‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Promises to Reveal ‘How the Batman Died’

Batman: Arkham Knight,” the conclusion to the Arkham videogame trilogy, is now available — and it includes a storyline promising to reveal “how the Batman died.”

The game comes from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, and was developed by Rocksteady Studios. “Batman: Arkham Knight” is available for Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One and Windows PC, priced at $60 or $40 for the six-month season pass version.

The game features the Arkham Knight, a new and original character in the Batman universe who teams up with supervillain Scarecrow, as well as other foes including Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Two-Face, Firefly and the Riddler. Joining Batman in the ultimate battle for Gotham City are his allies Commissioner Gordon, Oracle, Alfred, Lucius Fox, Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing.

In “Batman: Arkham Knight,” players for the first time in the series will be able to drive a newly introduced Batmobile through Gotham City that’s capable of transforming from high-speed “pursuit mode” to military-grade “battle mode.” In addition, a new “dual-play” feature is available in certain areas of the game to let players switch between The Dark Knight and his fellow heroes, including Robin, Nightwing and Catwoman.

Warner Bros. originally planned to release “Batman: Arkham Knight” last fall, but wanted to give Rocksteady additional time to create the game. The two previous releases in the series are “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and “Batman: Arkham City.”

“The Batman: Arkham series is one of Warner Bros.’ most popular and critically acclaimed video game franchises, and with ‘Batman: Arkham Knight,’ we are giving players the game they have always asked for,” said David Haddad, EVP and G.M. of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “’Batman: Arkham Knight’ is the culmination of Rocksteady Studios’ dedication to deliver both an amazing narrative tale and thrilling gameplay experience from beginning to end.”

The “Batman: Arkham Knight” season pass will deliver regular new content for six months after launch, including: a new prequel story expansion, “Batgirl: A Matter of Family”; new story objectives featuring supervillains invading Gotham; missions that allow players to assume the role of Batman’s key allies; iconic Batmobiles from Batman’s 75-year history that can be driven on custom-built racetracks.

“Batman: Arkham Knight” is rated “M” for mature by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
