It’s finally here. Be Vengeance. Be the Night. Be the Batman. Be the Arkham Knight.
Written by Sefton Hill, Martin Lancaster, and Paul Crocker, Arkham Knight is based on the franchise’s long-running comic book mythos. Set one year after the events of 2011’s Batman: Arkham City, the game’s main storyline follows Batman as he confronts the Scarecrow, who has launched an attack on Gotham City, causing a city-wide evacuation. Aided by the mysterious Arkham Knight, an original character created for the game, the Scarecrow unites Batman’s greatest foes in a plot to finally kill the Dark Knight. The game is presented from the third-person perspective with a primary focus on Batman’s combat and stealth abilities, detective skills, and gadgets that can be used in both combat and exploration. Arkham Knight also introduces the Batmobile as a playable vehicle, which can be used for transportation or combat. The game expands Batman’s arsenal of gadgets and combat attacks and offers a more open world structure, allowing the player to complete side missions away from the primary storyline.
