I thought people were crazy for suggesting drivable vehicles in Crackdown and inFamous. Then again, maybe the Batmobile transforms into the Batplane. They're doing an entire city. It wouldn't surprise me.
It being next gen I'm expecting a complete revamp to what we were used too. Don't forget rocksteadys been working on this for 3 years, they won't be confined to any restrictions or limitations. The laws of the last gen games won't apply to this one. The architecture of the map won't be the same for sure. Question is will we be able to use it at our leisure? Or in specific missions? I can see it now, time trials in the batmobile! Good times ahead. The tumbler was a lot if fun to drive in batman begins, it was arguably the funnest aspect of the game. That was on the ps2 Now let's see what rocksteady can do with the fourth generation of ps4 consoles. Still looks good http://m.youtube.com/watch?...
the laws of last gen? people are getting ahead of them selves
PS4/X1/PC only? OMG HYPE!!!!!
Cool. I really like Rocksteady's Batman games.
Rocksteady back and Scarecrow the villain? I'm in.
Dat definitive Wii U version XD
Now with even shinier batsuit armor. And non-existence.
Awesome! Still hoping for a Batman Beyond, but I think it's good Rocksteady wants to finish the series.
Sweet. More developers should do the same, only release on next gen or pc. Last gen is over, come join us.
Thank god its only next gen. Now it won't be held back. Can't wait. That PS4 cover looks sick too.
Cool can't wait
I AM BATMAN
I am screaming.. I AM SCREAMING FROM ALL THE HYPE! *Trembles from excitement* Rocksteady, please make it awesome!
Get to play as Harley Quinn? Interesting...
Rocksteady! yes! now we are talking. Origin was so bad
This is good news. I haven't played Origins, but I've completed Asylum and City and they were awesome games. I'll pre-order this.
WORD! There's gonna be a lot of salty last genners. Props to Rocksteady for making this Current Gen only. We will undoubtedly be getting a less restricted game because of it.
There's already a couple of them on the comments in the link.
