Batman Arkham Knight

After a slight upset, the next Batman game from the Arkham series has been announced.

Arkham Knight will run on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, making full use of next generation hardware.

And this is great when you consider that you’re able negotiate the entire expanse of Gotham (Snowdrop style?).

Looks like Sefton Hill and the rest of Rocksteady have anticipated their players desire to explore Gotham. Ever since debuting the Gotham skyline in Arkham Asylum, I’ve been desperate to go deeper into the city.

My only sorry point is that it’l be the last of the Arkham games from Rocksteady. Batman games were always a bit of a write off, the original 1986 Batman adventure game aside. That was until Arkham Asylum and Arkham City arrived, they were masterpieces.

Looking forward to its release later this year.
