For full coverage and trailer, you can check out GameInformer.

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.

Be The Batman.

Lock if old.

It's very surprising that they seem to be skipping the last gen versions. Like I said in the IG thread, I think this will be the first major multiplatform game to skip the last gen versions in favor of a fully current gen game.

Seems like scarecrow is the main villain. This sounds great so far.

Based Rocksteady.


Hope they can do something other than Batman soon. "Finale" tends to not hold a lot of weight in these games.

Yeah last gen software is not doing all that great.

I dont think they expected a collapse that quick.

Not sure how much I love that; never been a huge scarecrow fan. I can't see the other villians really headlining the game. I would just LOVE for the story to have NOTHING to do with the Joker.

Surely they won't over look PS3/360 versions, that is a big install base. I'm just hoping they haven't got full updated information.

Is rocksteady even doing this one?

It doesn't surprise me. What surprises me is the publishers making cross-gen games when the adoption rate of PS4/X1 is seemingly rapid.

Ridiculous - as an 'explosive finale', it should be made available on the platforms which possess the rest of the series.

I think they might do what Ubisoft have hinted at and make a current gen game and then a next gen game.
