Batman: Arkham Knight launches
One of the year’s most anticipated titles, Batman: Arkham Knight, has arrived.
The final entry in Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady Studios‘ award-winning Arkham trilogy, Batman: Arkham Knight sees the caped crusader face his greatest challenge yet against the Arkham Knight.
For the first time in the series, Arkham Knight allows players to drive the most popular vehicle in comic book history: The Batmobile. Combining that with Batman’s detective skills, his unique gadgetry as well as his skill in unarmed combat and you’ve got the ultimate Batman experience.
The Arkham games have always had impressive voice acting and with Arkham Knight, the voice cast is arguably the best the series has ever seen, with Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) and Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga) joining series veterans Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series), Grey Griffin (Batman: Arkham City), Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go!, Mortal Kombat X), Nolan North (everything), and Troy Baker (Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Mortal Kombat X).
“The fate of Gotham City hangs in the balance as Scarecrow is joined by the Arkham Knight, a completely new and original character in the Batman universe, as well as a roster of Super-Villains including Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Two-Face, Firefly and the Riddler. Joining The World’s Greatest Detective are his closest allies, Commissioner Gordon, Oracle, Alfred, Lucius Fox, Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing. Throughout the game, players will be introduced to enhancements to the signature features of the Batman: Arkham series, such as stealth, forensics, navigation, and FreeFlow Combat. In addition, the new Dual Play feature is available in specific areas of the game and allows players to seamlessly switch between The Dark Knight and his fellow heroes including Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman.”
Those playing on PlayStation 4 will also have access to exclusive content, including the Scarecrow Nightmare Missions Pack, Classic TV Series Batman and Batmobile Skins and the Justice League 3000 Batman Skin.
