All About Batman: Arkham Knight

Genre: 3rd person action-adventure

The explosive finale to the Batman Arkham series started by Rocksteady Studios in 2009 is ready for world wide release on June 2 2015.  Directed by Sefton Hill, the fourth installation of Batman game features five-times the number of enemies as were possible in Arkham City. Although Batman: Arkham Knight is the successor of Warner Bros. Games Montreal’s 2013 Batman: Arkham Origins, but its story line is in the continuation of 2011 Batman: Arkham City. This is the first game in the series which is named after the villain of the game.

Created by Bob Kane, Batman is a superhero trained to the peak of human mental and physical perfection. At the peak of his ability, Batman is struggling to come to terms with the absence of his nemesis. The citizens of Gotham have never felt safer before the death of Joker. Crime rate has considerably gone down.  But, for how long?? Batman enemies, Two-Face, Harrley Quinn, Riddler and Penguin unite with the super-villain “Scarecrow” with a singular motive of killing the Dark Knight.  The famous city soon turns into a hellish nightmare as it falls victim to Scarecrow’s fear toxin which leads to the evacuation of 6 million civilians so that only criminals remain in the city. Well, how our hero Batman confronts the villains, for that you have to wait for the World Wide release of Arkham Knight.

Developed by Rockseady Studios, “Batman: Arkham Knight” introduces “Batmobile” (Batman’s car) for the first time in the series as a drivable vehicle. Well, this is not an ordinary car. This is a bullet proof car which can be called for at will, and it is capable rotating on spot, smashing objects like trees and firing missiles. “Batmobile” is upgradable in the same manner as you upgrade Batman with new gadgets. Game also includes racing missions with Batmobile.

Detective vision, line launcher and grapnel gun are back. Batman can now throw batarangs and fire other gadgets while flying. There is a considerable enhancement in the combat as well; “Fear-Take down” is one such enhancement.

Well, this is the same “Unreal Engine 3”, with more precision this time. Batman has to cover approximately five-times the area he covered in Arkham City. Graphics has been enhanced, the locations has been re-designed.

Interestingly, there is no news regarding the presence of Catwoman in this game. Whereas, commissioner James Gordon’s daughter “Barbara” (Oracle) has an important role in the game.

“Batman: Arkham Origins” was not up to the expectations of the gamers, where “Batman: Arkham City” remains the best game in the series. As this is the last chapter of the Arkham Series, the expectations are high again.
