Awesome a new batman game, I am sold so gonna get a ps4 just to play this game
Welcome to the Playstation Forums Auswolf7. Yes Batman Arkham Knight looks great as aways. Going to preorder as soon as Amazon allows me to preorder the game. Yet I am thinking of getting the CE.
I'm really excited for this game. Origins was okay but to get a full Rocksteady game again.
I really hope they won't try and squeeze the Joker back in. I mean, I love him and he is my favorite Batman villain, but his story was done. I even would have been okay without him in City.
I bet he'll show up, though, as it seems that the Arkham series is about Batman and the Joker.
I hope not too. And I honestly doubt they will.
They did a great job with the hidden room in Asylum that hinted at Arkham City. And in City, they had the hidden room in the boat that hinted at a bigger game set in Gotham that would feature the Scarecrow as the main villain. (Which is what Arkham Knight is about.)
I'm sure other villains will return, but not Joker. (Maybe some kind of cameo via poster / picture or something, but not a physical return.)
This news blew me away and I am very excited that Rock Steady took the plunge so early in the Next Gen cycle. They "could" have developed a Batman game for both Gens, but not "Arkham Knight". Rocksteady says so themselves in the GI article. They have a clear vision of what they want to produce and knew right away they needed the power of Next Gen in order to do it. Arguing anything else is a futile effort.
As a PS4 owner it is very exciting to see this. The more Next Gen exclusive titles that come out, the more Gamers will decide that they do in fact "need" a Next Gen Console, which pushes sales, which increases development etc.
As a huge fan of Arkham Asylum and City, this is very very exciting news!
Please, no blank friend requests - let me know who you are!
Never got into the Batman Arkham games, but I definitely played them and loved what Rocksteady did with it. Arkham Knight just looks ridiculous and there's a good reason they have decided to put this on current gen platforms.
