Looks like those gaping Batman rumors from over the weekend were true after all, as Warner Bros. just announced Batman: Arkham Knight for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The developer reigns will be returned to Rocksteady, which brought us the first two Arkham games before taking the bench while Warner Bros. Montreal took over on Arkham Origins. Here’s a look at the first trailer:
Wow, now there’s something to get hyped up about: The game will feature in-game vehicles. A cruise in the Batmobile, anyone? Arkham Knight will don the biggest open world seen in any Batman game yet, and will feature villains such as Scarecrow, Two-Face, The Penguin, and Harley Quinn. Arkham Knight will be the conclusion of the Arkham story arc and will only be hitting the PS4, Xbox One and PC (no Wii U, ouch), which is good news, because it means that Rocksteady will not have to scale down the game to accommodate the previous gen.
The first full next-gen Batman experience will be hitting stores in 2014, most likely in October or November, during the holiday season. This thing is already sounding like any Batman fan’s dream come true. Are you excited about the new Batman announcement? Let us know in the comments below!
