Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. have decided to delay the release of Batman: Arkham Knight. Instead of October, the Arkham Knight will batarang onto your console in 2015. There’s no specific date in 2015. So be patient Batman fans. Rocksteady has earned my trust so I won’t freak out with this.
You want more Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and all other Warner Bros. news? Of course you do!
The first gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight has been released. YES! YES! YES! I can’t wait for this game and the return of Rocksteady Studios to the franchise that set the bar for comic book video games. The trailer gives us our first look at the Batmobile in action.
I’m a huge fan of Lord of the Rings and all the adventures that have come out of the Tolkien universe. I haven’t always been a fan of the games but Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor is looking really good. We finally have a release date for it as well. The game will go head to head with the new Alien game on October 7th.
Here’s the latest trailer. I wish this were a true next-gen game though. As it stands, however, it’ll be released on all platforms. Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
I don’t know about you but I’m excited to see Rocksteady return to the Batman series! With that said, The Riddler looks awesome. Here’s more on the villains in Arkham Knight.
“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.
