Release Date: 03/10/2014

British developer Rocksteady Games stunned pretty much everybody back in 2009 when it gave us Batman: Arkham Asylum, a deep and engrossing action adventure blockbuster that finally gave us a recognisable interactive version of the Dark Knight.

Now, the studio is preparing to leave Gotham behind, and hopes that Arkham Knight, the final entry in its Batman trilogy, will deliver everything fans have come to expect – including a driveable Batmobile and an entire city to test drive it in.

“We try to create that very cinematic story-telling experience through the game,” Rocksteady's Guy Perkins has told IGN. “Obviously Asylum was the starting point for that, but the intimate cat-and-mouse gameplay between the Joker and Batman really demanded it took place in the pressure cooker of the Asylum.”

“So that had its place for that story, but then we took that into the open world to give players the next piece of the Batman armour as it were, which is the grappling gun and the ability to glide. The introduction of those pieces really required a bigger game world to support them, but then the big thing that was always missing for us was the Batmobile. It was always missing but wouldn’t have worked in Asylum or City, so to build an open-world around that was crucial.”

“If people walk away thinking this is the ultimate Batman simulator, then our job is complete, we gave them Gotham City, we gave them Batman at the height of his powers and we gave them the Batmobile. I think those three elements come together to make a great game.”

Batman: Arkham Knight is out in June 2015 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
