A new site has launched (but yet restricted) and there are some interesting tweets. It seems GameInformer might reveal a new Batman: Arkham game with its new cover.
Cool, Can't Wait.
Would it thought it would be called Batman: Gotham City since thats where the game has been leading to.
The fans deserve an Open-World Batman.
I cosign that. I want an open-world Gotham City with filled with civilians and the bat vehicles. Edit: @ TopDudeMan You don't have to worry about that as Rocksteady has already shown that they can tell a compelling story in an open-world game with Arkham City. Also Red Dead redemption is another open world game that has a huge world with a great story as well. Also great stoy driven games like Metal Gear and the Witcher are going the open world route with world that are as probably going to be among the biggest ever seen on consoles and doubt they'll fall behind on the story side. In short, I have faith that Rocksteady will deliver on the story side as they have proven that they can do so already. It's not even a worry for me.
They'd have to be really careful with that. The more open the world, the less focus is given to the game's story. And that's what those games are all about. It also needs to take place over a short period of in-game time.
@TopDude, The Batman lexicon is deep enough that I think that open world is a reason for More story, and side characters as well. Check out Crime Alley and get a flashback or mission. Visit the Batsignal for random mission events. Open world has the opportunity for more, as well as the pitfalls of less.
I was hoping for Gotham Asylum, but Arkham Knight is cool too
I dunno...I don't think a GTA-like Batman game would be the best option to be honest.
>inb4 Joker returns >again >as the main villain >again >who was mastermind behind everything >again
Joker is not the main villain. Hush is. You should go back and play hush and azrael side missions in Arkham City
I hope they dont adopt the Tim Sale art direction for Hush. A little to abstract for my liking.
Spoiler: Hush is actually the real Joker.
This was the rumored title awhile back so it wouldn't be a surprise.
Arkham knight nice name.
Yeah i read that and was like "thats a pretty badass name" lol
Yeah, it seems like a nod to the Dark Knight trilogy.
Definitely something is in the works. That picture for article is a poster for the current marketing at Gamestop. There is nothing about what its for...just hangs and says Batman.
I really liked Origins. I expect big innovations by Rocksteady though, since this is the first next gen Batman.
I like batman arkham origins...even though it wasn't as good as the past two games...it was still a solid game...the boss fights and side stories where much better in arkham origins than arkham city.
Can't wait to see what the reveal is. 8)
I'm really hoping it ends up being Batman: Hush. That storyline could make for such a great game.
I think I saw something very similar back in December: http://n4g.com/news/1408527...
Lets hope they really shake things up now. Open world please. And I mean true open world.
I hope that Rocksteady is in the making of a real Superman game with the John Williams Official Superman Theme and all. It is time that Superman gets a game that he deserve. He was the Superhero that started it all. And I think that too much games has already involved Batman. I do not say that Batman games should not be made. On the contrary infact. Sunsofts 1989 adaptation of T.Burtons BATMAN was so great that I got it back in the day. Konamis Batman Returns for SNES equally great. Legos Batman games are as charming as nothing else and of course the ultimate Batman dynamic duo from Rocksteady: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. These games are infact the basic standars from wich a execellent games about a comicbook in this case BATMAN should be made. Now it is time for the Dark Knight to step back and let Superman take his rightfull place in the world of interactive entertainment electronic media.
I wonder if Rocksteady are using the new UE4 for this new batman game. Regardless i have faith they will do a great job with the games visuals anyway.
