“It’s something we try to put in the characters,” Feliu says. “If you had to work overtime, for example, you would start the night with your jumper on and everything, and as the time went by you’d probably take your jumper off, open your shirt, take your tie off, have a coffee. The Riddler is a character who has a cool framework, and we didn’t want to change it too much – we like his shirts with question marks and silly glasses and greasy hair.”
Rocksteady Studios returns to the Batman Arkham franchise with its final entry. Batman Arkham Knight. I passed on Origins because of the different developer but now I’m coming home. I can’t wait!
In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
“Batman: Arkham Knight is the pinnacle game of our hugely successful franchise, and we are giving players the most expansive, impressive title in the series,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The Rocksteady Studios team is continuing to focus on the excellent gameplay for which they are known while delivering a thrilling new experience for gamers and Batman fans.”
“The team at Rocksteady Studios is putting a tremendous amount of work into delivering the final chapter of our Batman: Arkham trilogy so that fans can feel what it’s like to be the Batman,” said Sefton Hill, Game Director at Rocksteady Studios. “We’re excited to be developing the game for next-gen platforms, which has allowed us to bring to life the design elements that we envisioned from the beginning such as the Batmobile and how it augments Batman’s abilities, to the fully detailed and realized Gotham City.”
Shadow of Mordor is looking like a triumphant appearance for Monolith on next generation consoles. Although the game will be available on Xbox 360, I might decide to pick it up. I love what they’re attempting to do and from the video alone I’m intrigued. Yes, there are shades of Assassin’s Creed in it which isn’t a good thing. I actually like the borrowed combat style.
Check out the walkthrough though … it looks great.
I know Warner Bros. has had their share of issues with Batman: Arkham Origins but you have to admit that they know how to do a trailer. The latest trailer introduces today’s Initiation DLC which is available on Xbox 360. If you haven’t purchased it, you can do so at any time for $6.99. Travel back to the days before there was a Batman™ and take control of a young Bruce Wayne as he completes his martial arts training. Experience exotic locales including a bamboo forest and mountain-top monastery. This pack contains Bruce Wayne and Vigilante skins, four challenge maps, and a challenge campaign.
Wow. Warner Bros. You’re giving fans in the UK a really awesome package aren’t you? Fans of the Batman games will be able to grab Batman: Arkham Collections next week in the UK.
The Batman: Arkham Collection Edition will be available in the UK from 22nd November 2013. Developed by WB Games Montréal and Rocksteady Studios, Batman ™: Arkham Collection Edition brings together the full collection of Arkham Games:
The games in the Batman Arkham series have had some of the best gameplay I’ve ever experienced. It’s the closest I will ever come to being Batman. This prequel to the Arkham series shows us a younger Batman who’s still getting his feet wet as a crime fighter.
In the trailer below, this game doesn’t look to disappoint and I’m looking forward to picking this one up when the game launches this Friday, October 25th. Batman: Arkham Origins just might be the best in the series so far.
