Batman Arkham Knight Is Five Times Bigger Than Arkham City

Batman isn't the Arkham Knight.

Yesterday Batman Arkham Knight was officially revealed with the above trailer, along with a rumoured release date of October 14. Now new details have emerged as to what kind of things can be expected in the new Batman title, including the fact that Kevin Conroy will be voicing the Dark Knight and that the game will feature absolutely no multi-player, unlike Arkham Origins which did.

According to Rocksteady’s Sefton Hill Arkham Knight is set a year after the events of City, and is around five times as large as that game, and more densely populated. Apparently the new title will be able to handle up to three to five times more thugs being present at any one time over City, with riots consisting of over 50 characters. The name of the game doesn’t actually refer to Batman but a villain who takes their cues from him, and wears a suit with the letter A emblazoned on the chest. He can also challenge Batman in different ways. It could be that Anarky, who appears in Origins, has grown up a bit to become a major challenger.

The Batmobile will be accessible too and can be used at almost any time in the game. It has immobilising missiles, an ejector which is shown in the trailer above, and can smash through most objects. It will also be needed to pick up some of the Riddler trophies dotted around the place.

  1. So five times as far to travel from one end of the map to the other on the various side quests?

    • Not with the Batmobile!

      • you’ll still have to travel the same distance, it’ll just be quicker.

  2. I hope they explore the Azreal storyline from City really in depth.

  3. So excited about this game!

  4. I can’t wait to collect all 4 million Riddler trophies… :(
